Programs for Students

We care about your growth and development. Coordinated by Marshall College professional staff, these year-long programs are designed to enrich your co-curricular (out of the classroom) experience at UC San Diego. 


The Dine-With-a-Prof and Coffee-With-a-Prof programs allow undergraduate students to have coffee or dine with one of their esteemed faculty members or graduate teaching assistants at no cost!

First, visit the Dine-With-a-Prof website for more information on participating venues.

Then, ask your professor or graduate TA to lunch or coffee.  Once you have a confirmed date, email the following:

  • The full name and email address of the faculty member or graduate teaching assistant (TA).
  • Your name, email, and PID.
  • The date and location of the meeting.

We will prepare a voucher for you to pick up at the Student Affairs Office in the Marshall Administration Building.  One dining voucher per student per quarter while supplies last. 

The meal voucher can be redeemed only by the faculty member or graduate TA with the student as a guest. If another student would like to join your lunch, that student will need to pick up a meal voucher at his/her college of registration.

Your coffee voucher provides one medium-sized beverage for you and your professor/TA. Two coffee vouchers per student per quarter while supplies last.


**Please note: Vouchers must be requested via email with the information above included.  We will not accommodate requests on a walk-in basis. Dine-With-a-Prof and Coffee-With-a-Prof vouchers must be picked up at the Marshall Admin Building at least 2 business days before the scheduled date agreed upon between the student and faculty member or graduate teaching assistant.  We cannot guarantee vouchers will be available if you drop in right before your coffee or lunch meeting.

Each One Reach One

Coordinated by two Student Affairs Dean’s Interns, Each One Reach One (EORO) is a peer mentorship program that pairs first year students with continuing student mentors. Mentors help guide students through their transition to the university by sharing their knowledge of resources, giving them tips to study, and by being a friend! This application-based program opens up recruitment in Fall Quarter.
