Dinner with 12 Strangers

Dinner with 12 Strangers
Started in the spring of 2011, Dinner with 12 Strangers brings together members of the UW-Eau Claire community for a night a food, conversation, and fun. It's a casual, laid-back atmosphere with no set agenda—just dinner and the company and conversation of other members of the university community.
Four students, four staff members, and four faculty members who register by the deadeline are chosen at random to enjoy a meal and an evening of conversation at the home of a member of the university community. Arrive as strangers; leave as friends!
There are four host sites for the spring semester dinners:
  • Tuesday, April 8, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
  • Monday, April 14, 5:00 - 7:00 PM
  • Tuesday, April 15, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
  • Thursday, April 17, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
All students, faculty, and staff are invited to sign up for a chance to have Dinner with 12 Strangers! Register for a chance to be selected for this semester's Dinner with 12 Strangers here: . 

Please register by 12:00 PM on Monday, March 31, 2014. Students, faculty, and staff selected for this semester's Dinner with 12 Strangers will be notified by 5:00 PM on Friday, April 4, 2014.
