Dining Discussion Program FAQ

Click here for a video version of the Dining Discussion FAQ

What is the Dining Discussion Program?

As part of Cornell’s First-Year Experience, the Dining Discussion Program enables new students to meet their professors for meal-time discussions in the dining rooms. Participation is encouraged but not mandatory; you are not required to participate.

Why Should I Participate in the Dining Discussion Program?

The Dining Discussion Program is designed to allow students to enhance their understanding of courses, to explore related academic, intellectual and cultural interests, and to get to know faculty members in an informal small-group setting. 

Who Can Participate?

While the Dining Discussion Program is specifically targeted at first-year students, but anyone enrolled in ECON 1110-02 may participate in Dining Discussions for our class.

Where Will We Be Dining?

Throughout the semester, we will be dining at several of the all-you-care-to-eat dining rooms, including Risley Dining RoomNorth Star Dining RoomRobert Purcell Marketplace Eatery, and Okenshields. Times and locations will be announced throughout the semester.

When will the Dining Discussions Take Place?

I will be scheduling several lunches and dinners throughout the semester. If there is sufficient interest, I may also be scheduling some weekend Brunch discussions as well. I will post a schedule of the dates, times and locations of the Dining Discussions on Blackboard and on the Cengage MindTap website for our course.

How Much Does It Cost?

Each student attending an ECON 1110-02 Dining Discussion is expected to pay for his or her own meal. If you have a meal plan, you can swipe your card at the door. If you don’t have a meal plan, you may pay with Big Red Bucks, cash or credit card. Please consult the “Dining” section of the Cornell Website for more information on meal plans and meal pricing.

How do I Participate?

Each scheduled lunch or dinner discussion will have an EventBrite sign up page. If you are planning in attending a discussion, please sign up on EventBrite – this will help me know how many students to expect. Signing up is strongly recommended – if there are no students signed up, the discussion event may be cancelled.
