In the interest of helping students build networks and make friends, Dr. Lu Sweet started "Lunch with Lu". The goal is to create a sense of comrodery between the students and a feeling of inclusion. Lu and her colleagues, Art Castillo, Daisy Moore, Hank Ketelsen, Jen Salmon, and Joy Adams invited students sitting alone to join them for lunch.
Lu and friends are inviting students, faculty and staff to join them in making new friends with people from all walks of life. At the last event, about 20 students from all different backgrounds had the opportunity to spend time together, including meeting some faculty members and staff.
The students who met at "Lunch with Lu" chose to sit together after the event. Daisy Moore said that one of the students even convinced his new friend to join Radio Club!
