Out 2 Lunch is a program that encourages students to engage with their faculty members outside of class and over casual conversation, which maximizes the UA community. In partnership with Bama Dining, first-year students have two opportunities to use their meal plan towards taking a faculty member out to lunch with the goal of increasing informal interaction and therefore improve their transition to The University of Alabama.
