THRIVE! Presents: Let's Do Lunch and Lunch Pairings

Thrive Lunch Pairings

THRIVE! proudly presents two recurring networking opportunities: Let's Do Lunch and Lunch Pairings.

Let’s Do Lunch

Let’s Do Lunch is a monthly brown-bag lunch event, hosted by THRIVE!’s Ambassador Program. Open to everyone on campus, this is a great opportunity to connect with colleagues and to build your personal and professional networks over lunch. Because there’s no speaker and no agenda, it’s a chance for participants to mingle and get to know each other better. Ambassadors will also be there to answer any questions you might have about THRIVE!

Each event is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Drop in when it’s convenient for you and stay as long as you like—no R.S.V.P. needed. Bring your lunch or just stop by and say hello. Everyone is welcome. View upcoming dates in our events section

Lunch Pairings

THRIVE!’s Lunch Pairings Program is a quarterly initiative to connect employees with others on campus in a one-on-one setting.

Launched in October 2018, the program is open to all employees on campus. After you sign up, you will be randomly matched with a lunch partner. Pairs will then be free to schedule their own date, time, and location for lunch. If you so choose, you may each bring one friend or colleague.

Once you're enrolled in the program, you will automatically receive a new lunch pairing each quarter, unless you choose to opt out.

Interested in being paired up for lunch? Watch for the quarterly signups in the THRIVE! newsletter or in TheWeek@ND. Contact Jessica Schiller at with any questions or suggestions.
