What's Better than Peanut Butter & Jelly?
We took two awesome things - eating lunch & learning - and combined them into one even awesomer1 combo that we creatively named....[drum roll]..... 'Lunch & Learn' and we would venture to say that it's an even better combo than peanut butter and jelly. Keep reading to find out more.
So, what's this Lunch & Learn combo actually like?
A typical Lunch & Learn session consists of a 15-minute faculty presentation followed by 15 minutes of casual discussion inspired by the presentation.
At each session we also hold a drawing and one lucky winner will take home a wireless presenter.

Lunch & Learn FAQ's
- Will attending Lunch & Learn make me more respected by my peers, and just cooler in general?
- Yes, absolutely! Some of the most respected names in the industry are Lunch & Learn attendees.
- When is it?
- It's at lunch time of course! Okay, now the serious answer: it is from 12:15 to 12:45 every Tuesday during weeks 2-9 of each term.
- Where do I find this intriguing Lunch & Learn?
- We always meet in ESB15 - we find the venue to be spacious and very casual.
- Is there a secret knock or handshake that I will need to get in?
- No, not at this time. We are looking into converting the Lunch & Learn into a secret society, but haven't been able to come up with enough money for the application fee.
- Since Lunch & Learn is better than peanut butter and jelly, will it make my PB&J not taste as good if I eat it at the Lunch & Learn?
- You would think so, but we've actually found that they taste even better at the Lunch & Learn. We think it might have something to do with quantum entanglement.
We are looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday!
