Lunch with your Cub is back! Starting October 17th, you can join your Cub on campus during their lunch period. A few things to remember:

  •  Lunch is 30 minutes and time can not be extended. 
  •  Lunch is outside in the courtyard, please dress accordingly.  If it rains or temperatures under 40F, lunches in the courtyard are automatically cancelled.
