Lunch and Learn offers students life advice

The information students learn every day in class is undoubtedly important, but it takes much more than knowledge of a subject to be successful in life. A student needs to be diverse in his or her skills and abilities. Lunch and Learns, which generally take place Tuesdays and Thursdays during a time when students do not have class, give students free lunch while teaching them about various topics.
Started in spring 2015 by Eric Blacknall, associate vice president for student success and dean of students, and the success coaches, the Lunch and Learns are geared toward helping students learn ways to improve their lives by learning about building a good resume, salary negotiation and many other skills.
When deciding what topic they should focus on for the week, the success coaches brainstorm ideas and look at what students are interested in or worried about. For example, since many students have trouble with money, the last Lunch and Learn focused on managing finances effectively. Since many students worry about how to get a job after college, another Lunch and Learn concentrated on how to make your job in college lead to a job after graduation.
The next Lunch and Learn will take place Tuesday, Nov. 10 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Laun 110 and will focus on creating a competitive resume.
