Community & Student Life

Learning, Leadership, Lifelong Bonds

At the Carroll School, support and collaboration complement the challenge of rigorous curricula. Members of our community work closely together across programs, helping each other fulfill their potential while building lifelong relationships. Faculty, administrators, staff, and alumni invest genuinely in students’ success, providing individualized guidance and often meeting one-on-one.

A variety of learning and leadership opportunities further enrich the academic experience. Co-curricular programs—including several student-run organizations—and hundreds of events provide venues throughout the year for students to enhance their knowledge of specific business areas. They learn the skills that will benefit them during their careers while working with like-minded peers and meeting professionals in a broad range of fields.

The Take Home Prof program provides students with the opportunity to get to know their professor outside of the classroom.  Students are given $100 to cook dinner for their professor in their residence hall or off-campus apartment.

How does it work?  Invite a professor to dinner in your residence hall or apartment and you will receive a $100 allowance to a grocery store for the meal. Contact the professor and come up with a date and time for the dinner.  Once the plans are set, send one email to all the participants and Erica Graf at with the date, time, and location. 

The rules are as follows:

1.  Students must be sophomores, juniors, or seniors in the Carroll School.

2.  There must be at least three Carroll School students attending the dinner with the professor.

3.  If you have a kitchen in your apartment on or off campus, students will cook the professor dinner.

4.  If you don’t have a kitchen, you can get take-out for the professor from a restaurant of your choice.

5.  Professors can only attend one dinner per semester.  So act fast if you want to invite a particular professor!

6.  There are only 13 Take Home Prof events per semester.

7.  A picture must be taken and submitted to Erica Graf at




Grab a few of your classmates and take your professor to lunch (on us!) 

The Carroll School of Management introduces “Lunch with a Professor.”   We will give you a dining card to use at any of the on-campus dining hall locations to have coffee or lunch with one of your professors.  Space is limited so reserve yours today!

3.      Reserve the dining card on the Doodle schedule at least 48 hours in advance.

4.      Stop by Fulton 315 to pick up the card after 10:00 am on the morning of your lunch.

6.      After lunch, return the card to Fulton 315 along with a receipt from the dining hall by 3:00 pm on the same day.
