Lunch Connections

Lunch Connections Logo


College of Business Students - Want to build a stronger connection with one of your professors? Wouldn’t it be nice to learn a bit more about your professor’s background and how they have achieved their success? 

College of Business Professors - Want to learn a bit more about some of your exceptional students? Ever wonder about the challenges our international students face as they decide to leave their country to study here?

Not only can Lunch Connections help provide the answers, but lunch is on us. Students can take a professor to lunch and the College of Business (COB) will pay the bill. Or, an instructor can take a student to lunch and we’ll cover the check.  That’s right – a free lunch does exist!

The College of Business at CSU, Chico is filled with outstanding faculty and staff. As COB students, you have the chance to connect and learn from faculty and staff members through our Lunch Connections program. The program is designed for COB students and faculty/staff to grow relationships that extend beyond the classroom.
