Take a Faculty Member to Breakfast or Lunch (March 25, 2024-May 29, 2024)

The Undergraduate Deans Office, with support from Student Assembly, is pleased to sponsor the extremely popular Take a Faculty Member to Breakfast or Lunch program at 1953 Commons and Pine Restaurant in the Hanover Inn.

Take a Faculty Member to Breakfast or Lunch

This program is designed to encourage undergraduate students and faculty to have substantive conversations outside of the classroom, engaging around topics of academic interests, future studies, and general life experiences. Students may utilize this program once per term, whether requesting the voucher or as a guest, until the last day of classes.

While we encourage meeting one-to-one to strengthen the faculty-student relationship, groups of no more than 3 students may attend a given meal with one professor. 


Log into DartHub and click on the tab, "Take a Faculty Member to Lunch". Follow the instructions given.

  • Vouchers are valid for breakfast or lunch, Monday - Friday at PINE and 53 COMMONS.
  • We strongly recommend making a reservation at Pine. Especially the closer it is to the end of the term.
  • Keep the establishment hours in mind when reviewing your schedule and inviting the faculty member.
  • This program is for students and faculty only (not for use with a coach, CD, administrator, dean, TA, etc).


  1. You will request your voucher
  2. A voucher will be sent to your email
  3. Print the voucher
  4. Present voucher to server at PINE or 53 Commons when ordering


**Students may utilize this program once a term as either a guest or requestor! That's right, you have an opportunity each term to interact with faculty**

1. A voucher for Pine provides each guest with $30 for the meal. The voucher will be collected by the server at the end of the meal; each voucher may only be used once.

2. Plan for the tip at Pine: a $50 meal will require a $10 tip (20%). Tip must be included! Students are responsible for any amount beyond what is covered by the voucher. For example, if your meal + tip totals $65, and your voucher is $60, you are responsible for the additional $5. You do not need to account for the tip at 1953 Commons. 

3. Student may not tamper with or edit the voucher in any way. If you need to change the date of your lunch, email undergraduate.deans.office@dartmouth.edu.

4. Only 1 voucher may be used per meal.

5. If you (a student) attend a meal as a guest but are not the requester of the voucher, the meal still counts as your one time use for the term.

6. A maximum of 3 students and 1 professor may attend a given meal.

7. Alcohol may not be purchased with voucher.

8. Request the voucher before your meal; reimbursements cannot be offered if you pay for a lunch without a voucher.

9. Vouchers must be used on or before the last day of classes of the term in which they are requested.
