Join us for a pleasant evening dining with University Professors. Dinner is a home-cooked American meal served banquet style.
Supper with Scholars is a unique dinner banquet for international students and scholars. We host 12 UF professors and their spouses as our guests for the evening. Each professor and his/her spouse will be seated at a table with an IF table host. International students & scholars sit with them and enjoy a home-cooked American dinner together. There is live music during the meal and a special performance after dessert.
Following the musical performance, we have a panel discussion with the professors who address questions from international students and scholars.
Dinner begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, March 21st, 2019, at the Baptist Student Center. To view a map, click here: Directions / Map.
