“I’d like to host a Dinner…”
As a member of the UNC General Alumni Assocation and a part of the Carolina family, you now have the unique opportunity to enhance your lifelong connection to the University of North Carolina through its current students.
The Dinner for 12 Tar Heels program is an initiative to bring 12 GAA alumni and student members together for an off-campus meal and mutually beneficial fellowship.
We are looking for all alumni friends who would like to connect with current UNC students and who enjoy entertaining guests. Alumni hosts can choose almost any night throughout the academic year to welcome students into their home for dinner.
If you’re interested in opening your home as an alumni dinner host, please contact Kylie Apple to view available dates.
“I think I live too far away.”
It’s beneficial for hosts to live within walking distance of campus or a Chapel Hill Transit bus stop. An alternative is that hosts also can sponsor a dinner at a local restaurant or co-host with another party at their home closer to campus.
“I think my house is too small.”
Unable to accommodate 12 Tar Heels? How about 6? You can choose how many people you would like to host, depending on the size of your home, your budget or dinner style.
“I can’t/don’t like to cook.”
College students are just happy to have food and great company. Some hosts may choose to offer a home-cooked meal; others may opt for party platters. The choice is yours.
“I work late.”
You are welcome to host a dinner during the week or a weekend to accommodate work and academic schedules. Your dinner can begin at any time, although 6 p.m., is preferred.
“I don’t have a lot of time.”
After you register, we take care of coordinating everything else with the students. Students will sign up online and will be given the date, time and location of your dinner. All you have to do is provide the food.
