During spring semester 2014, a group of faculty, staff, and administrators worked together to invent C-Cubed Lunches—the three Cs standing for Conversation, Community, and Collegiality. We wanted a chance to meet and get to know our colleagues in an easy, enjoyable fashion. We wanted a quiet space for conversation; we wanted to include folks who prefer to bring their lunch to campus; and we wanted to be inclusive of vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters.
C-Cubed lunches are served buffet-style from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays throughout the school year in the Alumni Lounge in the Memorial Union Building, a space with lots of windows and a southern exposure. Menus are overseen by executive chef Eric Karvonen; he and his team bring their creativity and culinary skills to the task. There are no presentations, no agenda. All employees and their guests are invited.
Lunch is $12. Cash, credit cards, and C-Cubed gift certificates (available in the Memorial Union office) are accepted. You can bring your own lunch instead of purchasing the buffet. Coffee, tea, fruit-infused water, cookies, and fruit are free for all. All vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free items on the buffet are labeled for easy identification.
