Thrive! Lunch Pairings

The Thrive! Ambassadors will offer another round of Thrive! Lunch Pairings this fall. Simply sign up and Thrive! will randomly pair you with a lunch partner.

You and your lunch partner will schedule your own date, time, and location. You will cover your own tab and may each bring one friend or colleague if you would like, and that person does not need to be a member of Thrive! to participate.

If you are interested, please complete this Google Form by 5 p.m. on Monday, October 14. Contact Jessica Schiller at 
jschill2@nd.edu or at 574-631-7923 if you have any questions.
