How do I sign up to attend a Dinner with Techers event?
Students can sign up online here. Please do not sign up if you are not serious about attending the event. Please note that signing up does not automatically confirm your participation in the event. Students will sign up on a first come-first serve basis, and an email confirmation will be sent out to the student attendees no later than 2 business days prior to the actual event date. There will be a waitlist if open spots become available.

What if I sign up and cannot make it to the lunch or dinner?
Signing up and then not showing up for the meal not only prevents another student from attending, but it also is disrespectful to the alum who has taken time out of their day to host and pay for the meal for students. If you sign up and cannot attend, please email studentprograms@alumni.caltech.edu immediately so that another student can take your place.

 How will I get to the lunch or dinner?
Once you receive an email confirmation for your participation in Dinner with Techers, students will be responsible for their own transportation to/from the restaurant. It is encouraged that students connect with each other to coordinate carpooling together. 

Do I have to pay for my own meal?
No, the alumni host will cover the cost of your meal.

When do these Dinner with Techers events typically begin?
Typically, lunches begin around 12PM, and dinners begin around 6PM. Ultimately, the alumni hosts will determine the start and end time of the event.

How many students will attend the event with me?
There will be about 4-6 student attendees in total per meal.

Can alcohol be served at the lunch or dinner?
No, serving alcohol is not permitted at any time during the meal.
