The Northwestern Alumni Association invites you to participate in Dinner with Twelve. For the summer session, July 26 -28, current undergraduate, graduate students, and alumni are welcome to register as guests. This fun Northwestern tradition is a wonderful opportunity for you to engage with alumni and students in an informal setting within your region.

Alumni will host each dinner for 6 to 12 guests either in their home or another location, such as a restaurant. Our goal for each dinner is to build community by developing new friendships among 12 “strangers.”

The registration will open in June for guests. Please e-mail with any questions.
