Passport Lunches

Our London Passport program encourages students to seek out and reflect on new experiences during their time abroad, building their global citizenship. To support individual adventures and considerations, the Syracuse London Staff hold a weekly Passport Lunch – a targeted time for students to come together to discuss relevant topics. Students engaging in the entirety of the session receive lunch (with gluten free, nut free, dairy free, and vegan options) and a passport stamp.

The schedule is built to allow for a variety of categories to be discussed communally throughout the semester, and will occasionally change to allow for us to share perspectives on major events and ongoing news. In Spring 2019, students are invited to join us in the Student Lounge from 1-2pm for the following lunchtime conversations:


Date Passport Category Topic
Tuesday 29 January Art, Architecture & Heritage Becoming a Londoner
Wednesday 6 February Sport, Wellbeing & the Environment Mental Health
Tuesday 12 February Global Professional Academic Writing Workshop
Wednesday 20 February Sport, Wellbeing & the Environment Ethical Tourism
Wednesday 20 March Social & Political Justice Politics and You
Monday 25 March Global Professional CVs and Career Apps
Wednesday 3 April Sport, Wellbeing & the Environment Mental Health
Tuesday 9 April Social & Political Justice Brexit: What does it mean?
Wednesday 17 April Any Returning (Home & UK)

Wednesday 24 April: Celebrate your engagement and the growth of your global citizenship at our End of Semester Awards! All are welcome, and lunch will be served.
(Remember the deadline for submitting reflections and work for the London Passport Program is Monday 8 April.)
