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:
