Students hungry for connections or even just hungry for food are welcomed by the Student Government Association (SGA) to join them for a Common Table dinner Wednesday night.
The event is open to all in the Horned Frog community, including faculty, staff and alumni, to join together for dinner and conversation right in the heart of the Campus Commons.
“We really hope that students enjoy this event and meet a new friend, as well as share in some memories,” said incoming Vice President of External Affairs Will Jezek.
Jezek also said he hopes this event will appeal to seniors as it takes place not too far away from commencement.
This Common Table event highlights the fact that TCU is one frog family, no matter where students, faculty and staff might come from.
“I think that we represent something much bigger than ourselves by being a part of the Horned Frog community,” said Class of 2021 representative Jack Leonhard. “It is all about unity. It’s all about getting people around a table, sharing a meal, meeting new people and it’s about uniting TCU.”
Last year this dinner ran under the name of the Frogs Family Dinner. Jezek said he hopes the SGA-sponsored event, brings people together in both informative and fun ways.
“One of my goals is to better connect students, especially those with the Fort Worth community,” Jezek said. “I believe I am achieving this by inviting students to meet local alumni, to meet faculty and staff as well as to learn exactly what SGA is doing on campus. I love the fact that we’re celebrating over something that is so traditional like dinner.”
The dinner will feature chicken, pasta and chocolate cake and it will serve 400 people at one long table in the Commons. For those interested, they can register for the Common Table event at Eventbrite. The event is set to begin at 5:30 p.m.
