Community Lunch

Every Tuesday – Friday Perkins gathers as a community during the lunch hour to share in a meal and catch up on what is going on in each other lives. Community Lunch is also a time where students make announcements and reminders for all to hear. If you miss community lunch, you miss a great meal and the latest news!  Community Lunch is served in the Refectory in Prothro Hall, at 12:15 pm. (Following Chapel Services)  Menus are posted each week here and in the Perkins News.  For more information contact our Community Chef, Elizabeth Ferguson at

This Week's Menu

The "Perk"

Looking for fun and relaxation between classes?  The “Perk” (Selecman 106) combines the essence of a coffee shop and the comfort of home.   Coffee and snacks, refrigerator/icemaker/vending machines, couches and conversations—the “Perk” is the perfect location for downtime.

CHAP (Community Hour at Perkins) Chats

On Tuesdays at 11:30 a.m., the Perkins community gathers to discuss interesting and relevant topics led by faculty members, guest speakers, and student organizations.  The last Tuesday of each month is reserved for a coffeehouse theme- special music and snacks are provided.  If interested in sponsoring a CHAP or providing music for the coffeehouse, please contact Emily Robnett, Community Life Graduate Assistant.
