Community Life

Perkins School of Theology

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 please email Tracy Anne Allred, Assistant Dean of Student Life and Director of Community Engagement 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.    If interested in sponsoring a CHAP, please contact Laura Figura, Coordinator of Student Life at
