Faculty to Lunch

Want to get to know a professor better but don’t know how?

Your student government here at NDSU has created a solution for you. They have created a program call the “Faculty to Lunch” program.

The program is free for everyone. All you have to do is follow three simple steps:

1. Stop into the student government office (memorial union) and fill out a form to get a pizza voucher to Spicy Pie

2. Ask a professor to lunch

Take the voucher and the professor to any Spicy Pie location in Fargo for 2 free slices of pizza and 2 free drinks

What do I do if I Get Locked Out?

- First step is to try your roommate(s) and see if any of them are available to let you back in.

- If they are not home, please try your complex manager next by going to their apartment and seeing if they are home and able to let you in.

- If they are not home, your next step depends on what time of the day it is.

- If it is during normal business hours (8am-5pm) – call Residence Life at 701-231-7557. They will get ahold of the complex manager on-call who will let you in.

- If it is after normal business hours (after 5pm until 8am) or on the weekend, call Campus Police at 701-231-8558. Again, they will get ahold of the complex manager on-call who will let you in.

- When the complex manager gets to your apartment they will ask you to either show them your keys, show them your ID or both. This is to verify that we are letting the correct individual into the correct apartment.

- We understand that accidents happen and tenants get locked out. However, we do keep track of how many times each tenant has been locked-out to see if a pattern emerges. If so, there may be a need for a tenant to have a conduct hearing regarding key use. Please use your keys appropriately!
