To ensure that luncheons are filled on a first-come, first-served basis, only those who register online will be able to sign up for adviser luncheons. Luncheons will be marked as “FULL” on the online registration form once the limit for attendees is reached.

Tickets for the luncheons are $35 and should be paid with your registration. The deadline to register for adviser luncheons is April 4. Tickets will be in the adviser registration packets and are required for admission.
