MEAL with DePaul Student and Scholar Application: Fall 2019
MEAL with DePaul gives international students and scholars a chance to learn about U.S. food and culture. DePaul faculty and staff will volunteer to host small groups of students and scholars (typically 3-6) at their home for a meal. You will have the opportunity to meet other students and learn more about the city of Chicago and DePaul University.
MEALs are scheduled to take place between 12-3pm or 5-8pm. Your host will contact you directly to confirm exactly when you should arrive for your MEAL. We recommend that you travel together with the other students and scholars in your group via public transportation to your host's home.
Students and scholars are selected to participate based on the order in which applications are received. Priority will be given to students and scholars who have never participated in the program before and who are in their first year of study at DePaul.
