Lunch and Learns

Lunch & Learn

One of the greatest benefits for our members is the Lunch & Learn series that we hold almost weekly at the school. Each year, we are lucky enough to invite businesses such as yours to join us for an hour and discuss topics, products, or services pertaining to the dental profession. While our members receive pertinent information, some of which we may not receive in school, our sponsors are able to interact and form a relationship with their future clientele. 

 

In general, we accept a donation for the food for the lunch, which we then order and set up.  The donation levels are outlined below and depend on the types of food:

 

Premier Tier (ex. Panera): $1,500

Maize Tier (ex. Subs): $1,100

Blue Tier (ex. Pizza): $700

 

Panera or Qdoba boxes generally promote the highest attendance, but regardless, our lunches typically have a 120 member attendance, the highest of any student group at our school. We hold the lunches in a lecture room with a computer connection and projector, so your speaker will have the resources they need for their presentation. We are happy to make any other accommodations necessary and will work with you directly to make your lunch a success.

 

If you are interested in hosting a lunch, please contact our Lunch and Learn coordinator, Tasha Deb (tashadeb@umich.edu)

 

D3/D4 Social Events

D3/4 Dinner Date

Similar to a Lunch & Learn, our D3/D4 Social Events give sponsors much more one-on-one interaction with students where they are able to sit down with them and explain opportunities, job prospects, and much more. While the dinner may have fewer attendees, they will be D3 and D4 members looking for opportunities following graduation. This allows companies to focus their presentation to this audience while also getting to interact in a more intimate setting.

 

Advertising Fee for the Social Events: $150

Prices vary for this type of event, depending on the location, food, drink, and resources required. Our previous Social Events have been in the range of $500-$800.

If you are interested in holding a Dinner Date, please contact our coordinator, Tasha Deb (tashadeb@umich.edu)

 

Football Tailgates

Michigan Football season is one of the most exciting times in Ann Arbor! Every home game, the dental school community hosts a tailgate (all student-ran) that's right on the golf course, next to the Michigan Big House. With dental students, family, and friends stopping by, it's the go-to place to hangout with the community. 

Interested in sponsoring and collaborating with a home-game football tailgate? Please reach out to our coordinator, Tasha Deb (tashadeb@umich.edu)

Cost: $1,500 for food (burgers, hotdogs, chips, salsa, pretzels, etc) and drinks for all of the students attending, and extensive advertising.
