Dome Room Dinners

Dine In The University's Most Iconic Building

Top off your Family Weekend with an unforgettable experience: consider entering the lottery for one of the Dome Room Dinners. In these incredibly popular events, families may dine on Grounds in the University's original library while listening to a lecture from one of our premier faculty members.

There are two Dome Room Dinners hosted during Family Weekend. Due to limited space and popularity, all interested parties are entered in a lottery and selected at random. This year's dinners will be held on Friday, October 18 and Saturday, October 19. Both will begin at 6:30 p.m. Speakers will ne Sherri Moore (Friday) and Connie Chic Smith (Saturday).

The cost to attend the dinner is $80 per person, regardless of age. Attendees who are selected from the lottery will be notified the week of September 30 via email.


The Lottery

Because of this event's popularity and due to the fact that space is limited to 100 guests, all interested parties are entered into a lottery and selected at random.

The deadline to register for the lottery was Friday, September 27.
