Lunch idea, possibly have a student lunch, with each table arranged according to their interests. Needs to be more organized than last year’s “venting session”.

Or, maybe not just by interest, but more organized according to stages in program, and possibly get a cut of multiple different points of view.

A critic noted that very little information “changes hands” in these forums, and it doesn’t really matter what the format is. We need lunch anyways.
