The Center provides catered lunches are served Monday through Friday in the lunchroom (Watt Common Room) at noon. The Center covers the cost of the lunches and makes every effort to provide a consistently good menu. Should you prefer, you are also welcome to bring your own food (or just enjoy the conversation).
Please feel free to invite occasional guests to lunch at the Center on any weekdays except days on which the weekly presentations are given (to allow adequate space and food for guests of the fellow presenting that day). Former fellows have an open invitation to come to lunch, so you will likely meet some of them during your year at the Center.
The Center recognizes that fellows may wish to go to lunchtime talks in departments relevant to their work or have occasional private lunches. For this reason, though daily attendance is welcome and encouraged, the Center expects attendance at lunch just four days a week.
Attendance at the weekly research presentations is also expected. As a courtesy, if you will be unable to attend a weekly research presentation, please let the directors and the fellow presenting know ahead of time.
