Take a Bronco to Lunch

Take a Bronco to Lunch (TBL) is a mentor program that seeks to match College of Business and Economics (COBE) students with industry professionals for a one-time lunch*. This program allows students to meet with a mentor in a friendly and relaxed setting.

*You are not limited to just lunch! Past TBL sessions have chosen to go to coffee, meet on campus, attend a local event, or even just talk over the phone. This program is less about food (although who doesn’t love a good sandwich?!) and more about facilitating genuine connections.

Student Registration

Registration and matching with a professional is simple. First, we will gather information on your career interests and goals. Next, we will meet with you to begin the matching process. After being matched, we will provide the mentor’s information for you to coordinate a meeting.

Professional Registration

Connecting with a COBE student is easy. First, we will gather information about your career and area of expertise. Next, we use that information to pair you with a student. Once paired, we will provide you with the student’s information. However, the responsibility is on the student to coordinate a meeting.
