Inspired by his experience at his Oxford College, Exeter, President Lahey hosts a popular event for students: “Lunch in the Boardroom,” designed to connect students with King’s alumni.
The format is simple—and effective. Periodically throughout the term, approximately six to eight students, selected on a first-come, first-served basis, join the president for a light meal and conversation with a King’s alumni member.
Alumni guests share their career paths and experiences, showing how their King’s education set the stage for the contributions they have made to their community after King’s.
Please note: Normally the lunches are held in the President’s Lodge. In 2021-22, to facilitate added social distancing, the lunches are taking place in the Boardroom.
