Dinner On Us

Dinner On Us (DOU) is a parent education workshop series offered most Monday evenings during the academic year. The program series offers an ever changing series of topics for parents including: children's stages of development, behavior guidance strategies, child and family nutrition, creating family rituals, parenting time management, pediatric medical and dental issues, children and the media, and maintaining healthy family relationships. Participation in the program is open to campus and Amherst Family Center (AFC) families with young children. Undergraduate students may arrange for independent study credits through contracts with academic departments.

DOU workshops are held in the Student Union and include a free family dinner, supervised children's activities, and free parking. It is a unique opportunity for parents and grandparents to participate in educational workshops and round table discussions.

Please check out our Spring 2018 lineup of Dinner On Us speakers! Please note that there is no Dinner on Us during thanksgiving recess.
