Dinner with Interesting People

Join us in McClelland South Lounge every Tuesday for Dinner with Interesting People (DWIP). A variety of guests, such as faculty members, notable businesspersons, politicians, and artists, lead an enlightening conversation before and during a catered dinner.

DWIPs are open to the University of Pennsylvania community, including students, staff, and faculty. As always, Ware residents are especially encouraged to attend.

DWIPs typically consist of a meal and informal table discussion followed by remarks and a discussion with the guest at 6:00 pm. Attendees will be charged one meal swipe
