Dinners with Anteaters, formerly known as Dinners for 12 Anteaters, is a program that brings students, alumni, staff, and faculty together for an evening of food, fun and engagement throughout Orange County. Each fall, undergraduates are invited to a dinner hosted by volunteer alumni.
Organized by the Student Alumni Association and in cooperation with the UC Irvine Alumni Association, the event began in 2003 and has become an Anteater tradition. Last year, the event brought more than 400 participants together to share stories, learn about the university, and strengthen the university community.
Anteater alumni graciously open their homes and not only provide current students with a free dinner meal, but also advice and mentorship. Given the small, comfortable setting of this event, alumni get the rare opportunity to engage with students on a personal level, by sharing their stories and advice about life at UCI and life after graduation.
