DIVINITY SCHOOL CAFE—A new report suggests that 80% of FLUNCH appointments are straight up attempts for students to raise their grades.
The survey, conducted by Duke administrators, revealed that a vast majority of students meeting with their professors for lunch through the FLUNCH program were motivated to do so solely to boost their GPAs, and not because they had any interest in getting to know their professors as people.
Indeed, as finals week approaches and students are noticing their grades fall, FLUNCH requests have increased 90%.
In response, most professors said that they are okay with the set up because they “could really use the free lunch.”
The survey’s findings also suggest that the other 20% of FLUNCH meetings are initiated by students hoping to sleep with their professors.
