Oldenborg Luncheon Colloquium (OLC)

Each semester, Oldenborg invites noted scholars, writers, activists, and professionals to speak on topics of cultural and international interest during the lunch hour. To suggest a speaker, call or email Assistant Director,  Julie Dale at (909) 607-1159.

5C students swipe for lunch and 7C faculty and staff may sign-in for Oldenborg Dining Hall access. Community members may attend at Oldenborg's discretion and incur a charge.

Fall 2020 Note

Due to the Covid pandemic, for the fall semester we decided to prioritize the activities that make up Oldenborg’s core curricular commitment to ensure that our credit-bearing Conversation Classes, support of Mason language faculty’s courses, language tables, and language partners program worked as smoothly as possible. We plan to resume the Luncheon Colloquium in Spring 2021.
