The Take Your Professor/Staff Out (TYPO/TYSO) program provides funding for students, faculty, and staff to dine together off-campus. The goal of the program is to enrich the Amherst community by allowing students, faculty, and staff to build relationships with one another outside of the classroom and work environment.

TYPO/TYSO is relaunching in Fall 2022 after a long pause because of COVID.  For this semester, we are partnering with 30 Boltwood to host TYPO/TYSO meals.  We look forward to incorporating more local establishments in the spring semester and beyond.  For Fall 2022, the program will run from Wednesday, November 9 through Saturday, December 10 and we are currently accepting requests for TYPO/TYSO outings. Please note, no requests will be accepted or approved during the week of November break.

How does TYPO/TYSO work?

A student can decide to invite a professor or staff member out for either breakfast or dinner. The student host must complete the request form indicating interest in hosting a professor or staff member.  Once confirmed they will make a reservation during their identified time slot. This program is designated for Amherst College students, faculty, and staff and the host may invite up to 4 additional guests (Amherst College students, staff, or faculty).     

Each dining experience is allotted up to $30 per person, plus a 20% tip (alcohol is not included).  If your meal exceeds the amount allotted, your group will have to pay the difference.   Any additional invitees from outside Amherst College are permitted to join at their own expense. 

How to sign up for TYPO/TYSO?

In order to participate in TYPO/TYSO, students organize and arrange a mutually agreeable time to dine with a professor/staff member. Students may host one outing per semester. To request an outing students must fill out the TYPO/TYSO Request form at least three (3) business days in advance of their outing. 

Please note:  We will work to accommodate as many TYPO/TYSO requests as possible. There may be times when the date requested is not available at the restaurant, so please consider a backup date.  Also, if we reach our allocated budget, then we will not be able to approve continued requests.
