Research Brown Bag Sessions Return!


Are you ready to hop on a journey of discovery, innovation, and collaboration? If so, mark your calendars, because our highly anticipated Brown Bag sessions are back, and they’re set to turn up the excitement and foster information sharing more than ever before!

What’s a Brown Bag Session?

For those unacquainted with the concept, allow me to paint a vivid picture. Brown Bag sessions are not just mere gatherings. They are an informal dynamic platform meticulously designed to encourage discourse and cultivate a culture of innovation within our academic family. The meetings are called Brown Bag sessions because they take place at midday, and participants are given Brown Bags(Lunch).


Why are these sessions so important, especially for students?

Well, imagine having the opportunity to interact with the world of research, engaging in thought-provoking discussions, and receiving invaluable feedback from esteemed faculty members and peers who share your zeal for Research. That’s precisely what the Brown Bag sessions offer. A space where both Strathmore University students and staff showcase their research ideas and projects, exchange insights and gain valuable feedback from peers and mentors alike.

But it’s not just about showcasing research; it’s also about honing essential skills like presentation, critical thinking, and collaboration—skills that are invaluable not only in academia but also in the professional world beyond.

We are honored to host a presentation by a distinguished member of our School of Tourism and Hospitality, Dr. Nyabisi Mengo, who will delve into the captivating realm of online reviews and their profound impact on the traveling community.


Think about it—how often do we rely on online reviews to guide our travel decisions, whether it’s choosing a hotel, a restaurant, or an attraction? Understanding the importance of online reviews is not just relevant; it’s essential for anyone interested in the dynamics of the tourism industry and its ever-evolving landscape.
