Meals To Go
Looking for a meal on the run?
Students are allowed to take their Dining Hall meals to go. Just ask at the front counter. We offer reusable to-go containers to help reduce our carbon footprint on the environment.
The containers are available for sale in the Little Building C-Store for $5.00, and can only be used in the Dining Hall. Compostable to-go containers are available for $0.50 each.
Students can return their used reusable to-go containers to the Dining Hall in exchange for a new, clean container or a rain check to receive a container at a later time.
Please ask a manager in the Dining Hall for more details.
