Campus Dining Fall - Chef Rensford
this fall

something delicious is in the air.

Welcome Back! See what's cooking for fall.

We're so excited to see everyone back on campus. Over the summer, Campus Dining was busy cooking up new ideas for venues and menus. Starbucks in the University Union received a makeover, making it easier to get your favorite beverage. You'll notice our menus have changed too. We've added more of the things you like and taken off the things you don't. Plus, our menus now feature special vegetarian and vegan icons to make finding those items a cinch. We also looked at our events and included a few new ones like our Premium Meal Mondays at 805 Kitchen, which are sure to become a new campus favorite. Make sure to check out all the updates and let us know what you think. We look forward to serving you!

Premium Meal Monday

Every other Monday one of the executive chefs will design and prepare a menu of their choosing that offers a taste (pun intended) of their gastronomic chops. Welcome to Premium Meal Monday. Welcome to the upmarket.
