Where do I register for a meal plan?
You can register for a meal plan at the Housing Office.

Can I change my meal plan?
Returning students may change their meal plans only during the first two weeks of classes in the fall and spring semester. Meal plan changes are made at the Housing Office.

How are my meals accounted for?
Each time you enter the Dining Hall a meal will be deducted and tracked by computer. You may also use your meals at the Eagle Grille and Snackers. The cashier will be able to tell you how many meals remain on your meal plan for the week. A meal plan begins Sunday breakfast and ends Saturday dinner. Meals not used during the week are not carried over to the following week unless you're on the 135 meal plan.

Are meal plans transferrable?
Only you may use your card, no one else.

What do I do if my card is lost or stolen?
Report it immediately to the Dining Service office. This will ensure that no one else can use your card. Go to the Housing Office to get a replacement card.

How do I make a healthy choice?
CSC Dining Service understands there is a need for nutritious, low fat food options. We serve "Heart Smart" entrees at lunch and dinner seven days a week. The Dining Hall also serves a full salad and deli bar during lunch and dinner. Feel free to mix and match food from one line to the next. To eliminate guesswork, there is nutritional information available for each item we serve. If you have any questions or requests, please ask the dining staff for help.

Can I bring a guest to the dining hall?
Guests may come at any time. Meals can be purchased from the cashier.

What if I have special dietary requirements?
If you are placed on a restricted diet by your physician, please contact the Dining Service Office so we can meet your needs.

Are there other dining options?
On the east side of campus, Snackers is open for late night offerings. The Eagle's Grill, also in the Student Center, can give you a quick meal, or a snack for a change of scenery.

How to purchase your meals, apart from a meal plan? Use Bonus Bucks! Deposits for Bonus Bucks can be made at the Business Office, Deposits of $100 or more receive an additional $10 in Bonus Bucks. Bonus Bucks are purchased in $25 increments.

My job conflicts with the cafeteria meal hours, can I eat at another time?
We will be happy to prepare a to-go, well-balanced meal for you. Stop by the Dining Service Office and ask to arrange for a sack lunch. Requests are taken Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Check out the "Take Out" tab!

If I am sick, can I eat in my room?
Yes, a friend can get food for you. They must present your I.D. card at the Dining Hall where they will sign for your meal. We will provide appropriate containers for transporting your meal. Please call the Dining Service Office at 432-6734 to verify that you are in need of this service and who is going to be picking up your meals. More Information
