The Noon Meal Plan includes your choice of the noon daily special and beverage; or an entree item, one side dish, and a beverage.

These plans represent considerable savings on your lunch cost, but you must use them each day and cannot transfer or save them for someone else.

Please check with your instructor if the classes you take will allow you to use the meal plan every day. We can prorate meal plans if you do not have class everyday, but we need to know that before you buy the plan. We will not refund anything after two weeks from the start of the school year.

Catering for Special Programming

Food and beverages are welcome on campus. It is up to the organization hosting the event to schedule a caterer.
