Pack-out for Teams, Campus Groups and Student Organizations
We recognize that there may be times during the academic year that students in your organization find it impossible to attend meals in the Dining Hall at the normally scheduled meal times. The Pack-out program was designed to accommodate those instances! If your college-sponsored group, club or team cannot attend the normally scheduled meal in the dining hall, you may order a Pack-out meal (minimum of 15 students) and, in exchange, an equivalent board meal will be deducted from each student’s weekly allowance. The following information will guide you through the steps necessary to meet the requirements of this program.

All menu items are packed in bulk recyclable containers and include recyclable serviceware, plates, and bowls, cutlery, napkins and condiments. Please let us know of any allergies that may need to be accommodated.
