Dining & Food Services

Did you Know? The Dining and Food Services Department expanded the The Dining Club Program in order to respond to student needs for to-go options within their unlimited access plan. This concept is so popular, that it was recently rolled out to the Student Union Building, where the new Lobo-To-Go location offers to-go meals for members of the Dining Club in a central location on campus.
