Dine for half price

Family members of students who are meal plan subscribers are invited to join their student at the South Village Dining Hall for a half-priced meal. Our South Village Dining Hall features an outstanding buffet with a large selection of food choices to meet the dining needs of all our guests.

A Year on Campus
