Change of Taste

Throughout the year Dining Services hosts Change of Taste events.  These events are to provide a change in culinary experience for students and staff.  These events are created by the culinary and management staff at each dining center to reflect a holiday, tradition, or a new element to share with diners.

The spring Change of Taste events are:

Sundae Sunday starting, Sunday, February 25 at Northside Cafe

  • Northside Cafe is featuring sundaes during dinner on every-other Sunday throughout the spring
