Your nightly all-you-care-to-eat (AYCE) meal is intended as a time to dine together with friends and peers in a whole-community setting.
If you have an unavoidable need to eat dinner away from Goudy, one of our café staff will gladly escort you into the cafe and help you build a to-go meal. Busy periods may require a brief wait for assistance. We appreciate your patience should you experience a delay.
Please understand that to-go containers and materials may not be taken into the Goudy seating areas at dinner. Should we assist you with building a to-go meal, we will need to ensure that you exit Goudy promptly once your meal is boxed up and ready.
We are also happy to assist you by having a boxed meal (sandwich, chips, whole fruit, cookie, and canned soda or bottled water) ready for you to pick-up if you contact us in advance. Orders must be placed by 2:30 p.m. on the pick-up date. To place your order, please call x6511 and ask to speak to a Café Manager or Supervisor.
Our Declining Balance Calendar is produced to help our students understand where they maybe in regards to budgeting dining points throughout the semester. We also post these calendars in each of our food venues and our cashiers are happy to tell you your points balance each time you purchase a meal or snack in our cafés and the Montag Store. Please remember to check this against your balance weekly as to ensure you are not running out of points. For additional assistance with your meal plan, please visit Residential Services in the Service Center. You can also make an appointment to speak with one of our Café Managers at anytime.
