Reunited: Return to Campus – Dining Services Update
I hope you are doing well and are following the health and safety guidelines regarding
COVID-19. As you prepare for the return to campus, I wanted to share key information
with you concerning dining services. It is important to follow these guidelines to
mitigate the risk of spreading COVID-19. While this semester will certainly be different,
ASU student affairs is committed to giving you the best collegiate experience possible.
- Social distancing will be required in all dining facilities. Disposable eating utensils
will be available at each of the serving lines. Disposable paper products will be
used for all locations to include cups, plates and napkins. The meal plan (swipes)
in the dining halls, will be active and available for use beginning with brunch/lunch
on Tuesday, August 4. Dining Dollars will be activated for use on Monday, August 24,
provided all fees due the university have been paid in full or that appropriate financial
aid is authorized to cover the full balance on your account. Please save/download/screenshot
the attached dining services flyer. This flyer includes hours and operations for dining
locations on East and West Campus.
- Seating in the East and West Campus dining halls is very limited; therefore, all meals
will be served “to go” in a carry out container. Satellite locations for additional
dining service are located on the second floor of the Student Center and in the Ballroom
on both campuses. Guests who opt to be seated in the dining areas will be limited
to a stay of 45 minutes. Guests should be prepared to exit the building after that time, to allow for others
to dine in (should they so choose).
- Social distancing during dine in will be observed as per DPH and CDC guidelines for
restaurants. All orders will be carry-out for Chick-Fil-A, Pizza Hut, Chilaca, Golden
Espresso and Rams Hideaway. The food truck will not be operating fall semester 2020.
- Breakfast will be served in the main café on both east and west campus. Lunch and
dinner will be served in the main cafes as well as all satellite locations on both
campuses. Entry into the dining locations will be limited in order to maintain social
distancing in the serving lines. Please be patient and plan your lunch and dinner
hours accordingly. The same menu will be served in all dining locations.
- Questions and issues related to meal plans should be directed to the auxiliary services
specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone at 229-500-2886.
- Questions and issues related to dining operations should be directed to the resident
district manager at Amanda.Patterson@aladdinfood.com or 229-500-2016.
If you have any questions regarding the Reunited (Return to Campus) Plan, please email
email@example.com. Our priority is to ensure your health and safety, while also ensuring academic excellence
and student success. That’s our Golden RAM Guarantee. I am excited for your return
and hopeful for a RAM-tastic semester.
