Dining Updates Fall 2021

Fall Menu Updates & Improvements

We are very happy to be back on campus and reconnecting with the community! We've been faced with some real challenges while getting back to a "new normal" as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and related impacts. We are dealing with regional and national supply and staffing shortages, and we empathize with the reality and the frustrations of our customers. CAS is determined to persevere and continue to make improvements as challenges are presented. We will continue to keep our customers informed through measures such as this website, weekly updates to students, and frequent updates in social media, online menus, and digital signage. Below is a list of menu improvements as they occur and will be ongoing. Please continue to reach out directly to and provide us with your feedback. We do value your input!
