You never have to be shy about asking for seconds at the Yurtchuk Student Center Dining Room. Our generous policy allows for “unlimited seconds” for every item on the menu. All you have to do is ask!

Taking Food from Dining Room

Each student enrolled in a meal plan will receive complimentary access to the Eco To Go program.  Students will receive a Green Carabiner and instruction card at the beginning of the fall semester.  Students who wish to take a meal from the dining hall must exchange either a used Eco To Go container or carabiner at the cashier when entering.  Students taking a meal to go are not permitted to stay and eat their meal in addition to their meal to go.  All containers are washed and sanitized for re-use.  Disposable silverware backs are available at the register.  Students may fill their personal beverage container prior to leaving with their meal.  Lost carabiners or containers may be replaced for $5.

Complimentary Guest Passes

The Gold Plan plan includes 3 guest passes per semester, so bring your family or friends when they visit. It’s proper to always invite a visitor into your kitchen for a bite to eat, and the guest passes allow you to do just that.
