Listed below are the most frequently asked questions and answers for Dining Services. If you have any further questions, please contact us.
Since your I.D. is your “passport” to Dining Services, you will have to either find your card or have a new one made. You can still gain entrance to the Dining Halls with a temporary “lost card voucher”. These may be obtained at the checkstand in either Curtis or Huffman Dining Hall. They are good for two days so that you have time to find your card, or have a new one made in the Residential Service Centers. Your temporary card will not give you access to your Denison Dollars or Flex Dollars at any of the retail facilities, this is to protect your dollars in the event that someone else has your card and wants to spend your money. To replace your student I.D. card please visit a Service Center today.
Denison Dollars are a declining balance account where students can spend money that is deposited into an account. Money is deposited with the Student Accounts Office and then transferred onto your Denison I.D. card. Cash Line prices in the Dining Halls are discounted for Denison Dollar customers. Money is usually available the next day after deposit.
Flex Dollars not used during the Fall semester will roll to the student’s Spring semester meal plan. Unused Flex Dollars are forfeited at the end of the academic year. Unused Denison Dollars will carry over to the next semester. Provided there are no outstanding debts to the university, unspent funds can be refunded at the end of the academic year upon written request to Student Accounts. (This happens automatically when a student graduates or withdraws from the University.) Denison Dollars cannot be refunded mid-semester.
Denison Dining Services are always willing to go the extra mile and help you stay within any dietary guidelines that you may have. We have access to our company dietitian, an on-line interactive site you can visit, and a management staff that is knowledgeable, willing, and ready to help you with your dining needs. Contact the General Manager, Justin Durand for more information.
Plenty! Listed below are just some of the services that we can provide for you. Just ask, and we are liable to help you take care of anything.
Catering Services - We have several levels of catering that customers may choose. Our top line catering can take care of anything from a small working deli lunch, to a full blown plated dinner for hundreds. Contact our catering office for details. Our No Frills Student Organization Catering Guide offers 6 options of even exchange meals that can be picked up in either dining hall for dorm parties, fraternity or sorority meetings, etc. Students must provide a valid list of meal plan participants with full names and I.D. numbers. You can also purchase munchies, snacks, deli trays and beverages at a rate comparable to those in downtown Granville. Contact either dining hall for information or a brochure. Curtis Hall x6346. Huffman Hall x6323.
Our Departmental “Quick and Easy” guide provides options that can be ordered and picked up the same day in Slayter for the Academic/Business Offices on campus where “pop up” lunches and quick meetings/coffees are the norm.
Weddings - Did you know that you can have your dream wedding (after you finish school!) here on campus and have Dining Services provide a beautiful reception for you and your new life partner? Well, you can. Contact Events and Scheduling Office at 740-587-5730 or 740-587-6277 for a brochure. Dorm picnic and parties are easy to organize and pay for when you include Dining Services in your planning. We can help you design the kind of event you want at a price you can afford.
You bet…we need you! We can use all the student employees that we can get. Call Cindy Allen (ext. 6690) or stop by our main office, located in Curtis West (outside of the Veggie Room) to find out more about available positions.
- On campus employment — No car needed!
- Flexible hours — You can work as much or as little as you want.
- Advancement opportunity to a Student Manager Position. Better pay, more responsibility, great resume filler!
- Extra spending money!
- Friends — People in Dining Services are friendly and fun to be with. The camaraderie you experience and the opportunity to work with people from different cultures is an educational advantage that few people get.
Resident Dining Halls are all you can eat facilities. Allowing a cookie or piece of fruit, or an ice cream treat is a way to meet your need for a take out treat, and still control costs. Uncontrolled take out would lead to a much higher meal plan cost as well as create some food safety issues.
