Announcements & Coming Soon

Through a joint effort with Dining Services, EMS is now accepting catering service order requests online! Most common requests are available to easily order through EMS, and more menu items will be added in the future. Full service meals (plated/buffet dinners, etc.) must be requested by contacting Dining Services at this time.
