This semester, VSU is making it easier than ever for students to chow down through new options and deals offered by VSU Dining.
One new feature available to students is the on-campus pizza delivery. This allows residents to order pizza seven days a week from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m.
This isn’t the only “take out” option that VSU dining is offering. Now, students can make a one-time purchase of an eco-friendly clamshell from Palms and take their food to-go. This is a step up from the previous years where students weren’t allowed to take any food out of the premises.
VSU Dining has also changed the hours of operation for the two dining halls. Now, Hopper Dining Hall is open 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and again from 4:30-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The new hours will allow students to eat lunch at Hopper Dining, whereas in Fall 2014, the dining hall was closed until 5 p.m.
New deals are also being offered, which include any flavor 32 ounce cup of frozen yogurt from Pinkberry for $5 all day, every Thursday. Moe’s is also charging only $5.55 for any homewrecker, chips and salsa combo every Monday and Thursday.
“I think that the extended hours and deals are great for people with meal plans,” Elijah Jones, junior mass media major, said. “The deals help everyone’s dining dollars last longer for the semester, and students won’t have to stress so much on budgeting them for the entire semester. Plus, students get hungry later in the night, so the hours work out greatly in our favor.”
The new Palms Dining pizza delivery option as well as Chick-fil-A and Starbucks in the Student Union will now be available on the app Tapingo.
