The College dining hall (The Commons) provides meals prepared by Pioneer College Caterers, Inc. Students who reside in residence halls are required to be on a meal plan:

** Each meal plan is also accompanied by $50.00 of Cub Cash. Cub Cash (a debit account) can be used in the Dugout and Hebrews Café.

Students on all meal plans will be able to transfer up to 25 meals per semester in the Dugout. A menu as well as meal times will be posted for transfer meals.

All persons entering The Commons must show their valid school ID or pay for meals at the door. Individual meals may also be purchased. Bagged meals will be provided for students on a meal plan who are missing regular meal times when arrangements are made at least 24 hours in advance. The posted meal times will be strictly enforced.

All meals from meal plans are non-transferable from one person to another. No one is permitted to enter The Commons using a meal pass or student ID other than his/her own. If a student enters The Commons using his/her student ID or meal pass and decides not to eat a meal, the meal credit will be forfeited. Unused meals in a given week cannot be credited to a student’s meal plan for future weeks.

Meal plan exemption requests must be completed and submitted to the Student Development Office one month prior to the beginning of the semester and are only granted in extreme medical conditions which cannot be met by Pioneer College Caterers in consultation with their nutritionist.

Paying for a meal (by cash or through use of a meal plan) entitles the individual to unlimited servings during that meal time. However, food, drinks, etc. cannot be carried out of the dining room (the only exception is an ice cream cone or single piece of fruit).

Throwing food or any other objects in the dining room may result in suspension from the dining room, as well as disciplinary action. The dining room’s silverware, dishes, bowls, glasses, etc. may not be taken from the Commons. This is considered theft.

The Dugout

The Dugout is a grill and snack bar located in the Mann Student Center offering soups, salads, sandwiches, subs, pizza, burgers, hot and cold beverages, and much more. For those on the Meal Plan, Transfer Meals are available at the Dugout from 11:00am to 3:00pm and 5:00pm to 10:00pm on weekdays.

The Dugout offers a limited menu of food, made to order for each customer.In addition to any of the meal plans, students and members of the community who have valid college IDs, can establish a declining balance account via their ENC ID card. These declining balance dollars, called “Cub Cash” can be prepaid at the college cashier’s office and at the Food Service Director’s office in the form of cash or check. Each dollar that is purchased for “Cub Cash” will be credited with a 10% bonus (for example, a $25 purchase earns $27.50 of spending credit). A balance at the end of the fall semester will carry over to the spring semester. However, any dollars left at the end of the academic year will be forfeited. Money for “Cub Cash” can be purchased anytime during the academic year. Cub cash stays on their ID card and can not be refunded.
