You never have to be too shy to ask for seconds with our Campus Dining Program. Our generous policy allows for a second helping of many menu favorites. All you have to do is ask! Please note, however, that there are some exceptions to our Seconds Policy including: You must complete your meal from one particular station before you can revisit that station again.

Lost or Stolen Meal Cards

Lost or stolen meal cards can be replaced. Should this happen to you, go to the Panther Paw office located on the 3rd floor of the Bishop Cornelius Henderson Student Center.
