Having trouble selecting a meal plan?

Try considering your daily routine… Do you eat three meals a day? Will your class schedule, studying, extracurricular activities and social events interfere with dining? Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you to select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle. Contact our office to for help selecting a meal plan at (712) 749-2424.

Dining Policies
One of our main goals is to provide a pleasant, clean, comfortable and satisfying dining experience. In order to meet this goal, we ask for your assistance with the following procedures:

  • Please bus your plate and disposables from your table when you have finished dining.
  • Please refrain from taking food, dishes or utensils from the dining area.
  • Remember that your Student ID is non-transferable. Student ID's cannot be used by anyone but the student on that ID.
  • Meals from the Food Court are to be eaten in the Ballroom or the Beaver Den not in the residence halls.
  • To Go Paper bowls & Paper Cup are available for dessert & beverage items only.
  • If a student is dissatisfied with the meal plan he/she has chosen, the plan may be changed to a different plan within the first two weeks of each Semester. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by Student Affairs.
