Weekend Menus

Dining Services is looking forward to providing a dining experience in the spirit of Commencement Weekend—celebratory and exciting! To ensure a well-planned weekend, we need to know the number of meals you would like us to provide.

Be sure to order your meal tickets online through the Alumnae Association website and (if paying by check, be sure to get payment to us by the date indicated on the meal tickets webpage). All guests will need to present a ticket for all meals provided for the weekend (except our graduates, their meals are included).

If you are planning to dine off-campus during the weekend, we encourage you to do so on Friday evening. On Saturday evening, there may not be enough time to dine away from the College and return in time for the Baccalaureate Service. The Saturday Baccalaureate Buffet Dinner is a special time for seniors, their families, and guests to join "the stars" under a tent on Skinner Green. After Commencement exercises on Sunday, there will be a complimentary celebratory reception.

All Commencement Weekend meals for seniors are included in their board plan, so please do not include them in your ticket order.
