Duke Dining Adds Meals to Dining Plans

Dear Class 2021,

I hope you are having a great start to your fall semester!

Duke Dining has reviewed first year students’ dining patterns and preferences and will increase access to meals as an enhancement to the current East Campus dining model.

As of Monday, September 11 both Plans H and I will provide nine Dinner/Brunch meals at the Marketplace in place of the seven meals previously available to you. There will be no additional cost for these extra meals.


Fall Festival at the Marketplace

Prizes, funnel cakes and fried candy bars?! That only begins to describe the Fall Festival themed dinner at the Marketplace held on Wednesday, October 21st. Students also enjoyed cotton candy, turkey legs, corn dogs, philly cheese steak subs, popcorn, and other festival fare! They could spin the prize wheel for a multitude of fun prizes to include, mesh chairs, t-shirts, frisbees, pens, coffee mugs, keychains, hats, koozies, food freebies and discounts-there was even a balloon guy there to make balloon animals and items per students' request!
