New Dining Hall Procedures

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 and new precautions that are taking place, the dining hall has changed their rules to follow the new state-wide guidelines.

  • All meals must be taken to-go. Dining in is not allowed.
  • The dining hall will keep their regular hours of operation. For current hours of operation, see below.
  • C-Store is now located within the dining hall. 
  • The Purple Truck will be making rounds across campus.
  • Chic-fil-a, Dunkin' Donuts, and Starbucks are all closed. 

Transitioning to an Online Course Format

With the transition to all-online classes, many professors are implementing the use of Zoom as a way to continue teaching their classes. Zoom is a video conferencing service that allows you to view your professor's lecture virtually. For more information on Zoom and how it works, please refer to the Zoom webpage.

Canvas will also be used for your online classes. This service allows course materials to be delivered in an online format, including assignments, discussions, exams, videos, and more.

For help with Zoom, Canvas, or other tech issues, please contact the Help Desk through email at or phone at 254-968-9885.
