The Academy believes that sit-down meals provide an important opportunity for enhancing the community. For this reason, family-style meals are served seven times per week. Boarding students attend all sit-down meals. Day students attend all sit-down lunches and are encouraged to stay for the evening meal. A complete list of Dining Hall Meal Times is available.
Students are assigned to a different table every three weeks, which allows them to get better acquainted with different students and faculty members in a relaxed setting. The Dining Hall is full of life, and the students applaud for their favorite meals and break into song on birthdays. Students follow the rules of the Dining Hall–maintaining an environment that is comfortable and engaging for all–and they take turns waiting on tables and performing other kitchen duties.
The Dining Hall offers vegetarian options for every meal, and our Director of Dining Services is available to discuss any specific dietary needs you might have.
Additional services provided by the Dining Hall include: cake and cookie orders, dormitory and exam week feeds, catering for on-campus events, box lunches for athletic teams, and corridor supplies. Forms to request these services can be found on the forms tab of the Daily Bulletin.
