We love to offer students unique dining experiences.

Not only does it give students more options to mix-up their daily meal routine, it’s also a ton of fun for us to put together! Here are just a few examples of special events that we have organized on campus:

Alamance Restaurant Takeovers

We love to welcome local businesses into our dining halls so that students can experience great food that is right in their backyard. So far we have hosted two such restaurants, Taaza Indian Bistro and Bowl & Naan, and we hope to host more in the near future!

We had an absolute blast today with Taaza Bistro! Make sure you visit them in Burlington! They accept Phoenix Cash!!! Tell us what you thought about today's Alamance Restaurant Takeover! We would like to bring in more local restaurants for more takeovers, and we would love to hear which ones you would like to see!

Food Truck Wednesday

Every Wednesday during the 2017-2018 school year we have been holding Food Truck Wednesday in the HBB Lot. Two different local food trucks visit for a few hours around lunch time, and students can use their meal plans to enjoy some delicious food that is not normally offered on campus!

Special Meals

We love organizing occasional special meals for our students. Recently, we held a Steak and Lobster Dinner in our Clohan Hall. All students that came to Clohan that evening were treated to a candlelight dinner featuring a delicious steak and lobster entree!

International Week

Each week at Lakeside Dining Hall our team features the cuisine of a different region in the world. A special, five day menu featuring entrees, soups, sides, and desserts is crafted each week. Not only does this give Elon students even more dining options each week, it also creates a unique educational opportunity at Lakeside.


We hold occasional impromptu pop-ups around campus as a surprise for students! Students are alerted the day of the pop-up. Recently Mill Point Catering set up this awesome lemonade pop-up featuring tasty cupcakes and French macarons, and we have more planned for the future!
