The Howard Diner features "The Perfect Fit" menu designed to allow you the convenience of using one of your meals. Our posted menu will spotlight each of the Perfect Fit menu "combo" options. You simply build your combo from the inside menu components and "pay" with your meal. You only need to reach into your pocket if you put one of the "add ons" on your combo. If you would like to design your own combo by purchasing convenience items or full-size portions of fries and onion rings, use the a la carte menu for pricing. When visiting the Howard Diner please see our posted signs for more information about this exciting option.
Our Dining Hall Meal Exchange program can be used when a student group would like to hold an event which involves a meal service, but very limited additional funding. Essentially, this service provides the food items on the menu in the dining hall for that particular meal, complete with salad, beverage and dessert. The student group membership has the option to use a meal to support the provided service. Contact our catering office for more information about this exciting offer.
Our Catering Exchange program offers student group members the option to use a portion of their meal plan for any type of catering service. The groups dining requirements will be designed with the assistance of the catering staff.
