Director of Residential Dining, Greg Crawford, wanted to make sure we did something fun during finals week to reward the hard work students put in during finals week saying, “We will have lots of great food options as well as some surprises to keep you going through finals week.  We hope to see you at one of our locations and wish all students the best of luck with finals!” Despite schedule changes as a result of Hurricane Irma, Eagle Dining Services decided to amend their usual finals week offering to accommodate the school schedule.

The cost for Eaglexpress will be $8.75 and for those paying with cash, credit/debit cards, the cost will be $8.75 plus tax. Be sure to bring your books, your friends, and your appetites!
