Fall 2020 Program Changes

Working to “Do Right” and Keep Eagle Nation Healthy

Eagle Dining Services is committed to providing those we serve with excellent food and exceptional customer service, while providing a sense of community for all.

During these unprecedented times, our main goals to serve the Georgia Southern community are:

  • Maintain the safety of our patrons and many members of the university community.
  • Offering the same level of exceptional customer service and quality meals to whoever enters our facilities.

And, as always, our main goals of continually improving our dining operations and program, committing ourselves to engage with our community on- and off-campus, as well as connecting with our customers are still paramount.

Here’s what you can expect this fall:
