Campus Dining Service Update – September 11, 2020

Posted by on Friday, September 11, 2020 in Uncategorized.

To our Vanderbilt Students,

Fall 2020 is a semester unlike any other at Vanderbilt, and it’s clear that students, faculty, and staff are Anchoring Down and Stepping Up to the challenge.  In that same spirit of innovation and collaboration, the culinary team at Campus Dining continues to expand its services, refine menu offerings, and deliver a high-quality experience despite the circumstances.  This week, we’re proud to share some notable highlights:

Local Java

In addition to locally-roasted Frothy Monkey drip coffee, cold brew is now an option for meal swipe beverages.

Food Trucks on Campus

Available weekdays for lunch between Buttrick and the Bishop Johnson Black Cultural Center, serving up Music City’s finest street food.  In addition, we’re also featuring food trucks at the Blair School of Music on select weekdays.  Lineup and menus can be found here, and daily schedules are posted to Instagram.  Commodore Cash and Meal Money accepted.

PickupSpot Updates

Based on your feedback, we have moved the University Club PickupSpot to the Blair School of Music.  This location is available for lunch Monday-Friday; orders can be placed in advance using the GET app.

Apple Wallet Meal ‘Tap’

Earlier this week, Campus Dining and Vanderbilt Card Services launched Apple Wallet integration with your Commodore Card.  With this functionality, students, faculty, and staff can now use their iPhone and Apple Watch to access buildings on campus, purchase meals, and more.

Rand Express Launching

Starting Monday, September 14, students will have another quick meal option at Rand Dining Center, aptly named Rand Express.  Featuring a rotation of well-loved menu items like Pho, Burritos, and Tortellini Tuesday, Rand Express is a fully-customizable meal option, and is available only for pre-order on the GET app.  Rand Express meals will be available for dinner, Sunday through Thursday, for the duration of the fall semester.

Munchie Meal Updates

We heard your feedback, and are pleased to deliver more options for your Munchie Mart meal swipes!  Starting Monday, September 14, you can now add two healthy sides to your Munchie Mart entrees, selecting from options like:

  • Yoplait Yogurt (Lite Strawberry, Strawberry/Banana, and French Vanilla)
  • Silk Almond Yogurt (Dairy-Free)
  • Enjoy Life bars (Allergen Friendly & Vegan)
  • No Cow Protein Bars (Vegan)
  • Hard Boiled Eggs (coming soon)
  • Whole Fruit (Apple, Orange, Avocado, or Banana)
  • Cold Beverages, including Peet’s Nitro or Cold Brew (coming soon)

Note that beverages are now considered a side, so any two of the above items can be selected with an entrée.

Campus Dining is proud to nourish the academic spirit here at Vanderbilt, and to provide healthy and delicious meal options for our students.  We hope you enjoy these changes, as we continue to refine and further improve our award-winning dining program.  Stay well!
