For the second consecutive year, Rollins Dining Services has achieved the gold standard in dining from the National Association of College & University Food Services.

The National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS) has named Rollins Dining Services as having one of the best special events and catering menus out of hundreds of colleges and universities. NACUFS recognizes members who seek to elevate collegiate dining and transform the campus community experience. In 2021, Rollins received the Residential Dining Facility Award.

Many of the menu items offered for special events are available to students in Skillman Dining Hall throughout the year. Honored guests and students alike can feast on culinary delights like succulent Latin-style roast pork, vegetarian bao buns, homemade meatballs, scratch-made pastries, and more.

“It is with great pride that we accept this honor,” says Dining Services marketing coordinator Carolina Ossa. “We strive to offer innovative menu items and outstanding implementation of programs focused on individual dietary needs, sustainability, and the latest culinary trends. After achieving that with our campus offerings last year, we are pleased to shine in the catering category.”

This award is just the latest in a host of accolades naming Rollins one of the best campus dining destinations in the nation. Previous recognition by Campus Consensus, PETA2, and The Daily Meal have all pointed to Rollins' seven on-campus dining locations as leaders in the industry.

“We are so proud of everything we do daily,” adds Ossa. “We thank the entire campus community for encouraging our team to provide the best service.”
