NDSU Dining can meet all your conference dining needs from an economical and healthy dining center meal to an elegant catered meal.
As the summer dining center, the West Dining Center (WDC or the "W") serves thousands of visitors in many different conferences. There’s something available for everyone on the WDC summer menu.
WDC meals are scheduled upon request for summer conference groups; when meals are being served other guests, students, faculty and staff are welcome to join our conference guests. Specific summer meal hours are limited and are posted at the entrance. All meals are served buffet style with cereal, toast and beverages available at every meal. At lunch and dinner meals, a salad bar, two soups and a sandwich bar are also available. A vegetarian entrée is available at lunch and dinner.
The WDC summer menu is posted 10 days in advance.
The Dining staff can turn your meal into a memorable experience. Catered meals can be served in the Memorial Union meeting rooms so that you can find just the right size area for your event. Banquets up to 425 guests are served in the stately atmosphere of the Memorial Union Great Plains Ballroom. As the exclusive provider of food to the NDSU campus, catering is available for any occasion, location or budget. Served meals, picnics, box lunches or snacks are just some of the options available. Visit the NDSU Dining - Catering webpage for the full catering menu.
