Your Panther Student ID Card will hold the balances of the DINE, FLEX and SHOP accounts and will be validated by Dining Services at the beginning of each term. 

DINE Account - If you're living on campus, you are required to participate in one of our flexible meal plans.  Meals not consumed in a given semester will not be carried forward to the next semester; they will be forfeited.

FLEX Account  - You can purchase FLEX dollars with a meal plan to be used only for food items in the KOA Dining Hall, Vending Machines, Panther Shop, Intermetzo Cafe and/or Commons Café.  FLEX dollars not used in a given semester will not be carried forward to the next semester; they will be forfeited.

SHOP Account - This is a debit account available to all students and may be used in the Dining Room, the Intermetzo Cafe, the Commons Cafe, the CALCS, the Panther Shop, in vending machines, and in the campus laundry.  You simply put money on your Panther ID Card.  Applications/instructions for this account are available in the Dining Services Office, the Panther Shop, and the Enrollment Services Office.

Food Committee  - This is your liaison with Dining Services. On a regular basis, Dining Services sponsors theme dinners and specials. Your involvement helps create a more successful event. Please feel free to stop by and talk to our Dining Services director about how you can be part of the planning.

After long weekends and/or holidays, the dining hall will re-open with brunch the day before classes resume. 

Need Something Special? - If you need a special meal or are on a restricted diet, just let our Dining Services director know. We will be more than happy to comply with a written doctor's request. Pizza delivery service, campus greetings and student catering brochures are a few of the amenities that we provide to you.

Satisfaction Guaranteed -  Let us know your comments or questions by contacting our office at 814-362-5054 or visit the "Feed Us Your Thoughts" comment board located in the dining hall, Commons Cafe and Intermetzo Cafe.
