Are you on the Everyday App yet?

Our mobile ordering app Everyday, will allow you to view our menus and order ahead to skip the lines at participating on-campus dining locations. Mobile ordering will be available at certain stations in the Food Court and Beacon Cafe, Dunkin, ISC Cafe and our new virtual brands.

Virtual Dining Brands

We are thrilled to bring back the Virtual Dining Brands through the Everyday App! These brands have been trending on social media and utilize a “ghost kitchen” to produce food for pickup. This allows us to increase the variety we offer without having to renovate an existing space. Here are the brands we will be working with:

Food Court:

  • Buddy V's Cake Slices
  • Mariah's Cookies

Late Night Bites Dining Commons:

  • Mr. Beast Burger
  • Nascar Wings

Remember, these brands are only available through the Everyday App!
