Now that flu season is upon us, if you become ill and cannot make it to a dining unit for a meal, you may call the dining facility you normally eat in, ask for the manager on duty and request a meal “to go.” Please provide the manager with your PeopleSoft number as well as the name of the individual who will be picking up your meal. When the designated person picks up the meal for you, they may swipe in their own card, swipe in the requesting student’s card and contact the unit manager to assist with the take-out.
