Senior Slice

What is Senior Slice? Senior Slice is an event that Dining Services started a few years ago to celebrate the graduating class with their own pizza creations. This event is similar to the Dairy Bar Senior Scoop. Members of the senior class can build and submit their favorite pizza creations from our list of toppings and sauces. The submissions are then narrowed down to 6 finalists (3 vegan pizzas & 3 non-vegan pizzas) by some of our chefs and a member of the senior class. The Senior Class will then vote for which vegan and non-vegan pizzas become the official Senior Slice! The winning pizzas will be served on select dates in some of our dining halls and also at the Union Street Market during the spring semester for everyone to try. Winners receive a party pack to serve their pizza and some sides to friends. Questions? Contact
