Catering

Principia College Dining Services is happy to provide a catering service to the College community. We define catering as any food needs that cannot be accomodate by the Scramble Room, Faculty/Staff Dining Room, or the Piasa Pub.

We are ready and willing to make your catered event the best it can be.

This site is meant to help guide and give suggestions, and to be used as a tool to help create the type of occasion you wish to host.

Please bookmark this site and use it as your need arises.

All catering order requests must be submitted no later than two weeks prior to your event and finalized no later than one week before that date. Requests received in less than this timeframe might not be accepted.

Dining Services will negotiate the prices based on adjusted menus.
