WWpicnic2Food should never be boring, and from time to time, we like to mix things up with special dining events.

Ball State values diversity, and to honor the different cultures on campus, we often serve special meals for cultural holidays. For instance, some of our dining locations have special Martin Luther King, Jr. Day menus prepared by our chefs. We also offer special meals for special religious observances such as Passover and Lent.

The Amazing Taste, a nationally recognized event held each fall, celebrates the diversity of our student body with cuisine from 20+ countries, student-led cultural activities, dancing, live music, and much more.

Family Weekend is another big time for the Ball State community. Not only do you get to show your family around our campus, but they also get to partake in the amazing food you’ve told them about. Dining hosts at least one special meal during Family Weekend, and students with meal plans receive two complimentary guest passes for family or other guests.
