Published May 28, 2015

Campus Dining and Shops (CDS) received gold and silver awards in the 2015 Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards sponsored by the National College and University Food Service Association (NACUFS).

CDS won a gold award in the “Catering — Online Menu” category for Three Pillars Catering’s new website, launched in February.

The silver award, given in the “Residential Dining — Special Event” category, recognizes “The Hunger Games” theme dinner hosted at Crossroads Culinary Center (C3) in April. The event, which competed against 28 large schools in the category, garnered both local and national media attention for its unique food offerings and visual presentation.

CDS also won a gold Horton award in 2013 in the “Residential Dining Concepts” category for C3.

The Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards, named for the NACUFS founder and past president, are the ultimate tribute in the campus food service industry. They recognize exemplary menus, presentations, special event planning, and new dining concepts, and provide an avenue for sharing ideas and creative presentations in campus dining services.
