WKU Student-Led Dining Experience

Due to the COVID Pandemic, the WKU Student-Led Dining Experience will not be available in Fall 2020. 


The Food Service Operations Management (formerly catering) class in the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management program will be preparing and serving luncheons, restaurant-style, for faculty and staff . The students in the class write their own menus, select recipes, prepare the foods, as well as manage and direct the entire operation of the event as part of the requirements for this capstone course. Please scroll down to see the menus below.

The Thursday luncheons will be a full service meal with an appetizer, soup or salad, meat, starch, vegetable, dinner roll, dessert and beverages [coffee or iced tea]. The price will range from $12.00 to $13.00 depending on the menu - tipping is not accepted since this is a laboratory course for college credit. The dinners will be served in the Micatrotto Family Dining Room, Academic Complex Room 213 (AC-213) - you are welcome to arrive anytime between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Seating will be limited to the first 50 people for each luncheon. Due to the required evaluation of the meals, the cost of containers, and the impact "take out" containers have on the environment, we do not have the capability to accommodate "to go" or take-out meals.


Interested faculty and staff must purchase a ticket in advance. Tickets will be sold in the Department of Applied Human Sciences (AHS) office (AC-302F) during normal business hours (8:00 am to 4:30 pm) beginning on the Thursday the week before the meal. Unfortunately, we cannot accept credit cards, so please bring cash or check to pay for the tickets. Please note that calling the FACS office does not constitute a reservation or reserve a ticket for you, as tickets cannot be "held" for anyone. We encourage you to purchase tickets as a group or table; one person can purchase the tickets for a group, but someone must physically come to the office to purchase the tickets. Tickets generally sell out rather quickly, so be sure to purchase your tickets early. Tickets are not refundable, and cannot be transferred to a different meal, but you can give them to another person who can happily eat in your place.
