#PSUDining Wants To Engage With You

Penn State Campus Residential Dining not only wants you to go to them for your on-campus meal needs but they also want you to connect with them on social media!

@Pennstatedining is on Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat and utilizes all three platforms to give its followers behind the scenes footage, trivia, contests, giveaways, and much more. Some examples of prizes from their giveaways include: two tickets to each home football game, free meal cards, t-shirts and notebooks. Contest vary from captioning a picture on Instagram to drawing a doodle on Snapchat.

Throughout the Fall 2016 semester, Penn State Campus Residential Dining had two special dinners including a Farmer’s Market themed dinner and a Italian Holiday themed dinner. Through their social media outlets, they informed the students about the menu options and the free swag at the event. Also, students got the chance to learn how to make the special dinner items from their step-by-step recipe videos on social media.

When students return back from winter break, Penn State Campus Residential Dining will have a Snapchat table with spin-the-wheel giveaways, Snapchat t-shirts, and cookies. This will be held at Pollock dining commons on Thursday, January 12 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. We hope to see you there!

Penn State Campus Residential Dining strives to be more than your ordinary campus dining facility. It is committed to engaging with students and providing them with a “home away from home” dining experience.
