Students in line at Chick-fil-A


SUU Dining Services will accommodate the needs of summer enrollment. As the number of students on campus each summer grows, operating hours and options will also increase. In the initial year of operation, Chick-Fil-A and Outtakes will be open as they currently are during summers (Chick-Fil-A: 11am-2pm, Outtakes: 9am-12pm).

Most academic resources available during the fall and spring semesters will also be available during the summer semester, including the Tutoring Center, Library, PE building, and Counseling and Psychological Services. If you have questions about a specific office or resource, email
