Student Involvement

Events Advisory Team (EAT)

The Events Advisory Team programming committee works with our dining staff to bring events to life in the dining facilities. Our events follow the Blue Jay community development and programming models helping fellow Blue Jays develop a sense of unity and camaraderie among active, passive and co-sponsored programs. These programs and events look at different areas of development and learning outside of the classroom through social, educational, community building and fun engagement activities.

Events throughout the year include but are not limited to:

  • National Food Holidays
  • Dining Cooking Series
  • Fresh Food Cafe Cultural Nights

We love working with our fellow Blue Jays, if you are interested in joining our committee to plan events,  reach out to us through email at or by texting us at 410-941-2272.

Student Group Partnership

We love to partner with Blue Jay organizations on-campus, whether it is a themed night in the Fresh Food Cafe or Nolan’s or additional items needed for an on-campus event.

Table Talkers

Student groups can advertise events and meetings right in our dining facilities. Advertise on the tables with our easy-to-make table talkers. See the table talker example. Table Talkers Reservation Forms need to be approved in order to advertise through Table Talkers in the Dining facilities.

Beverage Cambro Rentals

Whether you are using hot or cold beverages, our cambros are great for your event or fundraiser. These are offered on a first come, first serve basis by reservations in advance only. We require groups to pick-up and return these during our office hours Monday-Friday 8:30AM-5PM and the units need to be cleaned prior to being returned. Failure to bring these back timely or clean will result in the loss of future rental privileges. Please reach out to us for availability and reservations by email at

Pepsi Beverage Donations
