Campus Club Partnering with The Good Acre

The Campus Club is going to be buying from The Good Acre this growing season. The Good Acre partners with local farms to bring sustainably raised produce to the Twin Cities. We are proud to support the mission of The Good Acre, which is "to enhance how food is grown and shared in the Twin Cities region, to improve marketpl
ace opportunities for diverse independent farmers, and to increase access for all consumers to healthy, locally-grown fresh produce." More information about The Good Acre is here.

Watch this page for updates on Campus Club cooking classes at The Good Acre in the future.

Please Use Guest Cards in the Servery

We wanted to remind those of you who host (and plan) lunches here at the Campus Club that each guest who goes through the Servery at lunch time needs to have their own Guest Card. Each guest should present their Guest Card to the cashier as they exit the Servery. That way our cashier knows how to charge each meal.

We prefer you not tell people to "stick together" and share one card. This can get confusing for our cashiers. It can also be awkward for your guests, especially if it's a busy day.

There are two kinds of Guest Cards: one for Department memberships and one for personal memberships. They have slightly different information but work the same way! Let us know if you have questions about that.

When you book a room through the Events Department or a table through our front desk, we will ask if you need Guest Cards. The answer is "Yes" unless you have a set of your own to use.
