Implemented in September 2015, the Tapas concept is operated on an a la carte basis at a single station during the dinner meal period.

Dining staff and management team members have the liberty to complement the standard Tapas offerings with their own items that accord with a $3.59 to $5.95 price point.
The station is slightly tucked away inside the dining hall and can easily be missed by busy students, so a cook is placed behind the serving station to talk directly with students and hand out samples.

The bite-sized tapas menus not only take advantage of the ethnic food trend but also provide a vehicle for creating menu items that utilize quality and unique ingredients like steamed mussels and calamari.
