Director of Culinary Services


Dining Services is pleased to welcome Ron Moore back to Dartmouth as our Director of Culinary Services. Ron had previously worked for the College from 1979 to 2000 until he moved to Chicago, Illinois.  While in Chicago Ron worked for Wholefoods as their Culinary Specialist. As Culinary Specialist he developed staff training and taught cooking classes for customers. Ron plans to bring many of those training techniques here to Dartmouth. In his spare time Ron enjoys painting and sculpting. On occasion you will find that he has hand sculpted a food display for a special event in '53 Commons. On August 13th Ron worked with the Wellness Office to offer a Basic Knife Skills class. The goal is to have more of these session to teach students, staff, and faculty more about food.

Fall Term Dining

Orientation Dining Plans for first time Dartmouth students is available starting Tuesday, September 2nd.

Fall Term Dining Plans begin on Saturday, September 13th.  If you would like to request to change your dining plan for fall term, please do so online or by visiting the Dartmouth Card Office by 4:00 PM Monday, September 8th.  Changes made between 4 pm on September 8th and 4 pm on Wednesday, September 17th will be processed in the order in which they are received.  Billing may be prorated according to the amount of time spent on each dining plan.  No dining plan changes will be accepted after 4 pm on Wednesday, September 17th.

Introducing DBA Rollover

Starting with Summer Term 2014, up to 100 dollars of DBA can rollover to the next term within the same academic year.  DBA carried forward from a previous term will be available during subsequent academic terms as an addition to the meal plan.  Any amount of DBA carried forward will not alter any meal plan pricing or requirements.  Any unspent DBA will expire with the end of spring term meal plans on Commencement Sunday.

DBA Rollover & Leave Terms: Any DBA rolled over from the previous term will be available anytime meal plans are active, including during a leave term.  Unused DBA from a leave term will continue to roll forward until the end of the academic year.  All unused DBA expires on Commencement Sunday regardless of spring term enrollment.

For example:  a student has $105 in DBA left at the end of summer term.  $100 would rollover and be added to the DBA included with the fall term dining plan.  The same student then ends fall term with $75 in DBA and is not taking classes or living on campus during winter term.  This student would have $75 of DBA available during the leave term for visits to campus.  If the student does not use any of the $75 during the winter term, that $75 would again rollover to the spring term meal plan.  If that student had any DBA left at the end of spring term, it would expire on Commencement Sunday.
