Silver Award 2016, Residential Dining Concepts, Pierce Dining Hall

Stevens Institute of Technology will be recognized at the National Association of College & University Food Services (NACUFS) 2017 National Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. The team at Stevens Dining took home two medals in this year’s Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards. This marks the second year in a row Stevens has reached the podium at NACUFS.


Winning the silver award in Residential Dining Concepts, an all-encompassing award, Stevens Dining showed their programs versatility in Menu, Merchandising and Presentation, Marketing, Nutrition and Wellness, and Other Considerations. The team at Stevens created a 64-page magazine, highlighting the program.  This is the second year in a row Stevens was given an award in this category.


Stevens also received the bronze award in the Residential Dining, Special Event category for their event last fall, “San Gennaro on the Point.” A classic Italian Street Festival, San Gennaro has been celebrated in Little Italy for over 90 years. Utilizing the New York City Skyline as a backdrop for the event, Stevens was the perfect location. The event included carnival games, live music and Italian classics such as cannolis and calamari salad to more inclusive options such as vegan, gluten-free “meat” balls.​
