Auxiliary Campus Enterprises and Services (ACES) is a not-for-profit corporation responsible for many services on campus. A board of directors consisting of faculty, students, and administrators governs activities of the corporation. ACES manages campus food service, special events and catering, snack bars, campus stores, food/beverage and laundry vending services, Lake Lodge, cable TV services, transportation services, and accounting and bookkeeping services.
Students living in residence halls are required to have a meal plan. Students living in the Townhouses or a MacKenzie apartment have the option to waive that requirement. Individuals may elect a program based on their specific needs from a variety of meal plan options as described in promotional material appearing on college websites and the student billing. Participants are allowed considerable flexibility, as they may eat at either dining hall, the food truck, or any other retail dining location by using a meal swipe, dining dollars, or campus spending account funds. All accounts are maintained and managed by ACES through their student campus ID.
