Just a few of our specialties

University Gatherings

From orientation breakfasts to graduation parties to retirement dinners, it’s what gets us up in the morning.

Corporate Events

Just because it’s a professional function doesn’t mean the atmosphere can’t be relaxed and the menu mouth-watering.

The Florence & Chafetz Hillel House is the premier event space on campus for any kosher event, from a catered lunch or reception to a wedding or Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Graduation Festivities

One of the things we do best. Naturally.

Social Events

Birthdays, anniversaries, or thanking the crew for a job well done, we’ll help craft the perfect menu within any budget.


Need to go big? Like red-carpet big? We’ll handle it, no matter the size and formality you need.


  • Beginning in January 2015 to help with our local footprint and curb waste, any events held in the George Sherman Union that requires Milk will have it served in pourers/carafes not the individual packets. If you have any questions please feel free to speak with our Catering representatives and they would be happy to go over this new policy. This is for George Sherman Union events only.
