The men of Lambda Chi Alpha at Iowa State University enjoy a comprehensive meal program as part of our room and board for members.
Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity in Ames is fortunate to have a culinary school trained chef. Chef Connie Maxwell’s philosophy is noted on the bumper sticker pasted to her cooler in the kitchen: “Love People, cook them tasty food.“
Meals are prepared as much from scratch as possible and served buffet style, allowing the members to choose their own entrees and side dishes as well as salads from the daily salad bar. Lunch and Dinner are served Monday through Thursday with Lunch only on Friday, Chef Connie lives at the house during the week and provides hot breakfast upon request. Formal meals are served on Monday evenings complete with dining etiquette instructions and three full courses.
Guests and VIP speakers from the community are regular attendees on Monday nights and the house members benefit from meeting these community leaders. Chef Connie also does outdoor bar-b-ques in the fall and spring as well as a third meal (midnight meal) during Dead Week and Finals Week each semester.
