We also encourage you to visit our cafeteria while you are here! Mr. Rob Devore goes above and beyond to provide a wide variety of meal choices for the MLS students. Lunch is served from 11:24 am to 12:41 pm on Friday. We do not serve breakfast on Saturdays instead there is a brunch on from 10:30-11:30 am.  The cafeteria staff has asked that you let us know if you plan to eat in the cafeteria.  They will need to have more food prepared ahead of time.

All housing or meal requests should also be sent to tournament director Prof Eric Scheuerlein, eas@mlsem.org.
