This article focuses on the to-go program of Tufts University. This program is part of the university's Dining Services program. At Tufts University, the idea of take-away has almost become an art form, since the opening of Hodgdon Good-To-Go in 2007. Located in 53-year-old Hodgdon Hall, Good-To-Go was the major part of a $3.15-million renovation that included a kitchen upgrade that supports the $1.8-million catering business of the university.
