Nutrition and Healthy Living

It is often difficult for students to get proper nutrition when facing all of the new responsibilities of college life. Because of the variety of food options available on campus, Dining Services has been very successful in serving the needs of a dining population with diverse tastes. By having a dining plan, you can be certain that you will have access to the resources you need to have a healthy and varied diet. Not only does Dining Services provide you with healthy food choices, but we are also creating a more sustainable Dining program by purchasing food that is locally grown, organic and fair trade.

Value and Affordability

Our dining plans give students healthy options and flexibility along with affordability. Signing up for a dining plan will save you money because you receive extra value when you use the meal passes to purchase meals. By purchasing a dining plan, students and parents can also guarantee that the student will have money specifically budgeted for food.

Convenience and Community

Our dining locations are located right where our students live, study, work and hang out with friends. They also have very flexible hours so that even if you are awake early in the morning or late at night, you will have options open around campus. Our dining locations make sure that students can get a great tasting, healthy meal without the hassle of preparation or clean-up.
