Dining Center

The Dining Center is a buffet-style establishment that provides a wide selection of meal options including: a made-to-order grill, rotisserie station, a main buffet line with daily features, a salad bar, cereal bar, sandwich bar, pizza and soup stations, and multiple beverage dispensers. The predominant meal plan available to students grants continuous and unlimited daily access to the Dining Center.  Students have access to the Dining Center through a variety of meal plan options, and guests can simply pay at the door.

Most seating is available in the Great Room, which boasts large windows with a view of the campus, and a friendly atmosphere. A private dining room is available for meetings of up to 25 people. When the weather is pleasant, many students choose to eat at the outdoor tables. Take-out options are also available.
