Why a Meal Plan?

Most students spend their days on campus rushing from class to class.  Leaving campus to eat is time-consuming and expensive.  Our operations are conveniently located throughout the campus, saving you time and money.  Eight dining facilities (including The Upper Deck at Gordinier Hall, North Side Bistro at Lyle Hall, the Galley and Juice Bar at the Student Memorial Center, The Anchor (including Starbucks and Turkey Hill Creamery), The Cove, Cyber Cafe, and Campus Grill, a choice of eight meal plans and additional flexible dollars provide many alternatives for students to determine the right plan to meet their academic schedule.  With emphasis on variety, meals are nutritious and tastefully prepared.  A wide range of service hours are offered in up-to-date and easily accessible dining facilities. If you choose not to eat a meal in either dining hall, meal allowance may be used at The Galley, The Cove, The Anchor or Cyber Cafe for a cash value.
