Welcome Students!


On behalf of the entire Dining Services Team, we would like to thank you for participating in our on-campus dining program. We are excited to introduce you to this year’s repertoire of delicious and crowd-pleasing meal options. These meals include a contemporary selection of many of your favorite foods along with some of our own tasty specialties. This dining guide is designed to act as a quick reference for all of our dining services, so keep it handy throughout the year and enjoy what we have to offer. We look forward to serving you this year.

In addition to the board meals at The Marketplace, Meal Plan Equivalence is available at three of our dining locations. Students can choose any items or select “combo” meals on the menu up to a value of $5.80. This meal then counts as one of the board meals for the week. If the meal exceeds $5.80, the remaining balance will be deducted from the dining dollars portion of the meal plan. Students are asked to inform their server whether they would like to use their dining dollars when placing their order. Meal plan equivalence is available during regular board meal dinner service at Sandella’s, Pandini’s, and Grill 155. Dinner equivalence is from 4:30pm to 7:30pm during the week and 4:30pm to 6:30pm on the weekends. Breakfast equivalence is only available at Sandella’s Monday through Friday from 10:00am to 11:00am.

Will you miss dinner due to employment or evening classes? Anticipating the answers to these and similar questions will help you select a meal plan that best fits your lifestyle.
