Eating on campus is about more than just great food. Meal times are the time to relax, refuel, hang-out with friends, have fun, or make new friends. You will always be able to eat what you want, when you want, how you want! In addition to the large variety of food to select from, if you don’t have time to sit down and eat, you can always get your meal to go, some restrictions apply on to go meals.
