Food from home: DINING ON CAMPUS

The change in food options can both be an exciting adventure and a disappointment when a student just wants food that they grew up with.  The Dining Services staff wants to support you.  If you have ideas on how we could integrate staple foods, sauces or condiments, please let them know.

Dining services works to provide healthy options.  Several years ago there were two items that were integrated into the menu from feedback provided by the students:

    • Congee during breakfast
    • A Wok station with fresh vegetables, rice, noodles, and protein options

Dining Services and Housing & Residential Education are here to support you and are glad that you chose to come to the U!
