Dining Services employs a registered and licensed dietitian who assists in preparing and analyzing our menu. All of our menus are analyzed for their nutritional content through a computerized nutritional program. With this program we can assist students with allergies or particular medical needs. Our Mouthful Menu Guide makes it convenient for students to choose vegetarian, vegan, and low- fat menu items.
