Open seven days a week, the Dining Hall is an all-you-care-to-eat cafeteria-style facility. A 30-item salad bar, deli bar, two made-from-scratch soup offerings and three separate entrées for lunch and dinner ensure there's something for everyone. Vegetarian, vegan, organic non-gmo cereal, gluten-free and kosher entrées also are available. All meal plans are accepted at all times.
