Campus spot gets fresh look, new meal-plan policy

The Devil’s Den has a fresh look and new offerings for the 2023-24 academic year—and a more flexible meal-plan policy to boot.

In the past, the Devil’s Den was a quick stop in the HUB’s lower level, providing snacks, drinks and basic necessities. Today, it stocks fresh produce, breads, dairy, eggs, meat and flour and other new pantry staples, along with many old favorites. There’s also a greater variety of grab-and-go meal options, including salads and meal kits. Refreshed paint and lighting complement the new Devil’s Den and create a more welcoming and modern vibe.

Best of all, students with Flex Plan meal cards may now use the entirety of their meal plans on Devil’s Den groceries, if they wish. (Dining Dollars, Devil Dollars, declining balance, and credit/debit cards are also still accepted here, along with personal declining-balance accounts) “That’s the big news,” says Errol Huffman, director of Dining Services. “We’re excited to offer students even more flexibility and choice.”

The new and improved Devil’s Den is only part of a robust suite of dining options for Dickinson students:

  • The Dining Hall (aka “Caf”), with myriad options, including the KOVE (kosher and vegan), homemade soups, a fresh-fruit "island," a Tex-Mex station, Today's Catch (seafood), a hot-entree serving line and a wide variety of plant-based proteins.
  • The Union Station snack bar and grill (or Snar) offers sushi, salads, sandwiches, daily specials and assorted grab-and-go items from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • The Juice Bar sells organic, fair-trade coffees and teas; organic fresh fruit and made-to-order smoothies and vegetable juice. There’s also grab-and-go sushi.
  • Denim Coffee brews up fresh-roasted coffee, fresh-brewed tea and other artisanal drinks, plus pastries and breakfast sandwiches.
  • Farm Works brings freshly prepared College Farm soups and salads, sustainable goods, produce and artisanal products to 169 High Street, just one block off campus (Flex and Any 21 meal plans accepted).
  • Devil’s Den, now with fresh groceries, and open 1-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday, during the academic year.
