The dining hall, formerly known as Bob’s, is receiving a major face-lift.

The transformation of the dining hall will include new flooring, more modernized and colorful seating arrangements, a student community table, and a variety of seating options for students, faculty, and staff to choose from. The serving area will have a re-vamped grill and pizza area with all new equipment and a stone-baked pizza oven.

Students voted for a new name for Bob's earlier this year. Vandals Dining will reveal the new name this summer. To watch the dining hall renovation and other exciting changes throughout the summer, follow @VandalsDining on Instagram.

Regardless of the name, an exciting perk about living in the residence halls is having a meal plan. Located on the first floor of the Wallace Residence Center, the dining hall is convenient and full of dietary options. It features six dining formats including Simple Servings, where students can avoid 7 of the 8 major food allergens (gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, shellfish, peanuts and tree nuts), 360 Mongolian Grill, Vegan & Vegetarian entrees, pizza/pasta, hot grill featuring daily specials and deli.  It also features  an extensive salad bar and desserts that are baked in house daily.
