Welcome to The Hub!
The dining hall of yesteryear has been transformed. The renovation features a serving area with a revamped grill and pizza equipment, a student community table, and a variety of additional modernized and colorful seating arrangements for students, faculty and staff.
An exciting perk of living in the residence halls is having a meal plan. Located on the first floor of the Wallace Residence Center, the The Hub is convenient and full of dietary choices. It features six dining formats including an area where students can avoid seven of the eight major food allergens (gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, shellfish, peanuts and tree nuts). There is also a 360 Mongolian Grill, vegan and vegetarian entrees, pizza, pasta, a hot grill featuring daily specials and a deli. It also features an extensive salad bar. The Hub serves daily eight flavors of ice cream and desserts that are baked in house daily.

First year students living in the residence halls, and all students living in Wallace, Theophilus, and McConnell are required to have a meal plan. Parents can feel confident that their students have access to a variety of nutritious food breakfast, lunch and dinner. Rates per semester.
