Unlike typical college meal programs, our Dining Around the World student meal program takes dining to new heights.

Our chef instructors know how important it is to keep students inspired even outside of the classroom, so they design an eclectic set of menus for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that changes on a regular basis. Dining Around the World is available to students Monday through Saturday and is available to both Residential Learning students and commuter students.



You can start your day with a light continental breakfast that has a notably European flair, indulging in a chocolate croissant and latte. Yearning for a heartier American breakfast? Select from omelettes, French toast, and more. And of course, there are fresh juices, smoothies, danishes, and muffins, as well as a variety of teas and great coffee.


The Courtyard is the gathering place for a casual lunch. Mingle with friends and classmates as you enjoy made-to-order pasta prepared in our European marketplace setting. The menu features a selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas, quiche, pizza, and light entrées. For dessert, you will find great temptation in our display case filled with delicious pastries. There is also a full selection of soft drinks, teas, and flavored coffees.


Featured dishes range from classic French cuisine to Asian and Mediterranean specialties to favorite American stand-bys. Some nights, you will enjoy traditional Southern cooking with fried chicken, biscuits, and crisp, fresh vegetables. Other nights, there will be great pastas such as classic spaghetti bolognese, linguine with clam sauce, and fettuccine alfredo. You will also love our “Blue Plate” specials: meatloaf with mashed potatoes, roast turkey with stuffing, and roast chicken with buttered noodles. International surprises include spicy kung pao chicken, shepherd’s pie, Middle Eastern shish kebabs, and Mexican fajitas. Casual dining events include “Make Your Own Pizza,” where you can top fresh-baked pizza with your choice of specialties. Finish off your meal with a fabulous dessert from our Pastry Shop.
