There are three dining options for students, all located in the Roy L. Smith Student Center.

The Dining Hall

There are three meal plan options for students—10 meals a week, 14 meals a week, and 17 meals a week.  Students use their meal credits in the cafeteria.  Meal credits do roll over from week to week, but they do not roll over each semester.

The food options include a hot line, sandwiches, grilled items, daily specials, pizza, and a large salad bar.  There is no limit as to how much students are allowed to eat during each session.  Students can also order “to go” meals.

Breakfast 7:15 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.
Lunch  11:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.
Dinner  5:15 p.m. –  7 p.m.

Java Jinx Snack Bar

This option provides students with grilled items later in the evening.  The Java Jinx also sells bottled beverages, coffee, snacks, and fountain drinks.  Students use their flex dollars that are included in the meal plan.  Flex dollars are equivalent to real money.  Flex dollars also roll over if not used from the fall to the spring semester.

Students initially start out with these amounts, but more can be added throughout the year:

  • 10 meal plans= $50 flex dollars
  • 14 meal plans= $75 flex dollars
  • 17 meal plans= 1 flex dollars

Monday - Friday: 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
