Food Security

Difficulty accessing enough nutritious food is a common experience in college. That is why we have numerous on- and off-campus resources that are available to help. 

Dining on Campus

Just because you no longer live on campus doesn't mean you can't eat on campus! In addition to multiple retail dining options, there are are two dining commons - Miller Dining Commons and Rendezvous Dining Pavilion - that feature their own unique atmosphere and different daily menus. Commuter Meal Plans are available.

Nutrition Services 

The Office of Health Advancement provides nutrition services for all students taking seven or more credits. Individual services can be provided with a registered dietitian and licensed nutritionist. If you are taking less than seven credits and choose to pay the Student Health Service fee for the semester, nutrition services may be utilized as well.

Services include:

  • Helping students to plan simple, economical meals.
  • Helping a person learn to live with food allergies, intolerances, or special dietary needs.
  • Helping sort out basic nutrition facts.
  • Helping persons who want to lose body weight or achieve fitness.
  • Helping persons who have an eating disorder.
  • Helping student groups by providing relevant presentations or materials.
  • Helping athletes and active adults with nutrition-related topics and meal planning for competition.
  • Helping with specific health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
  • Helping with gut issues or other medical concerns. 
  • Promoting general well-being and how to move toward food and activity choices that support a thriving lifestyle.
