Nutrition

University Dining focuses on balance and variety in dining choices.
In this Section

University Dining is committed to providing all students access to balanced choices in our dining locations. Our nutrition goals are to empower students to develop a balanced eating pattern, to promote positive lifestyle choices, and to foster a proactive approach to their health through their food and beverage choices. We support our students and guests in making informed choices by providing nutrition facts panels with ingredients and allergen information online, nutrition counseling from our full time registered dietitian, and a variety of educational resources throughout our locations.
