On the Lite Side
We realize that today's students care about what they eat and are more informed on nutrition than ever before. That's why we provide nutritional information so that students can make healthy choices. We accommodate different kinds of diets such as low fat and vegetarian, as well as special dietary needs. We make eating healthy easy with choices that not only taste good, but are good for you too!
New this fall at Fitzgerald Dining Center Simple Servings will offer appetizing food choices "ready to go" for our customers with food allergies, gluten intolerance, or those who prefer plain simple food.
A la Carte
One of the many highlights of the Elliott Student Union is the wide array of retail dining outlets. Start your day off with a delicious coffee, cappuccino, or latte and a pastry from Jazzman's Café. In the Central Courte you'll find all your favorites ranging from fast food to international cuisine at Pizza Hut®, Taco Bell®, Burger King®, Sub-Connection®, and Southern Tsunami®. Or enjoy a great chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A® and if you don't have time to go to the store visit the Smart Market™ to pick up that last minute item, both located in the Union Bowling Center. For a fresh baked bagel and Darn Good Coffee® visit Einstein Bros. Bagels® located in the James C. Kirkpatrick Library and the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.
All Second Year students must choose one of the following meal plans:
