Dining Options

We asked what you wanted from campus dining. Now you have it!


It's a great day of firsts! First day of classes, first chance to check out the new Spellmann Center Dining Hall, and President Shonrock's ceremonial "first bite" of Chick-fil-A on campus.

NEW! Dining Dollars

Perfect for the new convenience store, Dining Dollars are accepted at all dining locations throughout the campus. Similar to Lion Dollars, Dining Dollars can be managed through the Student Portal. A great benefit of Dining Dollars is you pay no sales tax on purchases, so it’s like a built-in discount on every purchase! You can use Dining Dollars for lot of things, including:

  • add dessert to a meal combo at Chick-fil-A in Spellmann Center Dining Hall
  • get some toothpaste at Lion's Pride Market at 10 p.m. when you realize you’re out
  • grab Caribou Coffee at Lion's Pride Market before that 8 a.m. class 
  • pay for a guest to join you at Evans for a lunch buffet while you use a meal from your block meal plan
  • take a study break with a smoothie at Java 201 in the Butler Library
