Faculty & Staff Plans

Having a campus meal plan allows you to customize your meal purchases based on your schedule; whether it’s a full meal in our CLC Dining Hall, a freshly made to order sub sandwich at SubConnection or a jolt of espresso from Jazzman’s Cafe on your way to teach that 8:00am class.
