We know that our customers’ needs and tastes are always evolving, so we pay attention to trends and feedback in order to deliver the best meal plan options possible. In order to meet these changing needs, we have designed the plans for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Living Learning Communities and Theme Communities

Living Learning Communities: The learning communities are academically supported by faculty. Students may be required to enroll in classes in relation to the community they decide to reside. The communities bring together diverse groups of residents with common intellectual, political, and/or social interests.


Theme Communities: The theme communities provide the resident with a social/lifestyle experience. Residence Halls contain several theme communities, which are based on different student interest.  Students are encouraged to enroll in classes in relation to the community they decide to reside.
