On Campus Eateries
For incoming freshmen, the campus may seem a bit overwhelming. With its spacious buildings and sprawling geography, getting a quick bite to eat may seem time consuming. Fear not: With just a little knowledge, you can find your way to grub in no time. The largest eatery on campus is the Marketplace, located in the DeRosa University Center (UC). Bon Appétit Management Company compiles a unique meal plan every week, so students can enjoy a variety of foods from breakfast to dinner.
Whether you are a carnivore or vegetarian, this place will always have options. Also in the same location is the Calaveras Coffee House, which serves small snacks and an assortment of coffee beverages, tea, smoothies and juices.
If you walk upstairs in the UC, you’ll come to The Lair, which is a popular hangout spot for late night dining, as well as delicious pub-fare foods. Also in The Lair, musical and comedic entertainment is hosted year-round, from open mic nights to stand-up comedy. For those 21+ folks, there is a bar!
Working your way towards the center of campus, you’ll come across The Grove, a grocery store located in the McCaffrey Center that provides organic produce, as well as grab-and-go lunch options. There are also essential cleaning products and toiletries stocked for your dorm! Headed into the library? The Davey Cafe offers up some much-needed caffeine during study breaks, with coffee, tea and snacks offered.
On the south side of campus is the E.A.T. Truck, which offers up some gourmet food on the go. It is located by the Psychology/Communications Building and is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.
