Many exciting dining changes are coming to campus this fall! With one successful year already under their belt, CulinArt’s dining team has unveiled their action plan for the coming year — with an emphasis on student requests for more variety, more flavorful dishes, and more healthy menu options.
“The Faculty Student Association (FSA) and CulinArt have been working together to bring forth new menus and concepts that focus on customization and flexibility to create exciting dining options that focus on incorporating student feedback into the daily dining experience on campus,” said Dawn Villacci, FSA Manager for Dining Services.
Get zoodled at Roth Food Court
Some of the most exciting changes are happening at Roth Food Court! Only a short walk from the Student Activities Center (SAC), Roth is a hidden gem.
- A zoodle machine is coming to Tuscan Bistro, so students can have healthier pasta options in addition to the farrow, quinoa and whole grain pastas already offered.
- Smash n’ Shake will now have wings! Try boneless and traditional wings with yummy dipping sauces, plus delicious sandwiches like the crispy or grilled chicken ranch avocado club or grilled cheese.
- Another egg-cellent addition at Roth Café is the all-day egg station for made-to-order omelets and burritos plus sweet and savory crepes.
Go global at SAC
Global Flavour is coming to the SAC, with rotating menu options featuring Hawaiian, Indian and Latin cuisine, bento boxes, southern bbq and so much more. SAC is also getting a spin on cold brew with Nitro Coffee from Farmer Brothers, plus an all new coffee island for faster speed of service and variety.
Meet me at West
The West Side Dining convenience store is undergoing a complete overhaul. The new 2,000 sq. ft. store will offer grab-and-go sandwiches and salads, fresh produce, grocery items, coffee, beverages, snacks, ice cream novelties, and cookware. During the construction, FSA has set up a temporary store behind West Side Dining, near the West Apartments so you can use your Dining Dollars or Wolfie Wallet to buy snacks, beverages, and grab-and-go options.
A student favorite, Jasmine at the Charles B. Wang Center will feature new appetizers such as Korean, Sesame Lemon Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, BBQ and Buffalo wings, White Sauce Rice Cakes and Cupbap (rice/soup bowls). There will also be a Dosa Grill every other week which will rotate with the Hibachi Grill. Sushi-Do now has poke bowls so you can customize the options to make it into your own creation!
Grab and Go galore at East
The salad bar at the Emporium at East Side Dining will rotate with a brand new yogurt bar. Plus a new Icee slush machine has been installed so you can cool off on hot days! Additional grab-and-go items such as paninis, baked ziti and more vegan and vegetarian options will also be available. While at East Side Dining be sure to stop by the East Meets West deli to try the new bagel sandwiches.
More Hours, More Food Choices at Tabler Market
It is nighttime and you don’t want to leave your quad. You can now visit the all new Avenue C self-checkout micro-market offering hundreds of fresh products at Tabler Market in the Tabler Center for Arts, Culture and Humanities. The Avenue C vending area includes fresh food choices and your favorite sweet indulgences as well as Halal, Kosher, and Vegan options.
