Need a Job?

The dining service hires more than 450 students each semester to work in the various dining facilities. For more information about available positions or to apply online, visit our website at Campus Dish. Job possibilities include cashier or checker, cleaning tables/floors, food preparation/serving, cleaning dishes, general labor, and student manager.


What is Flex? Flex is the additional money added to your meal plan to enhance your dining experience. Flex works like a prepaid credit card and is deducted off your I-Card when you swipe. The balance in your Flex account carries over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester. However, at the end of the Spring semester, the dining contract is concluded and any remaining Flex dollar balance is forfeited. If you run low on Flex, simply reload. Add more Flex online in URSA or at the Office of Housing, Residential Living, and Dining.

Do You Have a Special Diet?

Nutritional information, including fat grams, caloric content, sodium content, and cholesterol levels, are available for all menu items in each dining facility and on the website. In addition, each location provides low-fat, low-calorie entrees, salads, yogurt, and other healthy options. For students who need to follow a specific diet for health reasons, individually prepared meals can be provided. Our campus dietitian is available to help with any questions, concerns, healthy eating tips, fitness, weight management, and eating disorders. You can reach the dietitian by phone at 724-357-2570.
