Every item that we serve in both the Dining Commons and the Boren Center Food Court will be accompanied by labels to list any of the eight major food allergens. Therefore, if an item contains soy, dairy, shellfish, gluten, peanuts, tree nuts, or eggs, a special icon will be placed on that item’s label.
Our Executive Chef works closely with students who have special dietary requirements and allergies. For those with a low to moderate level of need, he works to provide specific food options that meet their needs and is available for questions and feedback.
Individuals with more serious needs can meet regularly with our chefs to be sure their needs are accommodated. In the rare case that we cannot accommodate a student’s needs within our normal dining offerings we will work with the student to provide a more individualized plan.
LaRita Boren Campus Center
The LaRita Boren Campus Center surrounds the Rediger Chapel/Auditorium and hosts a prime spot for studying and socializing. This new facility is the home for our student development program as well as a community space for our students, staff, parents, and alumni to gather; it also houses the Reade Ave. Market convenience store and more great destinations for meals. Students can use a percentage of their meal swipes to purchase preset combo meals from the menu offerings as well as use their Dining Dollars to have the freedom to enjoy any of the food offerings throughout the Zurcher Commons inside of the Campus Center.
In addition to grab-and-go items, the Campus Center houses Chick-Fil-A Express and three other dining destinations in a food court-style setup where each functions as its own restaurant.
