Dining Services

Dining Venues, Menus and Hours

Dining Services encompasses a number of full-service, self-service, dine-in and to-go establishments across campus.

Located at one end of the CGUS (Center for Graduate & Undergraduate Studies), the Socrates Café dining area is an active place for students and the LIFE Community to eat, study or just socialize. The dining room has seating for more than 250, not including the Presidential Dining Room (PDR), which can be divided into two separate meeting areas. Additionally, the entire south wall of the Café opens to an inviting outdoor patio area with shaded seating areas featuring a fire pit, a reflection pool and calming water streams.

The dining room features high ceilings, natural lighting and booth seating with flat screen monitors that you can connect to your laptop. There are four flat screen displays in the center of the space that show news, sports and campus event calendars – there’s even a drop-down projection screen that can be used for event presentations and is often used for LIFE sporting events.

Affordable, healthy menu items are prepared to provide something for everyone, and when possible, include locally sourced and/or organically produced options. We strive to obtain as much produce and protein from local farmers and other vendors committed to sustainability and humane treatment of animals.

Life U Brew is our own Starbucks branded beverages located in the space previously named Plato II Go. It serves all your favorite Starbucks beverages, both hot and cold alongside grab & go food options.
