The University has four main dining areas that students frequent every day: University Commons, The Hawk's Nest, Gengras Café, and Konover. The Commons is the main dining hall—it is buffet-style with a variety of stations full of different foods. There is always a pizza station, grill station, sandwich station, and salad bar. The other stations change day to day and feature home-cooked-style meals prepared by the chefs, and there is also a kosher station. The food at the Commons is good, but students get tired of it because it is generally the same food every day, and it is probably different from what they are used to eating at home. The Hawk's Nest is designed like a sports bar, and the food also fits into this theme—it includes a variety of burgers, fries, pizza, wings, and wraps.
Gengras Café is home to different food stations, including pitas, pasta, burgers, and a salad bar. There is also an Einstein Bros. Bagels here, which is a place students like to go for breakfast and coffee. Lastly, Konover is home to Deli Expressand Taco Bell Express, which are both open late. The University also has its own restaurant, the 1877 Club, which is a reservation-only buffet-style restaurant. Faculty and staff often dine here, and students go here on special occasions. Upperclassmen can choose from three meal plan options, while all freshmen get the same plan.
