Eating healthy on campus can feel difficult. In an effort to support you making smarter choices, we are rolling out the Healthy Options Program. This program highlights entrees and side items approved by our Dietitian. Beth Ingemie, MS, RD, has reviewed our menu, recipes and ingredients to select options that will fill your diet with lean protein, whole grain, healthy fats, fresh fruits and vegetables. Each item is denoted with the green "Thumbs Up" as seen above. When planning healthier meals, look for the Thumbs Up icon online, in front of The Commons, and even at the point of selection.
