Your choices start with a selection of three entrées per meal (one vegetarian), a build-your-own sandwich bar (lunch only), a salad bar (lunch & dinner), a variety of beverages, snack items, and assorted fruits and desserts. You can design your own breakfast on the "cook-your-own" grill, prepare your own bread or bagel, or pick up one of our "grab-&-go" meals or full breakfast entrées.

The J is also home to the J Grill, where you can get freshly-prepared meals — from gourmet burgers, fries, sun spots, grilled cheese, grilled chicken & more.

Our daily menus always contain a wide variety of choices to suit diners of all tastes. The J also offers special theme meals to celebrate seasonal and campus events, and the large salad bar features a variety of fresh vegetables, fruits and prepared salads.

Nutritional Information

Dining Service is working at adding nutritional information for all of our areas and our first endeavor is the J..

Nutritional Information provided here is for informational purposes. When no serving size is given, the information reflects the portion size served by "J" servers. Because our entrees are made by hand, their nutritional value may change based on available ingredients, as well as added condiments or other additions.
