The Commons, a gourmet buffet-style eatery offering breakfast, lunch and dinner, was opened in 1968 and renovated in 2018. The upper level of the Commons features an open dining area, as well as a faculty dining room. Students can use meal swipes at the Commons. There are vegan and vegetarian options, as well as sandwich and soup and salad bars. A variety of healthy, home-style and hearty meals are offered daily, if you don't skip right to the full spread of desserts first. The Commons also daily offers unlimited brick-oven fired pizza and baked pasta dishes.
