Located in our student housing complex, the Gastronome dining hall is run by Aramark, a global food-service company committed to reducing environmental impacts while enriching and supporting the natural environment. The facility provides vegetarian and vegan options, and uses all reusable silverware, plating and cups. The company’s Green Thread platformOpens in new window emphasizes:

  • Local, seasonal and responsibly raised, grown and sourced products whenever possible
  • Minimizing waste by reducing, reusing and recycling
  • Efficient operations that conserve energy and water
  • Transportation management programs that reduce fuel use and emissions
