The Commons is the main Campus Restaurant. We transform the typical all-you-care-to-eat culture by artfully composing every plate, reminiscent of the feeling you have while visiting your favorite restaurant. Modeled after Spanish Tapas, our Dining Services offer restaurant quality fare in small-plate presentations. We encourage guests to explore and experience a variety of foods, offered in tasting-size portions. Our goal is for you to enjoy it so much that you can’t wait to come back for more.

Our Culinary Team artfully composes every plate with care. We encourage you to visit the five main Composed Food Stations as well as the Salad, Dessert, Cereal & Beverage, and ‘Make Your Own Waffle’ Stations. Don’t forget to conclude your meal with a handcrafted dessert or soft serve ice cream.

Watch the "art in action" right before your eyes!
