  • Monthly programming by the campus dietitian on a variety of food and nutrition related topics.
  • Opportunity to taste a variety of international cuisines and learn about different cultures. 
  • Restaurant style seating in dining facilities which promotes socializing, student engagement and collaborative thinking.
  • Leadership opportunities through student positions on the Marist Culinary Council.
