The student center snack bar is open nightly, and will provide the student a place for them to grab quick snacks and fountain drinks.  This is a cash/card only site. There will be no meal credit accepted here.

** Times and locations can change at any time. Dining Services will be diligent to let Room and Board students know when there is a change.




Our Dining Services staff works very hard to provide a great dining experience for all. Each room and board student receives 18 meal credits to use throughout each week, barring holidays and special breaks throughout the semester. These credits can be used at the Dining Hall, Patriot Cafe, and the White House. All holiday closings throughout the school year will be listed on our website and school calendar.


Each student participating in Flex Plan 18 credits are allocated each week to be used at 3 different locations on campus, plus 4 different off site locations in the city of Springfield.  Flex credits will roll over each week until they expire at the end of the semester. Each student should check the days and times that each location is open. The Flex Plan will allow the student to access their credits any time throughout the semester.

    If using Flex during Christmas break, you must purchase a credit block for $300.00 before receiving your sticker. The student can use cash, check, or credit card to pay for the block of credits. A student account charge is not an option for this block. This will include 55 credits to use anytime during the semester. Please see the Bursar to pay for this block of credits. At the time of purchase you will be charged a $100.00 for the use of flex for the entire Spring 18 semester. This charge can be applied to the student’s account, or the student can pay check, cash, or credit card. If these credits are not used during the Christmas break they will rollover for use during the Spring 2018 Semester and will expire on April 20th, 2018.
