About Dining Services

We offer two main dining venues on campus - the Falcon’s Nest and Canova Commons, both located in Tompkins College Center - where you can grab a quick bite on the way to class or settle in for a relaxing respite from your studies. Additionally, the Cyber Café, tucked next to the Samuels Theater, offers delicious smoothies and acai bowls!

Mission Statement

Farm Source Program

Our FarmSource program is an initiative to find and partner with some of the finest local growers and producers. With assistance from organizations like Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) we are able to enhance the freshness and quality of our product offerings without compromising our commitment to food safety… while supporting and strengthening the local agricultural community. We utilize only suppliers and growers who follow the high standards set forth by regulatory agencies like the FDA, the State Department of Agriculture and local health departments.
