Students living in TC3 residence halls MUST sign up for a meal plan. Other students may also choose to purchase a meal plan through the College. There is a range of flexibility in the plans to meet every need.
Where to Eat
There are two locations on campus to get something to eat: the TC3 Eatery and the Fireside Café. Both are open to students, faculty, staff, and visitors and accept a variety of payment options. Variety is the specialty of TC3’s dining services, with plentiful options for every palate, and a wide sampling of vegetarian and vegan options as well.
Choose from numerous specialty food stations and menus updated daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Stations include “Breakfast at Sunrise,” “Crock and Ladle,” the “Produce Stand,” the “Market Place” featuring home-style comfort foods, “World Fair/Fusion,” “The American Grill and Griddle,” “MaMa’s Italian Kitchen,” “The Panini Press,” and “Show Time,” an exhibition cooking station that alternates between pastas and made-to-order stir fry.
The TC3 Eatery accepts cash and credit cards in addition to student meal plans and Panther Dollars.
The Fireside Café is located at the north entrance of the Dr. Lucille S. Baker Commons and offers a variety of beverages, including tea, coffee, espresso, cappuccinos, lattes, and a selection of pastries, bagels, and snacks. The Café also features a relaxing lounge seating area, which is a popular place for students to study, relax, or work in groups.
The Café has regular hours and accepts cash, credit cards, Panther Dollars, and flex dollars from student meal plans.
