The Kitchen Table

Most alums will tell you that the ORU cafeteria serves as the place where many great conversations happen, ideas are born and friendships are established. Dormitory wings and their corresponding brother/sister wings have designated spaces they can use to eat and socialize. And a student committee works with the cafeteria staff to insure that students' requests and feedback are heard. Dining options within the cafeteria include everything from the traditional grill to deli-style sandwiches, fruits, vegetables, salads and a salad bar, an array of cereals, pizza and pastas, and Asian, Mexican and specialty cuisines, all served cafeteria-style with plenty of options available.
