Free Nutritious Snacks
In an attempt to support students and their wellbeing, the Office of Student Activities has launched “Hunger Free Campus Initiative” that provides healthy snacks and drinks for students.*
Students can pick up their free snack and drink at the participating locations:
- Campus Center Information Desk (1st floor, across Bookstore)
- Welcome Center (1st floor, SEC lobby area)
- Counseling Center (SEC-139)
- STEM Center
*Snacks and drinks are available in limited quantities during the hours of operation at each location. Please be mindful of your food and drink allergies. We encourage you to check the Nutritional Facts and ingredients list before choosing consuming snacks and/or drinks.
