We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. 

Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:


Getting your meal to go? We will be implementing a reusable to-go container program coming soon! We will continue to update you in our progress.

Trayless Dining

Did you know Dining Services has been trayless since 2008? By dining trayless, you have helped positively impact the waste stream. Dining trayless minimizes food waste, conserves energy and water, and reduces the amount of cleaning chemicals entering the waste stream.

Fryer Oil Recycling

One hundred percent of dining services used fryer oil is recycled by a local company to be used for bio grade diesel.

Hydration Stations

Dining Services offers several hydration stations throughout campus. Use the filtered water stations to refresh and refuel while helping to impact your carbon footprint.

Energy & Water Conservation

We train our employees each semester on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
