Louis J. Esposito Dining Center

This is the largest student restaurant on campus and is an "All-You-Care-To-Eat" restaurant that offers the widest variety of meal choices. Students, faculty and staff can select from 13 food and beverage stations designed to provide broad meal variety throughout the semester.

Daily featured items include: fresh baked pizza, homestyle entrees, soul food, artisan sandwiches and wraps, specialty ethnic cuisine as well as classic grilled sandwiches that are made to order and served complete with spreads, toppings and a basket of crispy fries. Six food stations are self-serve so diners can compose their own meals. These stations include salad bar, deli bar, vegan chef station, pasta bar, fruit bar and dessert.

These include our 48 item, double-sided salad bar, 22 item deli bar, "top hits" vegan chef station, pasta bar, fruit station, and dessert selections that are all baked fresh in-house by our pastry staff. Esposito is also our main venue for dining promotions that inject special cuisine, cooking exhibitions, live music, contests, decorations and fun into every month.
