Dining Services

Baker Refectory, located on the main floor of Ellis Hall, is the dining hall for students. It offers an all you care to eat facility where all students residing in college residence halls are required to select from meal plan options 1 through 3. All first semester freshman students are automatically assigned meal plan 1. Meal exchanges are offered for lunch at Simply to Go, Jitters, and Eagle's Landing. Eagle’s Landing also offers meal exchange at dinner.

The options are as follows:

Plan 1 All inclusive (19 meals/week) $50 DCB
Plan 1A 16 meals per week $125 DCB
Plan 2 185 meals per semester $200 DCB
Plan 3 120 meals per semester $300 DCB
Plan 4 60 meals per semester $100 DCB
Plan 5 20 meals per semester $100 DCB
Plan FS Field Station Only N/A

No meal plan changes will be permitted after the drop/add period.

Non-campus students, commuters and students residing in college-owned houses may choose any plan. Any other exceptions to meal plan options must have the prior approval of the Dean of Students. The Dining Service Office should be notified of any special dietary needs as prescribed by a physician and efforts will be made to accommodate requests.

The procedures for obtaining a food service waiver are: submit the diet prescribed by a physician to the Dean of Students Office (a doctor’s note simply requesting release will not suffice). The diet will be reviewed. The student will be notified of the decision in writing.

A "missed meal" factor is taken into account in determining the charges for the various board plans and helps reduce the price. No refund is made for meals missed.

The declining balance dollars (DCB dollars) allow purchases in The Eagle's Landing, Mocha Run, Jitters, Simply - To-Go, Brewed Awakenings, Nathan Hall, Baker Refectory and Sodexo catering. Moneys from the DCB account may also be used by the students to pay for any guests they bring to the dining hall. All declining cash balances (DCBs) associated with meal plans that are not used by the end of each academic year will be forfeited

Participants in internships and student teachers may be permitted to select an appropriate "Block Plan" if the Dean of Students determines that the student cannot take full advantage full meal plans. Appeals for such consideration must be submitted in writing to the Dean of Students Office within the first two weeks of the semester. Additionally, bag lunches are available to student teachers. Please contact the Food Service Office.

The dining room is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in accordance with the college calendar. Students may select from assorted entrees (including vegetarian selections at each meal). We also feature a grill line, an exhibition cooking format, a deli, Smoothie Bar and more. We also feature a Simple Servings Station where foods served are prepared exclusively with ingredients which do not include the following food allergens; Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, & Gluten.

A catering staff is available for special functions and arrangements can be made through the Catering Office (x3334) or catering@juniata.edu.

Additional DCB dollars may be added to your account through the Accounting Office at any time during the semester. These DCBs can be refunded or carried over each year.
