CSI Dining offers customer-oriented eateries featuring a variety of menu choices. We have created an environment that offers students quality, value, convenience and excitement. We are always working to bring you fun and nutritious dining choices that fit in with your lifestyle. Your options include comfort foods, gourmet coffee, grab-and-go items and much more that is available to all college students, staff and faculty. Go to to purchase a meal plan, dining dollars or ordering catering online.

Meal Plans: You choose the plan based on the number of meals you eat per week, and then add dining dollars (declining balance) to customize your plan to fit your needs.

Here's how it works. Get a meal plan and add dining dollars for:

  1. All access meals in the Taylor Café.
  2. Use your dining dollars (DBD) at the Taylor Café, Eagle’s Nest and Starbucks in the Student Union.

Once you have a meal plan, your CSI ID works like a debit card. Simply swipe your card and the meal or DBD is deducted from your account.

The student’s ID is always needed to dine in either location (unless paying with cash or credit card). Only the person matching the photo on the ID card is authorized to use it. We check each card carefully to prevent theft from lost or stolen cards for your protection. If you would like to treat a friend, you can use your dining dollars and the card holder must be present with the card.

Financial aid dollars can be applied to your meal plan purchase.
Changes can be made to your original choice within the first two weeks of school. These changes can be made with the Business Office in the Taylor Administration Building.

Residents of Eagle Hall are already on a plan. Contact Student Housing for more information about your housing contract.
You can check your dining dollar balance anytime at any dining location and you can add declining balance dollars to your card online or in the CSI Dining office in Taylor.
Students, parents, faculty and staff can learn more about meal plans and dining dollars and purchase online at
