Kosher Food/Meals
Students can select a kosher meal plan through the university's dining services at no extra cost. "Green World" in the Colonnades dining hall provides vegan and vegetarian meals prepared with pots and pans used only for vegan and vegetarian foods, and paper plates and disposable cutlery are available. The kitchen and dining room are not under rabbinic supervision but dining services has collaborated with Hillel staff and Rabbi Geoffrey Claussen to review ingredients, recipes, and food preparation to stay in line with kosher practices. The Sklut Hillel Center has a clear separation between meat and dairy—it's main kitchen is only dairy and the outside grill is used to prepare meat. Students are welcome to prepare meals and eat in the Hillel Center, and Hillel provides free kosher food for students to prepare and eat throughout the year. Chabad offers Friday night dinners every Shabbat.
