In January of 2018, Wells implemented a new provider for our dining services, Hallmark Management Service, Inc. Hallmark's management team worked quickly throughout the transition and is implementing new programs and services under Campus Dining & Events—such as a more convenient catering system, an "Eco To-Go" system using reusable containers, and expanded healthier offerings including increased vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options.
Campus Dining & Events is evaluating facilities, planning menus, and determining ways to build on the current program. For full information including weekly menus, visit the new Campus Dining and Events website.
The Express Cash card is pre-paid card that can be used to purchase food and non-alcoholic beverages at:
- The Well
- The Grind - our student run cafe in Zabriskie Hall
- The College Store
You can add money to your Express Cash card by visiting the online card management page and loading value at your convenience. Each semester for our students on the college meal plan, $100 will be added.
Commuter students can purchase a 5/10/19 swipes/week meal plan. The cost will be added to their student account. To purchase the plan, please visit our request form. Please allow 2-3 business days for the plan to be activated. For more information on each plan, visit Hallmark's Campus Dining and Events website.
The Dining Hall
In the Dining Hall, students enjoy a family buffet style service featuring both comfort food and varied entrees, as well as a taco bar and an extensive salad bar along with homemade soups, from scratch pizza, and an array of desserts. The managing staff makes a wholehearted commitment to meet all necessary needs, whether it be vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, and offers healthy options under the Bite Right program. If you have dietary restrictions or special request for holidays and religious observances, please get in touch with the managing staff.
Wells is committed to ecological sustainability and is a willing participant in the global initiative to create less waste and consume fewer resources with great emphasis placed on fresh local ingredients. Weekly menus are sent to the student, faculty and staff email lists.
The Well is an on-campus pub offering a pub-style menu, fountain soda, canned & draft beer (local & domestic), local & foreign wine. Located in Smith Hall below the Sommer Center.
The Grind is a student-run café operating in Zabriskie Hall, offering coffee, tea, and assorted snacks and beverages. The management team is comprised of five students working together to operate and promote the café as a business. They earn internship credit and are organized through the Center for Business and Entrepreneurship.
Please check back often for catering information and menus as the kitchen is always creating new offerings to add to the menu!
