JCA Dining Hall

The Mane Hall is the main hub for student meals. The Mane Hall has multiple options each day that can satisfy any appetite. Students can choose daily from fresh entrees in the home zone, a rotisserie station, the grill, an omelet station, a fresh salad bar, make your own waffles, and a self-serve sandwich bar. Students can top it off with a visit to the dessert bar, complete with fresh local ice cream and pastries. The Mane Hall also offers a Bonus Bite or a themed monthly dinner that encourages the MU community to eat together.
