While the classroom sharpens our students into dynamic agents of Christ-like change, the JCA Dining Hall and Roger’s Café are the places where our community thrives. If you go for coffee or sit down for a meal, you will get more than a caffeine boost or a plate of food at Multnomah. You’ll hear encouragement from friends and wisdom from professors in Christ-centered conversations. We are proud to provide the place where these life-giving moments happen and make all the difference in the lives of students.
JCA Dining Hall
The JCA Dining Hall is the main hub for student meals. The Dining 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 Dining Hall also offers themed dinners once a week that encourage the MU community to eat together.
