John and Mary Metz Dining Hall

Located in the Banks Student Life Center, resident students and commuters alike join in the Dining Hall for "all-you-care-to-eat" breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Students with a large variety of tastes and diets will have no problem choosing something from one of our seven dining stations. From J. Clark's Grille for burgers and fries to our fresh salad bar with two hot soups daily, there is always something to enjoy.

Students can pay with their dining plan, Cougar points, flex dollars, credit card, or cash.

The dining hall is not only for eating! Throughout the school year, there are many activities featured during regular dining hours such as Oktoberfest, the Super Bowl Tailgate Luncheon, March Madness, the Ultimate Campus Chef competition, and live entertainment just to name a few!

Have a food allergy or other dietary concern? Our staff, including our Executive Chef, works directly with students with unique diets to ensure everyone is not only accommodated, but carefully considered so that they may enjoy delicious food, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What is the difference between Meals, Cougar Points, and Flex?

A. Meals are used in the Dining Hall during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. They are considered declining balance. For example, if you purchase 100 meals, and you eat in the Dining Hall 3 times in one day, your new meal balance is 97. Meals expire at the end of the semester, and do not carry over from semester to semester.

Cougar Points are the Flex Dollars that come with you Meal Plan. They work like Flex Dollars.

Flex is a safe way to use money all around campus. Think of Flex Dollars as a pre-paid debit card with your picture on it. Loaded onto your student ID, your purchases are automatically deducted from your pre-paid Flex Dollars. It is a convenient and great supplement to meals. Flex Dollars can be used just like cash at any of our dining locations (John & Mary Metz Dining Hall, Starbucks, The Chopping Block, Chick-fil-A, InterMetzo, and Passan Hall). Additional Flex Dollars can be purchased throughout the semester from the Dining Services Offices in $50 increments. Flex Dollars transfer from fall to spring semester. Any Flex Dollars remaining on your account after the spring semester will not be refunded or transferred to the following academic year.

Q. What if I have a food allergy or other dietary restriction such as a low fat diet? What if I want to live a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle on campus?

A. We are very sensitive to the unique food situations of students, both those who are physically unable to eat certain foods, and those that choose a specific lifestyle. Our staff, including our Chef, works directly with these students on a one-on-one basis to ensure everyone is not only accommodated, but carefully considered so that they may enjoy delicious food while at school.

Q. What do I do if I lost my student ID, need to add meals or Flex, or have other general questions regarding meal plan policies?

A. The staff at Misericordia Student Accounts will be glad to assist you with any questions or problems concerning your student ID, including adding or changing you Meal Plan. They are located in Mercy Hall and can be reached at (570) 674 - 6222.
