Dining

Strong minds and healthy bodies go hand in hand. That’s why good, nutritious, freshly prepared food is a serious priority at ROBS. Our Sage Dining chefs and staff know how important they are to the educational process here, and they live to create healthy meals that delight and energize our students. They also can readily accommodate specific food allergies and sensitivities for any individual.
