NIACC offers quality food service in a fun atmosphere. Good food and good service are important to an enjoyable college experience. All housing students must purchase a 19-meal plan. The cafeteria is located directly in the residence hall. Meals are served buffet style. Several entrees are served at each meal, from a garden fresh salad bar to an Italian section offering rotating entrees such as homemade pizza and a meat bar to a variety of die dishes. Plus, no one need to go away hungry – unlimited helpings are available at every meal. Several special dining events are offered throughout the year for events like Pondfest, Valentine’s dinner, Thanksgiving dinner, and other holiday meals. And, treats are often planned during midterms and finals week as a stress buster.
