Crown/Merrill Dining Hall

Crown/Merrill Dining Hall

A lively venue offering organic salad bar, daily speciality bar and our new gluten free station. This bright, colorful dining hall is buzzing with activity throughout the day. The Happy Hour menu each afternoon offers students additional snacks and meals. Students make it a point to meet at Crown/Merrill when they are “up on the hill”.
