Cafeteria food has never been better!  

Peterson's cafeteria food is delicious and many students and staff say!

The outside of the kitchen features four (4) LCD screens that post daily menu items for breakfast and lunch, as well as pictures of students and staff around campus.  

The food is fresh, tasty and inexpensive.  Menu items vary daily; see the monthly breakfast and lunch menus.
