Food Service Committee

The student Life Committee of Student Senate assists the Dining Management team in the task of planning and evaluating services. If you have ideas about the Dining Center, snack bar, meal options, quality or service; you may contact a food committee member, write on our Opinion card and drop it in our suggestion box, or speak the Dining Service Manager.

Special Dietary Needs

Students with special dietary needs should consult with the Food Service Director. All efforts will be made to meet the special needs of the student.

Aladdin at West Virginia Wesleyan has implemented a gluten free and lactose free station, offering fresh entrees for lunches and dinners, as well as a variety of freshly prepared sides and vegetables.  Aladdin has worked toward offering ancient grains and super foods such as quionoa and edamame to also help meet the needs of vegan and vegetarian diets. 

Please feel free to visit our dining center kitchen to speak directly with the chefs who prepare the food, to learn more about how certain items are prepared, and what ingredients are used.

Meals On The Go

If a required school activity prohibits you from attending a meal(s), we will pack a meal(s) for you. Please have your department head or coach request your needs two days in advance with the Dining Manager. ID will be needed when an order is placed.

Trayless Dining

Aladdin and West Virginia Wesleyan are proud to sponsor a trayless dining program. Trayless dining reduces our environmental footprint. It decreases waste, conserves natural resources (namely, energy and water) and reduces the introduction of polluting detergents, rinses, and drying agents into the water table. Socially, trayless dining can provide education and awareness about environmental issues, while also potentially reinforcing a healthy lifestyle. It is an initiative that supports campus sustainability.

Feeling bad?

We understand that there is nothing more miserable than being ill and unable to make it to meals.

A student who is ill and unable to come to the Dining Hall for meals, may have a friend pick up a sick tray for them at the Dining Hall. A note from their Residence Life Coordinator and their Student I.D. Card are required.

Registered Dietician

We have a wealth of resources available to our guests, including the expert guidance of a registered dietitian. Arrangements can be made for individual consultations concerning any dietary need, such as sports nutrition, weight control, food allergies, or medically prescribed diets.

Special Events

Everyone looks forward to our monthly buffets and special events.  We have holiday-themed menus and events throughout the year.  Please keep an eye on table tents, banners, and events calendar informing you of what is coming.
