Dining at Cal

logoAt Cal Dining, our mission is to create a dining program that students sincerely like, enjoy, understand and support.
We provide more than sustenance; we provide a familial atmosphere that becomes an important part of the student's Cal Living experience. "Breaking bread" together while making friends has become a unique by-product of dining together, creating a living/learning atmosphere where students gather to eat, chat and hang out.
