Finlandia Dining Hall new meal plan and food offerings

February 14, 2019

Dining services just got an upgrade

Finlandia University will have new food offering available to students at Finlandia Dining Hall and a new meal plan option for students this fall.

Based off the responses collected from a dining services survey sent out to students and staff this spring, the results prompted the dining services team to take action.

“The number of folks who took the time to complete the survey was impressive,” said Director of Dining Services Tim Nakkula. “This tells us you all really care about the food.”

Currently, upper class students living in the residence hall only have the option of the 19-meal plan. That will change this fall with the introduction of 14-meal plan. On-campus students who have accumulated over 54 credit hours will have the option to choose the 14-meal plan. The new plan will save $542 per semester when compared to the 19-meal plan.

The survey results also prompted changes to the daily offerings provided at the dining hall. Some of the new offerings include:

  • New toppings for the salad bar – diced ham and turkey, a larger variety of dressings, feta cheese, craisins, slivered almonds
  • Including sandwich wraps into the menu cycle
  • Daily fresh soup or chili
  • New entrée choices

The changes to the menu take some time but Nakkula has assured that he, and the rest of the dining services team, will continue to accommodate as many requests as possible to ensure the quality and satisfaction of Finlandia Dining Services.
