Life at MTI


Food Service

Meals are served in the Campus Center for a charge during the hours students are in attendance.  A variety of tasty meals including a cafeteria line, a short order grill and a grab-and-go cooler offer a wide variety of selections.

Most days, hot breakfast is served. If you're short on time, you'll find cereals, protein bars, fresh fruit and yogurt and, of course, several coffee and juice selections. If you have the time, treat yourself to a tasty omelet, breakfast burrito or other savory breakfast hot off the grill.

At lunch time you can indulge in a wide variety of choices ranging from steak to hot dishes to specialty items like chislic. Or order a burger and fries or grab a slice of pizza.

Meals and individual items are very reasonably priced. All food is made by students in MTI's highly regarded Culinary Academy. Each day's menu is posted via email and on campus electronic monitors.
