Both men worked at Cucina, the highly regarded Kohler Co. restaurant, for more than a decade before bringing their collective talent, experience and imagination to Lakeland.
Says Mark, who has created fine cuisine at Lakeland for 12 years: “At least 75 percent of the food we prepare is directly driven by what our students want. We talk one-on-one with them daily.”
So interactive are the relationships between Mark, Joe and our students, Lakeland’s chefs have been known to borrow treasured family recipes and prepare students’ favorite meals. In addition, Mark and Joe work closely with students and their families to offer gluten-free and allergy-safe fare.
Those are just a couple of ways Mark, Joe and the rest of our friendly, dedicated staff strive to make you feel at home. There are many other aspects of Lakeland Dining that make us a cut above other colleges and universities. Among them:
In addition to the vast array of Lakeland Dining offerings, the Muskie Grill serves up more than 50 prepared to order options such as burgers and sandwiches. The Daily Grind, a popular campus hangout, sells coffee, lattes, smoothies and other beverages. Brand new to the Daily Grind is the Daily Scoop, which serves various imaginative flavors of ice cream in a cone or cup.
“We don’t bring anything subpar to the table,” says Mark. “The benchmark we have set here is much higher than at most colleges. I don’t know of too many that offer the quality and variety we do.”
Listed below are just some of the most popular meals created by the student-centric Lakeland Dining staff:

Lakeland University's Award-Winning Dining Services offers a wide selection of meal plans as well as a large and verse selection of food! The meal plans, in descending order are, 200, 150, 100, 75, and Commuter. Each meal plan consists of Lakeland Dining Meals, Flex Meals, and Muskie Money. You will notice that as the number of Lakeland Dining/Flex meals decreases, the included Muskie Money increases. Once you have selected a Lakeland University Meal Plan, it will automatically be loaded into your One Card Account and used through your Campus Card. But first, let's define the terms:
Lakeland Dining Meals and Flex Meals left over at the end of each semester do not carry over to the next semester. Muskie Money left over from Fall Semester or Spring Semester will carry over through May Term, but are forfeit at the end of May Term. Based on the Spring Semester meal plan, a pro-rated number of meals only is automatically entered into the student's account for those attending May Term classes.
* Prices are subject to change
All resident students are required to purchase a meal plan.
If you use your entire selected meal plan up before the end of the semester, we offer discounted Meal Packages for purchase in the Business Office, WAK, First Floor.
For more information regarding additional meal packages or how the Meal Plans work, feel free to contact the Campus Card Office at 920-565-1030 Ex. 2246 or
