SAGE cares about our wellness. Their philosophy is that all foods fit, and The SAGE Spotlight Program® guides us to build nutrient-dense plates and develop positive habits. Look to the dots to make sure you’re getting balanced, Dietitian-recommended meals.
The Performance Spotlight™ program for athletes, developed by SAGE’s Registered Dietitians and based on guidelines from the U.S. Olympic Committee, NCAA, and other sports associations, provides necessary nutrients and education for each performance phase ꟷ training, performance, and recovery. Teams can also enjoy house-made sports drinks and bars.
One in 12 students SAGE serves has at least one diagnosed food allergy. SAGE’s approach to food allergies values both safety and inclusivity. Every ingredient, recipe, and menu is reviewed and tagged with the top 12 allergens. You can use the online allergen filter and ingredient lists to plan ahead. SAGE Team Members follow strict food allergy protocols. We’re always welcome to visit the kitchen and ask about inventory and preparation methods.
Great food and sustainable practices go hand in hand. SAGE develops innovative solutions that have a positive impact on people and the planet, including sourcing from local farmers to increase the freshness and flavor of our food and reduce our carbon footprint.

- Partnering with eco-friendly vendors who use sustainable, fair trade practices.
- Purchasing ingredients that are humanely harvested.
- Supporting on-campus gardens
