Brand Name Products

FSA is proud to offer brands such as Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts. Offering these trusted and well recognized brands was a collaborative effort between FSA, Campus Dining Services and students. Through student surveys and input from the Student Voice Committee, FSA was able to offer your favorite brands right here on campus at prices that are lower or equal to these national chains located off campus.


Since 2005, FSA operations have contributed over $3.8 million to student scholarship funds.
