It’s the year of SMU Dining.


SMU Dining will unveil yet another addition to its program: P.O.D. or Provisions on Demand Market.


This new campus convenient store was designed with students in mind as the concept was framed around meeting the needs of students looking for healthy, fresh and convenient grab-n-go dining options without leaving the comfort of their academic environment.


“Our research found that students were looking for freshly prepared foods and everyday essentials in one convenient location on campus,” David ter Kuile, director of operations for SMU dining, said in a press release. “Our goal was to develop a highly-customized solution that delivers quality, convenience, variety and value.”


There are options for any time of the day that include breakfast sandwiches, burritos, wraps, sushi, salads, fresh produce, bakery and coffee selections, as well as, traditional items found in a convenience store.


“SMU Dining is always striving to support the University’s goals by enriching and elevating our programs through a variety of enhancements. We will have more renovations throughout this year leading up to the Residential Commons opening and will continue even after the fall 2014 RC opening,” Jennifer Chang, the marketing manager for SMU Dining said.


P.O.D is located inside the Bonelli in Meadows School of the Arts and will replace the Starbucks Cart. The hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
