Feeding hungry minds with quality food and customer service.

Campus Dining Feeding hungry minds with quality food and customer service.
If you are hungry, we can help you! Whether you live on campus or off, ASU-Beebe can provide the campus community with great food and exceptional service. Students can choose from four dining locations within walking distance of campus housing and classrooms on any of our campuses. We offer traditional choices and ethnic and international cuisine and work to meet special dietary needs, like vegetarian, low-fat and gluten-free options. Find what food fits you with our variety of meal plans and the opportunity to discuss your needs with our staff. 

Provided by Great Western Dining, menu options include a deli station, salad bar, grill and a cafeteria line to provide an array of food choices. The Great Western Dining staff is committed to providing excellent food and service to our students and community. We encourage student involvement and seek feedback to ensure dining services represent the varied lifestyles of today’s students.

Meal Plans

Regardless of where you live, ASU-Beebe offers a variety of dining options to accommodate your needs. The plans available are based on a combination of the number of prepaid meals and/or amount of declining balance (“Blue Bucks”) loaded on an individual’s VanCard (ID card). Blue Bucks dollars work on the same principle as bank debit cards. Each time you make a food purchase with your VanCard, the total cost of your food purchase is subtracted from the dollar balance in your account. Blue Bucks dollars carry over from the fall to the spring semester. 

Current options include: 

  • 17-Meal Residential Meal Plan. The cost is $1,500.00 per semester. This includes access to 17 meals per week and $80.00 of Blue Bucks dollars. This plan is accessible at any ASU-Beebe food service location (Beebe, Heber Springs, and Searcy campuses). Meals expire at the end of each semester; Blue Bucks expire on June 30 each year.  
  • 10-Meal Block Plan. The cost is $55.00 per 10-meal block. This includes 10 meals that can be redeemed at any dining hall (Beebe, Heber Springs, and Searcy campuses). This plan is not assessable at the Blue Brew Shop in the Owen Center. Meals do not expire.  

Contact the Office of Student Life to order a meal plan.
