Meal Plans

As a commuter student, you do have the option to purchase meal plans, or a block of 15, 50, or 75 meals, to use throughout the semester. You may also deposit money to use as Warriorbucks on your ID Card. Students without a meal plan will be charged for cafeteria meals at the door.

Lake Norcentra

Located on the campus of Rochester Christian University, Lake Norcentra Park is a peaceful setting of towering trees, scenic bluffs, a small lake, and a pond. A favorite spot for the campus community since the university opened in 1959, the park and adjoining estate house were formerly owned by Detroit advertising executive Lou Maxon. The park’s natural beauty and intriguing history make it a memorable place for the campus community and visitors alike.
