Bulldog Cafes

At Thaddeus Stevens College, students always have the opportunity of enjoying a meal or just a quick snack from one of two Bulldog Cafés. Bulldog Café I is located on the first floor of the Schwalm Student Center. Bulldog Café II is located adjacent to the Main Lobby at the Branch Campus.

At the Bulldog Cafés, you can purchase cold subs and hot meatball sandwiches, as well as cheese and chicken quesadillas. Snacks include: chips, ice cream bars, candy, soft pretzels, and iced coffee, just to name a few.

Students, who may need a quick bite to eat, can receive a replacement meal by simply having their ID card swiped. At times, hours of operation may change to better serve student needs, or when conflicting with a campus-wide activity or event.
