On Tuesday, the Division of Student Development and Enrollment Services launched the university’s first-ever food truck that serves healthy food options as well as cooking demonstrations.

“We care about the well-being of our students and we want them to discover the benefits of eating and living healthy,” said Maribeth Ehasz, vice president for student development and enrollment services.
