Food, nutrition, and dietetics students are encouraged to become members of the Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics Club at Illinois State. The monthly meetings provide information about job opportunities available in the field and the opportunity to hear from dietetics professionals.
Members gain experience through catering events, including planning the menu, food purchasing and preparation, and organizing the food and service at the event. Community service projects also provide students with volunteer experiences helping others and opportunities to network and develop friendships with fellow students.
Nutrition Mission is a campus nutrition service provided by upper-level food, nutrition, and dietetics students. Students analyze the dietary intake of their classmates using the latest nutrient analysis software and provide suggestions for better eating. Individuals with health concerns or problems are referred to the campus dietitian (R.D.).
