Food Services are adequate and are contracted through an independent food service
operator. The cafeteria is open from 7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m., serving breakfast and lunch. It is
also a multi-purpose area used for a variety of activities. In spring of 2015, the “Falcon’s
Nest,” was unveiled as a small, but dedicated space for students in the corner of the
cafeteria. The area features a set of plush leather couches squared around a coffee table
and TV, a foosball table, microwaves, and bar-top tables for eating. This project was
spearheaded by Student Senate and enhanced by custom-made furniture made by welding
students, college funds, and donations.

many requests from Inter-library Loan as it sends out.
Although a professional-technical education is central to EITC’s mission, the library also has
a small, but eclectic fiction section containing both classics and best-sellers. The Library’s
