Bryce Jordan Center Concessions Serving Breakfast & Lunch During Classes

Although the coronavirus pandemic took away some of our favorite foods from the dining halls, it’s also created some tasty new options.

Two concessions stands have opened on the Bryce Jordan Center’s concourse to serve breakfast and lunch to students taking classes there. The Bakery Kiosk and Roaring Grill both launched this semester, primarily to serve students who are taking socially-distanced classes inside the BJC.

They accept both meal points and LionCash and are open three days a week

The Roaring Grill is open at portal 33 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday. The grill has an established menu of signature items like chicken baskets and soft pretzels as well as a rotating selection of specials. You can also pick up a pint of select Creamery ice cream flavors to chow down on during class.

The Bakery Kiosk is open 8:30 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, but doesn’t open until 10 a.m. on Tuesdays. It’s located at portal two and features fresh Penn State Bakery treats, juice, coffee, iced mochas, and more. The full menu updates weekly on the BJC’s website to display different specials.

The BJC sends out a weekly tweet of what type of specials you can expect to see at the Roaring Grill. I was tempted to try the chicken fajita burrito when I went but opted for a classic chicken basket instead. Solid move by me.

Both the Roaring Grill and the Bakery Kiosk are accessible through Gate A, which is located at the northwest section of the BJC near the intramural building.

Both of these spots are a nice way to switch up your on-campus eating habits, especially if you live close by in east halls. If you’re in the area either for a class or to mourn the football season at Beaver Stadium, it’s worth it to pop in the BJC for a quick bite.

This semester, the BJC is hosting eight different classes. Penn State converted the 16,000-person arena into a socially distanced lecture space over the summer, allowing professors to use the venue’s booming sound system and jumbotron to get their points across.
