    Joe's Coffee Shop

    BI - Joes Logo and CafeJoe’s Coffee Shop was named in honor of Moody’s 7th President: Dr. Joseph Stowell. Considered to be the campus “living room,” the unparalleled Joe’s Coffee Shop is located on the 2nd floor of the Alumni Student Center and provides a comfortable atmosphere for studying, conversation and relaxation. 

    This student-run coffee shop offers a wide variety of high quality espresso drinks, regular drip coffee, teas, smoothies and pastries. Joe’s hosts live music, provides a popular gathering space, and aims to support the creativity of the student body.

    Student Meal Plans

    Students are automatically enrolled in the 15-meal plan. If students would like to change their meal plan they will only need to contact the Food Service Office at (312) 329-4324 or foodservice@moody.edu by the end of the second week of classes each semester. Unless otherwise requested, each student will remain on the meal plan in which they are currently enrolled.

    Funds can be added to student fobs or to a Food Service Card to make quicker and easier purchases at any of our Food Service locations. One favored spot is Joe’s: our unparalleled, student-run coffees hop which offers a relaxing atmosphere for studying or breaks. We also have The Commons, our premier retail café where they can quickly grab freshly made grill options, pre-made sandwiches, or their desired snack.
