Fire Pit

Need a bit of extra fuel to get through a long night of studying? The Fire Pit will be your saving grace. Located in the Stark Student Center, the Fire Pit is the place to get food late at night after the Café has closed. This evening grill is the perfect response to all your late-night hunger pains.


The Pit offers students everything from wings and cheeseburgers to all your other favorite fried foods. Don’t miss taking a dip into Fire Pit's wide variety of dipping sauce options from your standard ketchup and mayonnaise to our signature fire sauce. There is something for everyone.
