Dine at the Beaver Dam

OSU-Cascades Beaver Dam dining (inside Obsidian Hall) is a favorite gathering place for students and faculty. Our talented chefs and student staff create and serve daily soups, salads, and specials — from multiple stations — that are nutritious, delicious and largely scratch prepared. The Beaver Dam offers a wide variety of foods to satisfy dietary requirements and requests, and are always open to working one-on-one with students.
