2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: When I was living on campus, the food was okay. Now that I live off campus, friends of mine will tell me that the meals have changed. I heard that the cafeteria are serving the same meals each day in Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: the food is mostly the same every week and almost every day I wish they could change it up and fix good food .food that we want

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: There really isn't anywhere to eat besides the cafeteria. You must go off campus to eat.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: they have a nice variety of food on campus as well as off

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Campus food is decent, but could use a lot of improvement. Knight dining hall does not have enough seating during the lunch hour and the lines are extremely too long. The cooking and serving is not done in a very sufficient and time saving manner. Also the variety of food is very poor. Its as if the same menu is repeated every week. Also, there are no late night options. If a students is hungry after 9 there is no place to dine. It would also be very beneficial if our one on campus restaurant, the Greasy Spoon was built into our meal plan and allowed students to swipe the ID card for meals.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The only dining area on campus, other than the cafeteria, is a restaurant called "Greasy Spoon." This restaurant is a fast food place, but the food is very good and you get a lot of food. Greasy Spoon serves chicken strips, burgers, salads, chili dogs, hot dogs, and a few other tasty dishes. The cafeteria is the only source of free food. The food is good for about the first month of the academic year, but after that, you'll see the meals get repetitive and unappealing. A typical breakfast consists of bacon or sausage, eggs, grits, hash browns, oatmeal, dry cereal, unripe fruit, biscuits, juice, milk, coffee, and water. Lunch consists of sandwiches, pizza, hot dogs and hamburgers, some type of meat with rice and vegetables, and a salad bar. Dinner is pretty similar to lunch. There might be a different meat, but it's still served with the same rice and vegetables from dinner. 

The cafeteria is not open 24 hours like other universities. If you happen to miss a meal, then you can either pick up some fast food or go to bed hungry. On the weekends, the cafeteria closes early. The best meals served in the café are the turkey sandwiches, chili bowls, chicken tenders with French fries, ham and cheese bagels, grits and biscuits, potato soup, tacos, beans and rice, and bacon pizza.
