Campus Dining: The food is so nasty. It's very repetitive every week.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is not all that good

1 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The hours available are horrible. There is this crazy rule that if you eat after a certain time then you are not allowed to eat the next meal. The food is very repetitive. You are most likely to eat chicken four days out the week. There is no other use for the meal plan.

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.

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.
