Campus Dining: Tyrone's chicken is the bomb.

Campus Dining: Sometimes dining hall has great food sometimes it doesn't.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: When you first get to Berry it is very exciting to eat in D-hall and at Valhalla, but after eating there every single day it gets repetitive and boring. Theres a good thing there are plenty of places off campus to eat. So you'll be fine.

Campus Dining: Food is pretty okay. Some things are AMAZING, like the Chicken Parm. But they have the same brunch food on Saturdays and Sundays. Also, the breakfast items are also the same. Food on weekends is just terrible because it's the same. But it's great that there's to go boxes so I can take my food with me to another class if I'm in a hurry. However, there is the great option of making your own food with the hamburger station, salad bar, sandwich bar, etc. The food is good overall, it can just get old. However, the dining hall is open to suggestions and are very good about listening to them.
What I love though is that we also have Valhalla Foodcourt which offers a Burger Studio, Chick-fil-a, Habanero's Southwest, and Montague's Deli. Nearby is also Starbucks so I appreciate having those other options right on campus in the same building. Even better is the mini convenience store where you can buy frozen foods, milk, chips, sushi, etc.

Campus Dining: The dining hall is satisfactory, but serves the same food often. Valhalla, which includes a Chik-fil-A, a deli, a taco bar and a small pre-packaged food area is very high quality, but far too expensive. Freshmen must have the unlimited meal plan (which is rather expensive), but really does help to save time and effort.

All students are required to have a meal plan—even commuters. The dining options are not vast, as there are only two places where students can dine. The RFoC Dining Hall was recently renovated and is now almost twice the size it used to be, but it's still crowded, and the food quality has yet to improve. Berry has made initiatives to become more health-conscious, but there are not too many options for vegetarians and vegans, who would prefer not to eat the same thing every day.

The dining hall is accessible by ID cards, and most people go around 11 a.m., so if you are in a rush, the to-go option is best for you. One drawback is upperclassmen cannot come and go as they please and are only allowed one meal per time slot, which is an attempt to keep students from running out of meals too early in the week. The other on-campus dining area is called Valhalla, or "Viking Heaven." Valhalla offers sushi, a deli, a burger station, and Mexican food. The items are overpriced, and the quality is not the best, but it is easier to access if you are in a rush. Students typically use their flex bucks here and at the two coffee places: the Berry Bean’ry, which is located in Krannert, and Java City, which is located in the library on campus. In addition, all dining options are not available 24 hours; the dining hall closes at 8 p.m. and Valhalla at 11 p.m.
