There is no simple way to describe the food at Catholic University. On one hand, it is convenient and abundant, and students with a meal plan can eat as many times as they want for however long and as much as they want. The quality, however, is another story. There is no accuracy when it comes to the quality of food at the University, where the eggs are bland and the chicken tends to feel like rubber. You can always rely on a stable salad bar, hearty sandwich station, good ol' milk and cereal, and simple hamburgers and french fries. But after a while, your body can no longer take it.
The main problem is that the hot meals and "daily specials" are put out for a limited time, so many times students are stuck with pizza, burgers, fries, and strawberry ice cream. It may seem like a college student's paradise, but eventually it gets old. The soda fountain tends to spew flat soda, the ice cream needs at least three hours to thaw out, and every few weeks or so there is a serious plates and/or utensils shortage. Basically, the management needs to step up on the food. There is enough variety to help students get by, if—and only if—the food is actually laid out for students to enjoy.
