4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love Liu's House of Sushi.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is generally great because everything is generally close to the campus itself

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are at least 50 different places to eat withing 20 minutes of the campus and 25 within walking distance

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We are surrounded by a lot of fast food restaurants (like Mcdonald's, Burger King, and Wendy's) and dining restaurants (like Friendly's and Perkin's) that students can easily walk to-10 mins tops. The cost is pretty average, unless you go to other dining options such as Pistachio Bar and Grille. A lot of students LOVE going to Menchie's frozen yogurt. We hold a lot of fundraisers there for school clubs and athletics.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: No enough restaurants near to the campus, I typically just stay at home and cook, occasionally I go out to eat somewhere but it is not anywhere that is right down the street from the school.

There is a multitude of options available when you're tired of cafeteria food and don't want to cook another TV dinner in the microwave. There is a grocery store within easy walking distance of campus, and many students enjoy cooking their own food or desserts in the residence hall kitchens. 

There are also many restaurants within a few miles of the school—everything from classic standbys like McDonald's, Perkins, and TGI Friday's to more unusual eateries  like the Chicken Lounge or Foo Joy. Whether you need energy to study for those midterms or simply want to celebrate with a night out, you can grab a few friends and enjoy any of the wide variety of different foods within easy reach of campus.
