3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The campus dining is okay at certain times. Sometimes the food in the cafeteria is good at times. However after a while people get bored with the caf food. We do have a little place called Randle's on our campus. It's like a little dining hall. Randle's makes up for the caf in so many ways. We can get something quick and delicious then go on our way. Their chicken wraps, popcorn chicken, chicken nuggets, and chicken quesidillas are amazing.

Campus Dining: Between a C and C – The food is definitely not the best thing on campus

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food here would be better if the cafeteria people would learn how to cook things right. I don't want to have to eat a burger every single time I come in to the caf. The cakes are ALWAYS dry. I find that the only good options are the unhealthy foods. Sometimes the lettuce tastes like pesticides. On the weekend the food is just...terrible. Centenary needs to get their food together because I'm paying $2000 for crap.

Campus Dining: How Exactly Is the Food at School? With regards to many factors, my overall views of dining and food at my school are especially pleasant.

Niche User

Campus Dining: Campus food is tolerable as far as taste is concerned. There is a severe lack of healthy food options on campus.

The general consensus is that the food sucks. For one, there is absolutely no variety. There are a total of two places to choose from: the cafeteria and Randle's Place. The cafeteria generally has pizza, a sandwich and salad bar, hamburgers, a stir-fry dish, and some other option that varies. The food, while not terrible, gets old pretty fast. After two weeks, you'll know the entire menu and really look forward to taco day. Cafeteria workers often try to brighten the atmosphere by having theme meals. Don't be surprised if one day you walk into the cafeteria and the workers are wearing sombreros while mariachi music plays in the background.

Unfortunately, even though the presentation may change, the food always tastes the same. The vegetarian offerings usually consist of salad, cheese pizza, and a mushy or undercooked vegetable. Randle's also has little variety. While freshmen aren't inherently required to get a meal plan, if you live on campus you must get a meal plan, and most freshmen live on campus. The meal plans don't vary much. If you're a freshman or sophomore, you have the choice of having 15 meals per week in the Caf and $125 at Randle's, or 12 meals and $250. When you reach your junior year, you can buy a lower-priced meal plan with only seven meals per week and $150. It's generally a good idea to get more money toward Randle's because you'll rarely use all the Caf meals, and Randle's is open all day. Though you'll get used to the food and it's reasonably healthy, make sure to put some money aside to visit a restaurant once in a while. It's the only way you'll survive.

Did You Know?
The school holds a crawfish boil every spring to welcome prospective students. If you've never had crawfish, it's a Louisiana delicacy that you must try at least once. When you have your first tray of crawfish, make sure you have an expert nearby. There's an art to peeling crawfish that only an accomplished consumer can teach you.
