3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Jethro's is the place to go. Not many vegetarian options around the campus though.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Since Des Moines is a major city, there are multiple options. Zombie Burger and Spaghetti Works are college student favorites, but they can get old after a while. There are few places within walking distance of campus, but enough so that if you're that sick of dorm food you'll take it. It depends on if you have a mode of transportation for the most part. There are lots of great places out there, but without a car or knowledge of the bus routes there's not really a point.
