3 College Senior

Campus Dining: No campus food is good. I feel if more practical and familiar, yet healthy options were made available, I would eat on campus more.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food is okay, depends on where you go and what is being served. Find something you like and stick with it for the next four years.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I'm a commuter so I don't eat at school much. When I do, I prefer the caf. There is a lot more variety and there is always a salad and fruit bar. Tutu's has a Starbucks in it which is nice, but food-wise there's pretty much only sandwiches and they aren't that great.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is not all so great in the caf. But the other options they are great

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Everyone eats in the caf, decent food, normal hours, late night food is hit or miss.

At FSC, there are three different meal plans with varying amounts of meals per week: Type A has 20 meals, Type B has 15, and Type C has 10. However, all three of these plans are on the same system. Students are given a certain amount of swipes on the student ID card, which can only be used at Wynee's Bistro. This is the school's attempt at making sure students aren't using their whole meal plan on Starbucks. Swipes do not roll over from week to week, and there is no reimbursement for swipes you do not use. In addition to swipes, you are given a certain amount of points. These points can be spent anywhere food is served on campus, such as the Grill Master or TuTu's Cyber Café. Points roll over from week to week, but not to the next semester. You do not need a meal plan to eat at any of the places that food is served, but most students have some sort of meal plan if they are living on campus.

In terms of eating at FSC, the food is actually pretty good. There is normally at least one thing that will appeal to you. The only problem is that the food selection can be repetitive sometimes. Plus, there is not a huge variety of kosher, organic, or vegetarian options. Most places where food is served have some sort of healthy food, such as Boca and turkey burgers, fruit cups, and salad bars. There are not any fast food places on campus, unless you count Freshens or Starbucks. This helps prevent the Freshman 15, but if you really need fast food, there are plenty of places near campus. Also, if you want to cook for yourself, your on-campus options are limited. Most dorms do not have access to stoves. If you do need to bake something, most likely you will need to know someone that does have access to one because generally stoves are not available.

Did You Know?
Wynee's Bistro may be an all-you-can-eat buffet, but you are not supposed to take food out. However, no one stops you if you take an ice cream or coffee to go.
