3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food and dining options on campus seem like it would be available in every college. The food in the dining hall is average, after a while I got tired of eating at the dining hall. So i decided to change my meal plan and not have one at all. Instead, i decided to buy food from the grocery store and cook. The food isnt that bad but i would prefer to cook my own food plus it saves me alot of money.

Campus Dining: there are not a lot of healthy alternatives and the meals are kinda pricey even with a meal plan

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining hall is a buffet style, and even though it may seem like there is a variety of food, the food never tastes good. Basic (easy to make) foods, such as vegetables, pasta, pizza, and soup are always bland and provide no flavor. Also, if a student runs out of meals for the week, the prices are on the steep end, especially for a college student. The best places to eat, is take out or restaurants (but again, it's pricey).

Campus Dining: Dining on campus is okay. Sometimes the food is really great and other times I don't know what I am eating. But Frostburg's dining hours are a little sketchy because I would miss meal plan hours and would have to wait till the next meal plan. We have a wide variety of foods at the cafe. Also, we have meal equivalencies at the lane center where there is chick fil a, a pizza place, taco bell, a salad place, and a burger place.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The cafeteria food always makes me feel sick. My friends and I always joke that they lace the food with laxatives. They usually change your eating options daily which is nice and their late night dinners are usually a lot of fun. When they have wings at late night the lines go out the door. The food at Lane is pretty good but it begins to get old after a while and if you aren't careful you can spend way too much. I recommend getting a bobcat card rather than a meal plan because that money can be used at places off campus, including Sheetz, grocery stores, and McDonald's.

There's a variety of different meal choices on campus. The Lane University Center includes a Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, and many other options. The food is delicious, but it costs you an arm and a leg. Normally, you can buy a 99-cent burrito at Taco Bell, but here it is almost $2. Lane Center overprices all of its food just so the University can make a profit. Good news is that the Lane Center uses meal plans, but the hours that meal plans are accepted are very minimal and very inconvenient. If you go there before the time meal plans are accepted, you can only pay with cash, debit/credit, or bonus bucks (money that you put onto your student ID).

If you are not interested in the food offered there, then Sub Zero (a deli attached to Sowers Hall) or the Chesapeake Dining Hall are your only other options on campus. Sub Zero makes the food right in front of you—it’s delicious, and it is the healthiest option. Chesapeake has good food, but it cannot always be trusted. Like most cafeterias, the students are not always sure what the food is made of. At all three of these locations, there are numerous options for those students who are vegan, vegetarian, or kosher. Students are able to get delicious salads, wraps, and sandwiches that are healthy and fit any taste.
