Coming out of high school, the school cafeteria leaves a certain image of mystery meat and coleslaw on a student's mind. The ISU food service works to make meals as scrumptious, delicious, and nutritious as possible. Chartwells is a catering service that also helps out with ISU meals and events.
The student union building is continually full of students taking advantage of on-campus eating opportunities. Students can enjoy socializing, eating, and doing last-minute studying all at the same time. The food comes in a wide variety of warm stuff for the winter and good cold sandwiches for summer meals on the run. For the most part, students like to eat at the SUB because of the convenient location. When students have the time, they are more likely to hit Goody's across the street. Turner Hall is not very popular because mostly students living in residence halls eat there. A hungry student is definitely more likely to be seen eating fast food than eating on campus.
