Campus Dining: Tonnes of options and variety and chances to create something new.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: From my experience with other college dining options, I am very happy with what Knox has to offer. We have so many general food options, but then so many specialized options too. If I decide one day that I'm going to go vegan, it's pretty easy, and there are many options for that. And we have comment cards, upon which we can suggest new food entres, new drinks, new anything really, and the Dining Services people are lovely and receptive to these comment cards, often offering a trial run of a potential new dish.

Campus Dining: There are two main cafeterias. The Hard Knox Cafe is a typical buffet style cafeteria, the main hot dish served changes every meal. This cafeteria also has a soup/salad bar, a sandwich bar, a make-your-own-pizza bar, a stir-fry bar, and a grill where they will serve up everything from black bean burgers to grilled cheese. There are a ton of vegan/vegetarian/dairy/gluten free options. The other main cafeteria is the Oak Room, which serves specialized/themed meals (breakfast for dinner night, taco bar, etc). Students choose their own ratio of meal to dining dollars in their meal plan and can change that ratio every term. The meals work in the cafeteria and it's one meal swipe for all-you-can-eat buffet. The dining dollars work in the Gizmo and the on campus convenience store. The Gizmo is a grill/cafe on campus that serves food a-la-carte and has a huge variety of delicious fried things. The cafeterias close between every meal and the gizmo is open from 10 am-1 am.

Campus Dining: Aside from the fact that our convenience store is a little bit overpriced, I have never had an issue with dining services. I cannot speak for people with special dietary needs because I do not focus much on my diet, but I find there to be a suitable variety of good options. There is usually something of interest in the cafeteria, and if there is not, there are other options - the "Gizmo" which serves many grilled and fried foods for flex dollars, and the convenience store, which has an array of available food options.

Campus Dining: There are so many options in the Hard Knox Cafe that you can practically make your own recipes. There's a lot of quick options for people on the go too. I also love the meal plan and flex dollars. It's so easy to add or change.
