2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: When I started school at LeTU, I was quite healthy and weighed a healthy amount. When I left 2.5 years later my health had deteriorated significantly and I had unintentionally lost 20 lbs. I blame the dining hall.

Bon Appetit really tries but somehow much of the food is 'off'. The protein selection is pretty bad: the meat is almost entirely, always, either blackened, undercooked, and/or incredibly greasy. There are yogurt and eggs (at breakfast only). Salad is sometimes full of grit. Several times I've seen insects (of the crawling variety) on buffet dishes, serving dishes etc. I've had several friends get food poisoning from the caf, which the school nurse tends to not believe. I came down with intestinal parasites at some point while I was at school--could easily have been the under washed salads.

I have seen several friends who were healthy when they went to school develop various health problems while at school. I realize this could be caused by stress…but the dining hall food seems to exacerbate the problem. My (already skinny) roommate lost weight as well…lots of close friends developed stomach issues related to the dining hall food. One friend had to leave campus because he was constantly vomiting or sick…the doctor told him it was the grease in the caf food.

The Hive is pretty good. They serve various Mexican-inspired food and it is more reliably tasty than the Corner Cafe.

My last year I appealed to be removed from the mandatory meal plan. This was a very difficult process that involved multiple doctor's appointments, tests and recommendations. The doc was convinced the food really was making me sick and finally the school let me be off the meal plan. This saved several thousand dollars a year.

Campus Dining: It's...meh. It's better than you would expect from a college cafeteria, but it's just fast food.

Campus Dining: Cafeteria food is not awful, but it is repetitive, so you will eventually get bored about it.
You'll be ok if you are not a vegetarian. If you are, well, good luck

Campus Dining: Although the dining hall provides limited variety of foods that are not always of the best quality, it sometimes leaves something to be desired. However, having experienced dining halls in other campuses, I appreciate the food that the Corner Cafe does provide. Because of the buffet style, creative minds can take the food given to them and create their own meal as fits them best.

Campus Dining: We only have one main dining hall (SAGA) and The Hive (tex-mex) for weekday lunch, and RG's grill and the coffee shop for flex money. The food at SAGA is usually very good for a college and diverse.
