The dining hall gives students few options to choose from, but the food is fairly enjoyable. There are special entrées for the students, spanning with a wide range in food selection. Inside the dining hall, you’ll notice they have a few food bars as well. The chef makes sure there is always a mixture of cuisine to satisfy the needs of the students. The food selections have enough flair to get our mouths watering and wanting more.
Dining services encourages students to give their opinions and suggestions about the menus through a survey, and feedback is taken into consideration when adjusting the menu. Maryville has only one dining hall, but it is in the process of expanding. The expansion on the dining hall will not only give the students more food options but also a larger area for them to socialize.
The Donius University Center, known as the DUC, is a small area where you can get something simple and quick to eat. The prices are also inexpensive, so if you’re low on money or just need a fast meal, that is definitely the best option. The other great parts to the DUC are the healthy options, such as sandwiches, salads, and wraps. Maryville even has a Kaldi’s Café in the University Library. Kaldi’s serves hot and cold drinks and delicious fruit smoothies, as well as desserts like cookies and brownies. The environment is completely mellow and relaxing, with comfortable couches and a TV, and it's a great place to study, listen to music, or just socialize.
