3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Dining on campus is helpful if you have a meal plan in order to go to the cafeterias and use block meals to discount food prices. For commuter students, the options throughout the day are great to grab food in-between classes or during study sessions. Unfortunately, for on-campus students, there were very few options for late-night eating. Recently the hours of operation for a handful of places have shortened, and many students are still in class or lab when they close. The best places would be Starbucks and Provisions on Demand. The hours are both great and open on weekends with many choices for students.

Campus Dining: The Perry is good until you've been on campus too long. There are some good fast food places in the Union like Chick-fil-a, Pizza Hut, and Panda Express. Using block meals after 4:00pm is really helpful! The P.O.D. Market is super expensive, but extremely convenient.

Campus Dining: There are a wide variety of options. I have been to the main Perry Cafeteria for lunch and on some days it is a desirable place to go and on other days I just feel like grabbing a Subway located next to the Perry. Perry does have food options to meet everyone's needs from a salad bar to Southern home cooked-style meals to gluten free options. The Union has Starbucks, Panda Express, Chik-fil-a, Pizza Hut, etc. There is a MSU bakery with MSU ice cream, desserts, and Starbucks coffee. They are building a new cafeteria on the south side of campus, and hopefully that will be a great place to go! A great tip to know is that after 4pm, you can use your meal plan to get Chick-fil-a or Panda Express so you don't have to use your flex dollars.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining is okay. There's not much to choose from especially after 9pm. Once 9pm hits, it's either Burger King or get some food from a restaurant off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is very good at times like breakfast and lunch but dinner could be better and have a wider variety of foods because the menu is somewhat limited based on what the provide weekly.
