3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The on-campus dining hours of availability could be better. With the dining hours ending so early,
it leaves many students hungry, thus having to result to a convenient store or fast-food restaurant.
There isn't much of a variety of places to eat on campus, but the places are available, the food is pretty good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is ok because I've had better but for college food, the food is exceptionally great. I love that there are so many places to choose from on campus. There is a bistro in the library, a small cafeteria on the other side, the big café on the other side, a Chick-Fil-A, Pizza Hut, and a Tropical Smoothie in the student centers. There is also another eating area near where I live. Spartan Bucks have to be used wisely and can be used at a variety of places around campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is pretty average; about like any local fast food place. I have yet to see any ethnic food options on campus. Most of the food is some rendition of greasy American food. The healthy options are really only available in the cafeteria. There's one location that stays open until midnight, but the rest of the dining locations close at 8:30 on weekdays and 7:30 on weekends. And meal plan hours run in such a small time window.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Thursday is soul food and Friday is fish

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food can be better cook.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

There are a variety of places to eat at on campus, including the Student Center, which is equipped with Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut Express, and Tropical Smoothie. The Student Center is a student favorite. Scott-Dozier Dining Hall is referred to as the “Big Café” by students, while the West Dining Hall is referred to as the “Small Café." The Spartan Station is like a food court, featuring Austin Grill, Spartan Subs, and Market Carvery. Bodega is a place where students can get necessities (detergent, toiletries, and health products), snacks, and sandwiches.

Each place has its own set hours of operation. Also, some are places where students can use meal equivalency, flex dollars, or cash. The prices vary for each facility and product a student wants to purchase. The quality of the food, products, and services differ at each establishment, but generally each eatery keeps students coming back for more. Though a meal plan cannot be used at the Bodega, students can use flex dollars and get any item they choose without having to spend their own cash.
