3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Each college has it's ups and downs when it comes to dining options. Overall, the food is pretty decent, and the variety of food choices are pretty great as well.

Campus Dining: If it wasnt for papa johns, I would have starved

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: Campus dining is the absolute WORST!! The food is nasty people have gotten sick because they ate something that was bad. The chef Is terrible I don't understand how they are allowed to serve us this food. We should be receiving better quality food as much money as we are paying for a meal plan. If I could change any thing about my school it would be the Cafeteria ! If I could I would spend 10 million dollars so that that Café could be better for us!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are a variety of choices, you can choose to eat healthy.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The café food is okay, sometimes it can be really nasty and sometimes it can be good. I like how their are options so you can choose what you want to eat. The student union comes in handy a lot, when the café closes, a lot of people go to the union. the union has pizza hut, blimpies, chick-fil-a. there is also McAlister's and Starbucks

Williams Dining Hall is the main cafeteria on campus. On most days, the food will be enjoyable, and overall, the price and selection is excellent for college students. There are many different serving lines in Williams that serve various entrées and sides. In the cafeteria, there is usually a main course line with two choices and sides, a rotisserie line, a grill with burgers and fries, a salad bar, dessert and fruit counter, and hot and cold sandwich lines. There is also a pizza line, which is very popular. Some days, the cafeteria will even switch it up and serve breakfast at dinner, or maybe even serve chicken wings with various sauces! Also, on very special nights in the cafeteria, steaks, shrimp and other exquisite meals may be served. There is also a McAlister's Deli and Starbucks on the first floor of the cafeteria. On the other side of campus in the Memorial Student Union, there is a Chick-fil-A, Pizza Hut Express, and Blimpie's Sub Shop. Freshmen can choose from three meal plan options, including one with unlimited access to the cafeteria. After freshman year, most students adjust their plan to better suit how much they actually go to the cafeteria. Flex dollars are used to purchase food at any of the retail dining establishments on campus. At Simply To Go, students can use their meal plan to choose an entrée, a side item, a drink, and maybe a dessert. Most upperclassmen choose meal plans with the least amount of cafeteria meals per week and the most flex dollars. This way, you can eat in the cafeteria according to your schedule and grab something quick to eat from the Aggie Sit-In.

Did You Know?
The retail dining in the Memorial Student Union is called the "Aggie Sit-In," inspired by the four A&T students who helped spark the Civil Rights Movement by sitting-in at Woolworth's whites-only counter on February 1, 1960, in Greensboro. In the Sit-In, there is a mural highlighting the journey of "A&T Four," as well as photos of other powerful African-Americans during the Civil Rights Movement.
