3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Almost always the same menu at the dining hall. Not much variety.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I like Weisenfluh but it doesn't use meal swipes

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is good and there is a great variety.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The on campus dining is okay. Some of the places to eat are better than others. The one that I think is better is more expensive than the normal dining hall, but it's good so I tend to eat there more often.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: Our dining halls have all been recently renovated and offer a great variety of food options. All facilities are clean and environmentally friendly. We also have large franchises located on campus (Quaker Steak & Lube, and Starbucks) which is a nice touch. Our buffet-style cafeteria is the best I've been to on any college campus and our other locations are also amazing. I love the dining here at SRU.

Let’s face it, campus dining at any university is not first-class gourmet, nor is it expected to be. Slippery Rock is no different—you can find the typical cafeteria à la carte buffet at Weisenfluh and Boozel dining halls, and fast food options at Rocky’s Grille. The No. 1 place to eat on campus is Cyberfresh, a section of Rocky’s Grille, which serves highly recommended wraps and fresh soups. For students who don’t have the time to sit down and eat, Rocky’s Grille offers takeout so students can eat on the go. Rocky’s is also open later than the dining halls and doesn’t close between meal periods, so no matter what your schedule, you’ll always be able to get something to eat.

At the Weisenfluh C-Store, an on-campus convenience store, students can grab bagged lunches to go, as well as quick snacks. However, do not be surprised if the sandwiches, cookie, or apple in your bagged lunch are not completely fresh. Boozel Dining Hall was renovated and re-opened for the spring 2009 semester. The improved dining hall offers more seating, a modern, sleek atmosphere, and a better food selection. One of the major concerns that students have with their meal plans is the cost. Meal plans are expensive anywhere, but if students here do not use a meal block, that meal vanishes and can't be used at a later time. The University, after hearing many complaints from students, explains that adjustments are made in pricing to make room for missed meals, but SRU students just aren’t buying it.
