3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It is not that bad, a lot of choices and themes

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is good usually when there is something that I like to eat. They usually have a variety of 5 different things to eat per meal, mostly lunch and dinner. They could have more of a variety by switching up the food they serve more often.

Campus Dining: In the dining center, they do not cook their food very well because there is not much flavor.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I am a commuter at Thomas College, so honestly I don't spent too much time in the dining hall, otherwise known as the Dog Pound. The experiences I have had in there though have been great. There is always a variety of food, and always something to eat between classes if I am not able to go home. However, I hear a lot from my friends that do live on campus that the food gets very old after awhile, and one thing they always look forward to is a home cooked meal.

Campus Dining: Great Food to Eat – The food at Thomas College is great. There are many different options each day and they are all affordable.

The Dining Center usually has a pretty wide variety of choices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is buffet-style with a salad bar and fountain drinks. The dessert table is also very full with pies, cookies, and ice cream, which are very popular with the students. The salad bar is very fresh and always well stocked, and if you decide to make yourself a sandwich, there are tons of different kinds of breads, meats, cheeses, and condiments.

For breakfast, there is a chef on hand who will cook you an omelet the way you like, and the kitchen staff is always monitoring each food item to make sure everyone is getting exactly what they need. Students have to swipe their ID cards for each meal, but it is all-you-can-eat. The Dining Center is also open just during traditional meal times. For example, it is open three hours for breakfast, but only about two hours for dinner.
