Cafeteria food is one of those things that every incoming freshman dreads. However, UCSD students report that it is not that bad. It may be tasteless and unexciting, but it’s not horrible. There are many different cafeterias on campus, each with different kinds of food, so students are sure to find some place they enjoy. Even if students absolutely hate dorm food, they are able to survive on it for the year. Experiencing cafeteria food makes trips home with good home-cooked meals that much more appreciated.
There are also many choices for students who don’t have a meal plan or wish to avoid the cafeterias. In Price Center, there is almost every kind of fast food, including Burger King, Subway, Jamba Juice, Round Table Pizza, and Panda Express. Another place to check out on campus is Porter’s Pub, which has sandwiches, beer, and excellent curly fries. For a healthier option, the Food Co-op has vegetarian and health foods that are usually good and very cheap. It might take some work, but there is good and healthy dining on campus.
