2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not very many choices and everything is overpriced. Even the fast food chains on campus are priced above what they usually are off campus.

Campus Dining: We have two main dining facilities on campus. We also have alot of independent places, like Burger King, Subway, Chick-filet, Dominos Pizza etc. If you get tired of these places there are more within walking distance or you can take the shuttle

Campus Dining: The meal plan is awful and quality of food is ok at best. Where we excel is in the number of options of fast food and healthy options available.

Campus Dining: I have eaten some of the food for the marketplace, and it wasn't my favorite, I instead make my own food and survive on my own.

Campus Dining: If you don't have a meal plan, prepare to pay a LOT to eat in the dining halls. Although the food offered in the dining hall isn't super amazing, there are some pretty cool perks to having a meal plan. You can get free food at other restaurants on campus!
