3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: For my experience, dining my first year was pretty good. The dorm I stayed in had a dining hall attached to it, so getting food in a pink was't very difficult. There are multiple dining halls that have late night options and they're ally pretty cheap with a dining plan, which in itself is expensive at around $3000 depending on which you get. There are options for students living and off campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I rarely ate on campus since I lived elsewhere, but I would typically eat at Plaza or The Mark depending on where I was at. I liked the grill at Mark Twain mainly because of the woman running it. She was always excited to talk to everyone in line, she would also share stories about her family. At plaza I would typically stick to the Deli area, unless they had something that caught my eye while walking in.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Usually good food and options, but if you don't use all of your meals, you don't get that money back

Campus Dining: The food selection is great but it's not the healthiest to eat everyday

3 College Student

Campus Dining: I like the meal options alright at the cafeteria's around campus. They're like most school lunches with the the same options, just healthier in my opinion. As long as it gives me something to keep me from being hungry in the middle of class, I'm fine with it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

On-campus dining is the reason for the "Mizzou 22." Many other college students gain the Freshman 15, but at Mizzou, students like to take it a step further. Mizzou has a lot of different dining halls: Rollins, Dobbs, Eva J's, and Plaza 900—to name a few. Students prefer to eat at Plaza 900 and Rollins because they are the newly renovated dining halls and seem to offer more food options, but the others provide the same quality of food.  

Other than the dining halls, MU's campus has a Subway, but in May 2011, the University took the McDonald's out of Lowry Mall. Students can walk downtown and have a different variety of food. Chipotle, Shakespeare's Pizza, Campus Bar and Grill, Noodles & Company, and Domino's are just some food places located right off campus.
