4 College Senior

Campus Dining: Good variety. You can chose a dining hall based on what you are feeling, though all have an average variety. All are walking distance from each other. Food is quite good but not horribly healthy. Some schools have the freshman 15, Mizzou has the "Mizzou 22."

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is good, but it does get tiring eating the same things day after day.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I really don't enjoy it doesn't please me at all.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining halls are very efficient. They serve the students at appropriate time intervals and they strive to meet the needs of every student. Allergies and preferences are always taken into consideration.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Mizzou has surprisingly good food. Dobbs is definitely my favorite. My only complaint is the hours suck and close early (excluding rollins late night)

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.
