3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I strongly dislike that freshman have to have the unlimited meal plan, and that meal plan does not include the B&B. Also, there are no off campus meal plan options, whereas many schools such as the University of Akron have those options.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining is horrible. Students have one option, the cafe and it's not even open 24hrs. The options are very limited. It's horrible.

Campus Dining: They have some really great choices, but it can get a little repetitive.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Each meal that you have at the university is basically a buffet. You can eat until you're full. The price of each meal is under 8 dollars. 3 buffet meals in one day for a price under 24 dollars. It is honestly outstanding.

Campus Dining: The food is ok but there really aren't many healthy choices and the salad made me sick so I do not eat that anymore.

Perhaps the best way to describe campus dining is "mediocre." With only one dining hall on campus, there's really no way to please everyone, though Mount Union's food service provider AVI tries its hardest. Kresge Dining Hall offers various options like the deli, grill, homestyle, and international stations, but menus can get repetitive and students complain that the most popular dishes aren't offered frequently enough. Vegetarians may find it especially difficult to meet their dietary needs without eating the same thing every day. The food isn't inedible or even necessarily "bad," but it can get boring. Kresge and the KHIC Coffee Bar (open mornings only) are the only places meals can be used, and Dining Dollars can only be spent at Campus Grounds (also known as the B&B Café). On the plus side, students love features like the made-from-scratch desserts and Late Night Snack in Kresge, muffins from the KHIC Coffee Bar, and the smoothies at Campus Grounds. Plus, the food service workers are some of the nicest people on campus.

All students living in residence halls or campus houses are required to have a meal plan, but there is at least some flexibility in choosing your plan after freshman year. Three options are offered: unlimited, 14 meals a week with $50 in Dining Dollars, or 10 meals a week with $100 in Dining Dollars. Commuters and students living in campus townhouses and apartments are not required to buy a meal plan, but do have the option of purchasing one of the three standard plans, or a block plan of 50 or 100 meals per semester. Students say that meal plans are pretty average in value and quality, but having one is usually the most convenient way to eat on campus.
