3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Some halls are great while some are poor.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: We have excellent varieties at the university. For instance, at the student union we have Starbucks, Panda Express, Taco Bell, Subway, and also a Coffee Bean at our main library. The prices are decent and not that expensive.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Its not bad. I just wish they had more options around campus.

4 College Junior

Campus Dining: There is a variety of food on campus and around campus making it easy to find good food.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There are overall healthy options for the students with low-fats or not so much saturated as common packaged or restaurant foods. I would rely on their food if i had to, however, i eat at home.

Campus dining has improved in the past few years and has its perks. The Dining Commons has surprisingly good food. After paying a cover charge, you can choose whatever you want from an array of foods in true Vegas fashion: buffet-style. The Dining Commons is especially suitable for big eaters since multiple trips are allowed. Unless students are taking classes in the art building, the education building, or the biology building, the Sidewalk Café is inconvenient. Burger King, Pizza Hut, and a few convenience store-type items are offered there. Unfortunately, when more than eight or so people are in the building, it gets cramped. Once out of the building, there are umbrella-covered tables, which are a nice place to sit when the weather is decent.

Since the remodel of the Moyer Student Union and the addition of the Balance Café in the Recreation and Wellness Center, new dining options are available that both satiate the need for tasty eats and provide some variety. The SU houses the popular Starbucks, Jamba Juice, and Panda Express, and the Balance Café offers a healthy, multicultural menu as well as smoothies that students love.
