Campus Food

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't like how it's all restaurants providing the meals rather than a standard dining hall. I would prefer real food every once in a while.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Food is great. Can be expensive

3 College Student

Campus Food: The wellness kitchen is the best place to eat. It's very healthy and it's all you can eat. The bad thing is if your not an athlete then it's expensive. lunch or breakfast is reasonable since it's all you can eat but dinner is a little ridiculous. Still it's worth it. The village dining is really good also to and reasonably priced. The rest of the dining is like eating fast food and sooner or later you will get tired of it.

Campus Food: A meal shouldn't cost $10-$16. Also, what are we supposed to eat on weekends. Throughout the year Terrell (the dining option closest for me) had its hours reduced until it was eliminated entirely. If you want us to eat there, it has to be open. I wish I could put $500 on meal plan and then buy groceries for the rest of my food.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Opinions vary when it comes to eating on campus. Many students enjoy the food that AU has to offer. Terrell Hall and The New Student Center are the two most popular places for students to eat on campus. There are also several little snack and coffee stands throughout campus if you need a meal on the run.

While both Terrell Hall and War Eagle Food Court offer a variety of foods, some students still prefer to eat off campus. This is made easy by being able to use their TigerCard at almost all restaurants in the downtown area. Unfortunately, meal plans can only be used on campus.
