4 College Junior

Campus Food: Being able to use the student card at vending machines was very convenient for a quick snack. The complete meal plan I used in 2012-13 was too much though. I really enjoyed eating at the Cannon Centre, as well as the secret menus at Taco Bell and the multiplicity of options. Depending on what kind of atmosphere you are looking for, different options are available. And BYU ice cream is always a winner.

Campus Food: The campus food is often good. At times I find the prices to be a little too high for the quality of food I'm receiving, so I tend to eat at home more so than often, but when I need something to eat and I'm in a hurry, the food on campus never seems to fail me when it comes to finding something delicious.

Campus Food: I haven't eaten too much food on campus but what I've had has always been good. No real complaints. Nothing spectacular either but just good food. Usually pretty clean and not too bad lines. Good stuff.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The cafeteria food is not generally regarded as being amazing cuisine. But the glory of BYU meal options is that you don't have to live on cafeteria food alone! BYU offers a couple of different meal plan options; the most popular (and slightly more expensive) option is Dining Plus. This option gives students a daily allowance that they can spend where they like on campus. It's great if you don't want to trudge back to the cafeteria for lunch, you can easily grab something on campus at the Cougareat or one of the cafés.

On-campus dining should be enjoyed while on Dining Plus freshman year, because you quickly realize later that without Dining Plus, eating on campus can get really expensive, really quickly. The food is pretty good-nothing spectacular, but nothing revolting. There are not a lot of low-fat options readily available, so beware of the Freshman 15. Everything is really convenient, and location is exceptional, so using the dining plan freshman year is highly recommended.
