Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is a multitude of options available when you're tired of cafeteria food and don't want to cook another TV dinner in the microwave. There is a grocery store within easy walking distance of campus, and many students enjoy cooking their own food or desserts in the residence hall kitchens. 

There are also many restaurants within a few miles of the school—everything from classic standbys like McDonald's, Perkins, and TGI Friday's to more unusual eateries  like the Chicken Lounge or Foo Joy. Whether you need energy to study for those midterms or simply want to celebrate with a night out, you can grab a few friends and enjoy any of the wide variety of different foods within easy reach of campus.
