Campus Food: There are different options to chose from on campus which is what I like. You have endless options to chose from in the top café. The top café serve foods that your parents might cook such as pork chop, spaghetti, and many different vegetables. In other dinning halls such as Foot Hillyer your limited options but their food is more seasoned. You can use your meal plan and flex bucks in the Presidential Dinning area and Orange Room.

Campus Food: If you choose a good meal plan you can use meal swipes in certain places other than the cafe. So its all about using the meals to your advantage.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

FAMU’s Dining Services offers a variety of foods to satisfy the taste buds of every kind of eater. There are multiple places on campus where students can choose to dine. The most popular place to eat is the main cafeteria located upstairs in the student union. The cafeteria offers sections including the hot line, which is the special of the day, a deli, salad bar, cereal bar, dessert bar, vegetarian selections, pizza and pasta, hamburgers and fries, and a hibachi-style grill. The downfall to the cafeteria is that seating is limited. Beneath the cafeteria is the Food Court, which has a KFC, Pizza Hut, and deli. The food served here is the same that would be served at the fast food restaurants. The Food Court usually gets crowded around dinner time; many people dine here because they want something different from the upstairs cafeteria.

Orange Room is in the Commons, and offers Magic Johnson Sub Connection, which serves a variety of sandwiches and wraps, and 155 Grill, where students can order things like hamburgers and fries, Philly cheesesteaks, chicken tenders, and grilled chicken sandwiches. Many students enjoy the food here the most, and you’ll usually find that seats here are filled throughout the day. Jazzman’s Café is hidden away on the second floor of Coleman Library and has limited hours. But students do enjoy Jazzman’s smoothies, refrigerated wraps, and baked goods. Jazzman’s busiest time is in the morning, so go in the afternoon if you want to avoid a long line. Students can use their meal plan at all locations; cash and credit cards are also accepted.
