Campus Food

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I wish there were more options. I feel very limited when I eat on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: There is a variety of food to choose from on campus. We have Chic-fil-a, Taco-bell, Starbucks, Subway, Einsteins Bros. Bagels, Jamba Juice, and Blu sushi for some major names. We also have a pizza place and a new spot where you can get your average pickings like burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Then we have one dining hall in South Village. It is a buffet and its 8 Dollars or 1 meal swipe every time you go in. They have a variety of food but being a buffet sometimes during the slow hours of the day the food can start to look iffy. The other food places are great and the prices aren't bad either.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: For the most part I thoroughly enjoy the choices of food and the menu's at SoVi. It would get a five-star rating from me if there was a Burger King or a McDonald's to purchase from too.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food on campus is good. There are some days that may not be so good, but overall its fine. The dining halls are clean and the staff is fine too. I enjoy using my meal plan or flex dollars and getting the special deals!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have an unlimited meal plan which is perfect for me. I like SoVi because it is in a convenient location and I don't really look for that much food diversity. I usually get similar things because I like them. I like having the unlimited because you also get a curtain amount of dinning dollars to use at on campus food places like Subway. When I get sick of the same old thing at SoVi I usually get something else on campus between classes. Just so I have a change every once in a while.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most FGCU students really like the food options on campus. Some students wish there were more options on campus, but overall, FGCU has a great selection. The SoVi Dining Hall has a good variety of food; however, it's not something many are able to eat at every day, as it can get repetitive. SoVi and The Perch are both set up buffet-style, but SoVi is a lot better than The Perch, as the hours are definitely more reasonable. All in all, students have nice dining options.

FGCU offers a lot of other places to eat at on campus other than just the dining halls (SoVi and The Perch). The University has Starbucks, Subway, Jamba Juice, Taco Bell, and Einstein Bros. Bagels, and the school is adding three to five additional places. Florida Gulf Coast University offers a great deal of dining options, whether you would like to enjoy a nice sit-down dinner or perhaps grab a quick bite before class—FGCU has it all.
