4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: With the exception of salad creations and subway, there are not many healthy options but overall it is good.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's like a food court in the mall minus all the options

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are many different restaurants on campus, along with dining halls. Also, many sororities offer meal plans to replace the campus meal plan. Flex Bux can roll over from year to year so you're not obligated to use them all your first year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love the restaurants on campus, but I do not have a meal plan.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It could definitely be worst. The worst part is definitely that they close so early on Friday and Saturday and leave students to fend for themselves. I understand it's college but the meal plan should be renamed to "Unlimited Meal-Plan as long as you don't get hungry after 7:30pm on weekends." The food is sometimes good but sometimes I'm scavenging to find something I like to eat. Half the stations close an hour before closing time and going 30 minutes before they close you can only get some bread and maybe water if your lucky. They should either work until it's time to go or fix their schedule they show people to show when each individual station closes so people don't feel ripped off and can plan their schedule accordingly.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students will complain about on campus dining, but ironically, the restaurants and dining halls are usually busy. The loudest complaints are often from underclassmen who are still adjusting to not having a home-cooked meal every night. Upperclassmen will grumble about the food, because they eat it all the time. They’ll eat it, still, mostly out of convenience. Many of the establishments are open late, which is a plus for night owls and late-night revelers. The meal plans get mixed reviews. Students who are just looking for fuel to get through the day would probably do well with a meal plan due to a few buffet-style dining halls and all-you-can-eat options. For those who just grab a quick bite between classes or are interested in healthy dining, you would be better off venturing off campus or waiting for the next care package from home.

The food scene on campus has been steadily improving over the past several years, offering more choices and better quality than in the past. But still, it is cafeteria food and in no way can compare to the food your mom makes at home. You won’t starve, but you won’t be amazed, either. There are also several vendors who pop up on campus around lunch time who offer the obligatory hot dogs, chips, and soda, which can come in handy if you need a quick bite while hustling to your next class.
