Campus Food: The weekend hours are bad for early risers.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I haven't actually eaten on campus yet, but I see the variety and it looks very pleasing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the best food, but it suffices.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: You cannot expect a five-course meal, but the dining options at JSU are very tasty and creative. WoW is good, but very expensive, so pace yourself. The Diner is alright, but their food gets old very quickly and there isn't much variety. It's also rather dry. Jazzman's is fine, if you're willing to trek to the library or you're already there. Your safest bet is the dining hall, during actual breakfast, lunch, and dinner, where the variety and staff are nice.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

JSU has a pretty good variety of places to eat. However, use caution when choosng a meal plan. Most freshmen get tired of the dining hall in a hurry, especially when they pick a plan that has them eating there twice a day. Overall the food is very good, and meal plans are very useful if you will be eating on campus a lot.
