3 College Student

Campus Food: It's pretty good, but the menu gets boring after you realize that the menu is the same every week

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: I haven't eaten there very often, so I can't attest to every choice. But the meals are pretty good

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls are terrible in my opinion. Even if you find something you like, you'll end up eating it so much until you hate it. The only tolerable option is Rebeccas and they close by 5 and is usually so crowded that it can take you 30 minutes or more to get food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Good variety, friendly staff, but super expensive when you actually look at how much each meal costs on the meal plan.

3 College Student

Campus Food: When you first get here it all looks amazing. And people who visit think it's great. It is true that there are a lot of options, but with any dining hall you get bored of the food really quickly

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The food on campus is pretty good. There are choices for the health-conscious, and kosher dining plans are available at no extra charge. With three dining halls, students can mix up their meals so they don’t get bored. As a freshman, you are required to have a meal plan if you’re living in the residence halls, and since you won’t have a kitchen your freshman year, you’ll be spending a lot of time in the "D-hall," as it’s commonly known. It’s fun to go with a group of friends and get waffles or omelets for brunch or a grilled chicken sandwich and fries for lunch. Some people complain about the food, but they’d be hard-pressed to find a college campus with much better options. One of the recent additions is the Xhibition Kitchen located in Stetson West, which periodically holds food demonstrations. The newest cafeteria in Parcel 18 also features great choices, such as freshly made sushi, all-day breakfast, and brick-oven pizza.

Some students swear by the dining halls so much that they’ll even spend much of the day there, chatting with friends, doing homework, and, of course, eating! There are always the staples such as pizza, burgers, sandwiches, pasta, and salad, but tacos and Mexican food are often served, too, in addition to roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy.
