3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The cafe has it's share of good and bad days, the bad days overshadow the good.

Campus Food: The two options to eat on campus are the caf (Blake Center) and the Market. They both are strictly vegetarian. The caf changes up the food from day-to-day, but the options repeat every week, and sometimes, besides "soul food wednesday", you can guess what they're gonna serve. The food is extremely expensive if you're not eating in. 8-9 dollars covers the buffet style of the caf, but if you get takeout, you only get one plate, but the price is still the same. The caf has its good days, but the bad days far outnumber the good days. The workers usually don't know what they're serving and they don't eat the food themselves, so they don't really care. It's just confusing as to why the food is so terrible. I've heard it's because they don't have much experience with vegetarian food, but that's not the issue, because they hardly get the vegetables and starches right.

Campus Food: If you're not vegetarian, you may not like the food. If you are, the food is okay, but the chefs don't have much experience with vegetarian food, especially at the cafeteria. The market and the grill are always great, and surrounding restaurants deliver to Oakwood as well. And if you're vegan, they have an option for you in the caf.

Campus Food: All campus food is based on a vegetarian diet. The food serve in the cafeteria has great variety and although somedays the main food is bad you can always rely on good pizza, soup, salads, and pasta. The market is the best place on campus to eat but students are limited to market points depending on their meal plans

Campus Food: There needs to be more seasoning, and variety of food options.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The campus dining hall is brand new and has a state-of- the-art view. The dining hall promotes healthy eating with vegetarian and vegan dishes. There is absolutely no meat served in the dining hall. However, the vegan line can only be depended on during lunch and is hardly open during dinner. The best meals are breakfast and lunch. The food has its on and off days, but the food is generally healthy and edible.

Students will have to get accustomed to long waits in line if they come to the dining hall, especially if they are late. There is the convenience of eating and socializing in the dining hall or getting takeout. Takeout is a rip-off, though, because you can only eat what you take out, and you can’t enjoy the full luxury of all-you-can-eat. There is no set menu, so what you get each day is really a surprise. The only meal that is really set and dependable is breakfast. On special days during the month of February, Caribbean-style foods are served, and the dining hall is decorated for the special day.
