4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I actually really think that our school has a great variety of eating options on campus. One of my favorite places, the marketplace, is my favorite because it is so convenient; whenever I need to just pick up a quick lunch between classes, the marketplace is the best option. Montgoris is also quite nice because they like to keep the foods varied, which I really do appreciate. And there's always options like Taco Bell, Subway, Burger King, Freshens, etc. that are a great value for meal exchanges.

Campus Food: It's really terrible. No way to keep a healthy diet with the food they provide unless you eat the same thing everyday.

3 College Freshman

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The quality of food is supposed to be an important aspect of campus life, but it seems as though the menu selections are limited and prices are on the steep side. Many students seem to find reasonably-priced meals at Taco Bell and the regular burgers at Burger King. The food tends to be good, but it gets tiresome after a while because the selection is basically the same. Also, in the undergraduate dining halls, such as Marillac or Montgoris, the food seems to be tilted toward fast food as opposed to quality meals. Everyone will agree that Law School food is the best and is healthier. The busiest time to attend the dining halls is lunchtime, naturally, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. Commuter students should add money to their card and try not to pay with cash because that will eliminate the tax (which will add up).

Resident students have to get a meal plan and might as well make the best of it. Try to mix up your meals and eat at a variety of on-campus eateries. And by all means, head to the Law School. It’s almost universally agreed that the Law School serves up the best grub.
