3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There are a lot of choices but really the only healthy choice is subway.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: I think any meal plan is a must and it is very convenient for certain students, but I think it would appeal to more people if the food was fresher and there were healthier options. Also, if there was a delivery for on campus! Most of the downfall to on campus food is when you want to eat, but do not want to eat alone in public.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of options on campus but I wouldn't say any of them are quality stuff.
