3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not the healthiest food on campus, but there are plenty of options and varieties to suit your own needs and wants!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dining commons are not as horrible as advertised by students, while it is often my last resort, it is a good one at that. Try to schedule out some sort of spending quota if you want to have dining dollars for the entire semester, it gets old really quick when you have to always spend your own money on food. A lot of fast food is on campus so beware the freshman fifteen and visit the gym regularly. Pricing is what you see everywhere else, so it should not be a surprise when you're buying stuff in the Student Union. When off-campus, ask about student discounts and save yourself a couple of bucks.

Campus Food: Food in the DC does not have much variety. It's pretty much the same thing, there are times (hardly) that they have other options.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Eating at the DC is very hit or miss when it comes to the food selections. Sometimes there is nothing good to eat other than salad or cereal, which can get old after awhile. The staff is very nice and definitely has to endure a lot of unnecessary complaints. You also, have to be careful about the times you decide to go to the DC because you may not be able to find a seat and a to go box is a one time fee of five dollars or if you decide to leave at eat somewhere else, you essentially wasted a meal swipe. The food on campus outside of the DC is very good and has a wide variety, however they close fairly early during the week and some are not open on the weekends. If you choose not to eat at the DC or anywhere else on campus, there are a ton of places nearby that you could walk to if you do not have a car.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food establishments on campus are pretty good overall.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Campus dining has improved in the past few years and has its perks. The Dining Commons has surprisingly good food. After paying a cover charge, you can choose whatever you want from an array of foods in true Vegas fashion: buffet-style. The Dining Commons is especially suitable for big eaters since multiple trips are allowed. Unless students are taking classes in the art building, the education building, or the biology building, the Sidewalk Café is inconvenient. Burger King, Pizza Hut, and a few convenience store-type items are offered there. Unfortunately, when more than eight or so people are in the building, it gets cramped. Once out of the building, there are umbrella-covered tables, which are a nice place to sit when the weather is decent.

Since the remodel of the Moyer Student Union and the addition of the Balance Café in the Recreation and Wellness Center, new dining options are available that both satiate the need for tasty eats and provide some variety. The SU houses the popular Starbucks, Jamba Juice, and Panda Express, and the Balance Café offers a healthy, multicultural menu as well as smoothies that students love.
