4 College Junior

Campus Food: Depending on your personal preferences, I'd say that most of the places you're going to be eating will be located in The Joe Crowley Student Union--fondly called 'The Joe' by students. Einstein bagels is my favorite 'quick-bite-to-eat' by far, but there's a lot of choices. We have a Jamba Juice and a U-swirl available to us, and a Starbucks. However, if you're looking for great coffee, my suggestion is The Works. They make the best espresso drinks, and all their food is fresh. The staff there is so pleasant too, and the whole place has a steam-punk theme. There's a lot of variety at The Works, but my suggestion is to order a burrito, and add all of the ingredients that you like, and top it with their salsa. It's amazing, so if I have time you'll usually find me there between classes.

Campus Food: Not very many options and everything is too expensive. We are college kids for crying out loud.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food in the Joe Crowley is all so good! But once you try to find food somewhere else it's gross.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The DD is definitely better than last year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The dorm dining hall is not very good at all and the meal plan is overpriced and required. The student union has food options such as Starbucks, Port of Subs, Einstein Bagels, Great Full Gardens, The Cantina, and Panda Express. Great Full Gardens has the healthiest options but all of the places cost a lot. It is best just to pack your own lunch so you can save your health and your money.
