Campus Food: Some of the workers at chickfila are very rude. Other than that ,every thing is fine.

Campus Food: I wish there was more variety and more healthy places to eat that actually taste good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: I really like the wraps from greens2go but I wish that burger studio wasn't priced so high.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It's all pretty decent at first, but after a couple months, it all gets really old.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

UTC is definitely not known for the variety of food on campus. The main complaints among students are the lack of variety and overall taste of the food already offered. The University Center and Crossroads are the two dining halls on campus. The University Center is where students congregate and socialize in between classes, and Crossroads fills up quickly due to the Subway. Quizno's and Chick-Fil-A are also popular choices.

Residents on campus are required to have a meal plan. The best places to go are Subway, Quizno's, Chick-Fil-A, and Grille Works. There aren't many vegetarian or healthy choices, and the salad bar in the UC is pretty plain. Food tastes the best during busy hours, around 12 p.m., because it's all fresh. Subway often has long lines, so be prepared to wait. The UC is the place to hang out during lunchtime, so there aren't a lot of empty tables to be found. Many students take their food to Crossroads to eat because there is more room. The picnic tables outside the UC are a popular spot during warm weather. Many students prepare their own food in their dorms because every dorm room has some type of oven or stove.
