Campus Food

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is not very good. There should be more options, and meal plans are too expensive for the little amount of food we actually eat. Instead of weekly meals, every card swipe should be charged to their account which, I think, would be saving money for most people.

Campus Food: The cafe is alright. I don't eat in there very much really. I like the Eagle's Nest.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Eagle's Nest – I love going to the Eagle's Nest because an old friend of mine who used to be my assistant in elementary school now works there so seeing her is fun.

Campus Food: The food here is not great. It used to be worse but it has improved a bit. There is a lot to choose from but it's not great and sometimes it's really terrible. There is a on-campus cafe that's open when the caf is not, but it's really expensive. So if you're broke and you miss dinner, better go mooch off your roommate. That or starve.

2 College Junior

Campus Food: Daily Grub – The food on campus is not very appealing, some of the cooks who serve our food when we ask what it is they cannot even tell us. The selection is minor but a vegetarian dish is always present, a salad bar and a pizza station. There is a cereal area where milk is kept stocked, occasionally. The food is not what one would expect of such a prestigious college. Many students are disappointed daily from the food we are served, that we pay a lot of money for. The variety is skeptical. We have an Eagles Nest that determining the meal plan you chose gives you money to use down in the Eagles Nest, however there food is very greasy. But it stays open later than the cafeteria so if you miss the cafe hours and you still have money on your Eagles Nest card at least you still have somewhere to eat.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

ARAMARK is the food service company the University chooses to go through in order for the students to be fed seven days a week.The Campus Cafeteria is open to all on-campus students who have purchased one of the meal plans, and faculty, staff, visitors, and off-campus students pay at the door or pay with a purchased commuter meal plan. All students living in University residence halls must participate in a meal plan. On weekdays, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served at the Campus Cafeteria; on weekends, brunch and dinner. The dining hall features several food stations where you can choose from a variety of entrées. There's a salad bar, a pizza bar, a dessert bar, a soup bar, and three hot food stations that serve ethnic cuisine, hamburgers, and more.

Downstairs in the Seay Student Center, The Eagle's Nest café serves a variety of hot sandwiches, hamburgers, chicken strips, fries, and soft drinks. The café also offers salads, ice cream, and fresh coffee at the Java City coffee station. Students can pay for selections at The Eagle's Nest using declining balance dollars on their meal plan, or they can pay using credit or debit cards, cash, or checks. At either cafeteria, there is always a choice to eat healthy or vegetarian, but kosher is harder to come by. The Eagle’s Nest does not have as many options for people counting calories or avoiding meat. However, no one goes hungry at the University of the Ozarks.
