4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There is always a variety of food.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Avoid Evansdale Cafe! If you are hungry and next to the Evansdale cafe either go to brew and gold or walk to engineering and go to Da Vincis. Summit generally has good food and so does Da Vincis. The meal plan resets on thursday morning for students who get 15 or 20 meals per week.

Campus Food: Research meal plan to see which is most fit for each person. All very good and convenient.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The places to go are endless but manly places have the same type of food all the time. Sometimes its nice to mix it up. Some of the better places are far away. The times are very odd, if places were open longer it would be better

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I have only had one or two days when I didn't get things that I liked. There are so many options for food and you can get almost anything at any time of the day!

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are certainly a lot of options available for students to use their meal plans, and the food in the dining halls is all-you-can-eat. If students grow tired of eating the same meal three or four times a week, they can hop dining halls for a change or eat at the Mountainlair. The place on campus with the best meal-plan food is the Mountainlair Food Court. Unfortunately, quantities are small, as they do not follow in the all-you-can-eat format of the other dining halls.

The food served by campus dining is not exactly the healthiest option available. They will prepare vegetarian or other special requests, but they don’t really go out of their way to provide a better choice for students who may be looking for healthier entrees. Freshmen, as well as anyone else living in dorms, are required to have a meal plan but can pick the smallest one if they feel it will be adequate for their needs. Students can also get Mountie Bounty and Dining Dollars to use at places like McCoy’s. Although there are so many options for students to choose from, there is not much satisfaction with the dining halls. Eating in the dining halls is something that is not suggested for more than a year if it can be helped. It is definitely worth the hassle to cook your own meal.

Did You Know?
You can put money on your ID called Mountie Bounty or Meals Plus. This money can be used as flex money if you run out of meals in a week, or if you go to places that don't accept a meal plan like Lyon's Den. You can also use MountieBounty at the bookstore. This can be put on by credit card or check.
