    The food they provide at Alvernia is very good, they have three different cafes around the campus which all serve really good food.

    One main cafeteria, a commuter cafe, a cafe for special events, and a to go style cafeteria open late in the physical education center. It's not momma's food, but it's college, no where has mom's food. Upperclassmen dorms also have the capability of cooking, so if you don't like the cafeteria food, you only have to deal with it for a year or two.

    So much variety. If you go, try a little bit of everything. There is a pizza station, sandwich making station, salad bar, cereal dispensers, fruit, fries, burgers. There is so much to get! If you don't like one thing, try another! Oh and there's also an ice cream cart thingy.

    The food is amazing but there is a wonderful fitness center to help keep students in shape after eating from the never ending array of treats.

    When I went there in the 90's, it was good in the area of food & dining. I have just started back there for my masters degree and have not eaten there as of yet.
