a current student here
They don't have that many options. It's like high school cafeteria food. At the Mug (the on campus coffee shop) the workers are lazy and have poor work ethic. The food is terrible, the coffee is terrible, and it's all over priced. The dorm students only get a 10% discount at the Mug where a sandwich and a small coffee can cost you $8 AFTER the discount.
In the cafeteria most of the cashiers have poor work ethic. They don't always tell you how much the food costs before putting their hand out asking for your meal card. You have to ask for a FULL receipt that includes the listed items if you want to make sure that they're not ripping you off (and believe me, they do that often). You shouldn't have to ask, the point of a receipt is to see what you' paid for. The only good thing is that dorm students get a 40% discount at the cafeteria. Unfortunately, if you don't use up all your money on your meal plan by the end of the semester your options are to buy overly priced bulk items or your money will just disappear. You won't get it back, and it won't roll over to next semester.
