    Benedict College, just finished an amazing cafeteria, there are many different foods to choose from and the cafeteria is a great spot to hang out with friends while dining. The atmosphere of the cafeteria is pleasant, and comfortable. You can eat three times a day and it is still expanding.

    The cafeteria food is nasty. The caf it's self is disgusting. They are always running out of food or the food just doesn't look right. Their hours suck. The best thing in there is probably a sandwich. Everything in there makes you do a number 2 in the bathroom. The soda machines are broke so they make their own Kool-Aid, and lemonade or you have water to drink.

    Well, the food is not bad. The cafe has been in construction for almost 3 years, but they should be finished here soon! I have high hopes for the cafe!

    The food could be way better, however there is much variety offered on a daily basis during all three main meals of the day. In some cases the dining hours may be extended to the students' schedules as a whole.

    Food and dining, is average in our cafeteria. Coming in from different time zones you will have to learn to adapt to the eating schedules. Other than that our cafeteria staff makes sure we get the 3 required meals. There is also surrounding food restaurants just in case you decide to not attend the cafeteria.

    Although the food could be better, the staff work around the clock to prepare the best meals they can and are very friendly and respectful of students and teachers.

    Greek life can be fun, but remember your purpose here! Get your education! There are too many 6-8 year Greeks here who are too busy trying to stroll at every event instead of get that degree!
