    For college food, the food at cal lutheran is actually really good. It can get annoying because you eat it everyday but theres such a good variety that you won't be like sickened over it like some other colleges.

    With the new Ullman commons coming soon, the quality of the food should increase ten fold. Before, students could order from the Cafeteria or the Centrum. CLU is pretty healthy and also offers a wide variety of vegetarian and vegan food.

    Food at CLU is good the cafeteria has a buffet for salad and pizza and the best part of our cafeteria is that we have a touch screen menu that allows you to pick what ever you want on the menu and it is made right on the spot! Just like any other cafeteria some foods are better than others so you just have to try it all!

    I hear they offer a variety of foods, to fit any diet or lifestyle. I like that they allow you to pack to go bags, to fit meals in between classes.

    There is a cafe called the Centrum that does breakfast specialties, and provides salads, sandwiches, pizzas, and hamburgers for lunch and dinner. As of September 2014, there will be a brand new Cafeteria on campus with all kinds of food, and a coffee shop.

    The food is good. There is a Jamba Juice on campus. It will be better when the new caferteria is finished. It will have a lot more amenities. And overall it will just be a cool place to hang out.
