    There is a decent amount of variety for on campus dining (several coffee shops, a grill, a deli, a froyo place, a pizza place, a Mexican place, and an Indian restaurant is coming soon); however, all of these options are significantly overpriced. The only traditional 'college dining hall' can be paid for with swipes from a meal plan, and although a lot of the food tastes good, there are virtually no health-conscious, vegan, or vegetarian options.

    The food on campus isn't very great so it is recommended to eat off campus. The pizza place and mexican restaurants are decent food and offer some alcoholic beverages.

    The food is really good, but you kinda get tired of the same things all the time no matter how good they are.

    Not going to lie the place is great until you get tired of the food. It is buffet style dining for all three meals of the day. You have a certain amount of swipes that you can use per semester and they don't roll over. Additionally, one gets $125-$250 extra to spend on snack foods depending on what package one purchases. In the cafeteria you go in and order whatever you want and they will make it if they have the ingredients. There is a grill, pasta bar, salad bar, sandwich bar, Mexican grill, and the entree section (which changes everyday for dinner only).

    When it comes to food, theres no shortage here. They have a buffet style dinning hall where they offer dozens of different entrees, salads, soups, and desserts. The choices are endless and the food is pretty darn tasty too.

    The food is not that bad. The meal plans are very flexible and some restaurants are sort of cheap. Their is a subway in campus and the sandwiches are good.
