    the food is just ok. there are not very many healthy options. lots of burgers, fries and tater tots, but not very many vegetables and fruits. the food gets old after a while eating the same thing over and over.

    On, and off campus dining are both delicious! El Gato in the SURC, is byfar, my favorite on campus restaurant! :) These places also provide student employment, which is great for us broke college kids! :)
