    The food has many selections, but it can be the same type of selection for a couple of days. Most of the chefs prepares the food well but there are a couple that constantly burn the food. Overall the food is good and when you are hungry for breakfast, you can cook your own food at 6 or 8'o'clock at night. There's a healthy food section and a section to cook your own food if a student gets tired if his or her food.

    The food here is excellent and is top of the notch. I am a commuter here but when I do decide to have some food at the campus there is a great variety available. Not only meals from the cafeteria but also in this restaurant called Jeepers where they serve many hot meals to the students and faculty members there, as well as a variety of vending machines.

    Not good. Never see many people in there. Jeepers ( on campus dining) is run by the same people but it is has much better food. You can use your flex dollars or pay cash.

    The gourment dining experience is not that great but that is with every school. After while you do kind of get used to. There is a main cafeteria which is buffet style and a place called Jeepers were you can go and buy whatever you want like snacks.
