Reviews Dorm Life

  • It's average, some of the dorms are very new and others are more like closets with a window, but overall they are fairly nice. Definitely cheaper to live off campus…

    The food here is from Sodexo. Sadly, Fort Lewis signed some long term contract with them after Sodexo helped funded the building of new dorms. The food tastes good for a cafeteria, however, most of the food is really unhealthy. They do have a few relatively healthy options, however, the pickings are slim.

    The food on campus is delicious. For breakfast and dinner, depending on your meal plan, it's a buffet. They have great lunch too. There's a variety of food: hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, pasta, waffles, french toast, omelettes, cereal, salads, fruits, ice cream, soda, and more.

    The food is pretty impressive for a small school coming here I though I would hate the food. When I came to visit the college it impressed me that their food was actually pretty good and you also have the opportunity to cook that if you want to work at the cafeteria which is fun.

    My freshmen year, the food for breakfast and dinner were horrible. I never went to dinner after the first couple weeks of school. Lunch, however, was great, the food was good and the people were very nice that worked there.

    The cafeteria has range of food options. There is a little restaurant called the Rocket and a coffee bar with snacks.
