    We have Sodexo dining on campus. They offer many kinds of foods aside from the traditional pizza, salad and other college staples. The dining hall has been newly renovated and the quality in food has continued to increase. Buffalo chicken caesar salad wednesday's are a huge hit!

    The one cafeteria we have is pretty good. Minus the breakfast of scrambled eggs and bacon every morning I like everything else. You have a lot of choices. Salad bar, bread counter, wrap station, pizza, healthy and not so healthy. You can easily avoid the freshmen 15 if you choose wisely. As for out of the cafe there's not so much to do in town in regards to eating. Theres a taco bell and a dunkin donuts, a diner, and a few pizza places but that's really it. If you really want food you can drive 10 minutes to Mcdonalds or 30 minutes too keene where theres Five Guys and Applebees and a lot of places. I like not having to many places cause I spend to much money that way.

    The only food available without driving anywhere is the cafeteria and the Raven's Nest (or Pub), both of which are Sodexho. There is not a lot of variety or healthy options.

    When you are eating from the same place every day, you tend to get sick of the food. This is exactly how it is at FPU. The food is good and there is a variety, but you do get tired of eating cafeteria food every day. The dining hall at FPU is expanding and is very nice.
