    Excellent options for vegetarians, vegans and carnivores alike. While it may be a bit pricey, our the majority of our food is locally sourced and organic, allowing for a unique college dining experience.

    The best thing about food here in HSU is that you have options on where you can go eat.

    The town of Arcada is a 10-15 minute walk from campus and if you are a vegetarian or Vegan there is a vegetarian restaurant in town and the majority of restaurants are very veggie friendly. Don't worry carnivores there is plenty of meat and fresh fish being so close to the ocean.

    Wide selection of food just the hours of operation of some of the places are a little funky, so picking the best time to eat will be the only challenge. The food is always great tasting and surprisingly cheap.
