    food and dining could be way better. that's the only problem I have with the school. the students that live in the dorm's food isn't as good as the students that pay. I personally don't think its fair.

    Breakfast and Lunch are provided in the cafeteria. Students attending are allowed to purchase a meal plan that provides food for a semester. The food provided has a wide range of options to choose from.

    The food on campus is delicious. Everything is so good. My favorite would be the Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches because their so huge and it really fills me up especially on days when I have two to three classes on that day.

    I am an evening student; therefore the dining area is closed when I attend classes. The bookstore is open late and has a variety of snacks and microwavable foods. Although food is not being served in the evening hours, the dining area is open for microwave use, and to dine; the environment is clean and comfortable. Vending is located all over the campus, so food and drink is always available.
