  • Dorm life at Meridian is very nice. I live in the apartments on campus and I wouldn't have it any other way. All of the dorm parents and housing representatives…

    The main place to eat on campus is in the cafe. Honestly, the food selection there is pretty decent. Every day, there is a variety of healthy foods versus your typical meal. There's a large variety for beverages, also. The only complaint that I would have about the dining services here would be the hours of operation. The meal plans are extremely affordable and are offered to students even if they aren't living on campus.

    The Cafeteria gives a student many options. There is a salad bar, a variety of beverages, the Grill, and then regular cafeteria food. Each day is a different food. The Caf is very spacious and has TVs for students' enjoyments.

    The cafeteria at the college is amazing. They have a large selection and variety of foods. For those living in the dorms, they have meal plans that you can purchase so you can eat every day; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The food is very tasty as well. If you do not like the cafeteria, the city offers many different food choices.
