  • The school has a great dorm, little hot in the summer, so bring fans. If this is your first time being away from your parents you might be saying I…

  • The dorms are nice and comparable to any other university. The security is tight. They make it a point to get to know all students who live on and off campus.…

    Students are limited to one source of food on campus, the limited hours often cause student-athletes, like myself, to miss meals regularly.

    The food isn't great, but it's not as bad as they say. The dining hall was recently remodeled and looks quite attractive. One of the main beefs students have with ARA (the cafeteria) is that, although our meal plans are prepaid, we are not allowed to use our meal plan for guests or bring food out of the cafeteria. It is a bad value for your money.

    Campus food is provided by Aramark, on a lower level of quality than at many places. There is always something edible to eat but not necessarily something you didn't eat yesterday. If you know which stations to go to and which foods to avoid, you will be better off. There were rumors of a re-designed cafeteria and menu, however, which could change everything.

    North Park, has a cafeteria for those who dorm and those who are commuters. I'm a commuter but I have tasted the cafeteria food for those who dorm; it's meh, it could be better. They have a lot of options from pizza to Indian food. They also have different kinds of cereal, ice cream, and a salad bar. Then there's the cafe for commuters called the Viking Cafe, they don't have many options for meals, but they do have a lot for snacks. They serve coffee,Tazo tea, espressos, smoothies, fruit yogurt, a long with different types of muffins, and cinnamon rolls. As for the meals, they're basically sandwiches, paninis, and breakfast wraps. The Viking Cafe can get crowded but you can take the food to go and sit in the lobby or outside in the patio. So overall it's really good, everyone loves the paninis.

    The overall design and quality of the food and cafeteria is lacking.

    If you are a vegetarian, it's a horrible place to get a meal plan. Their breakfast is my favorite especially cereals, bagels and milk. Oops!

    Also being a commuter, I don't dine on campus very often. However, the cafe on the North Park campus is neat and fun. It's a nice place to hang out during the day and has some pretty good light snacks. The only downsides are when something runs out, and the prices, which I think are slightly too high.

    I was told the food is good. But there is also a lot of restaurants and coffee shops across from campus

    The campus dining hall offers a variety of meals, but after a while you might get tired of it since it goes in a circle. Although it does offer all the nutrients you need to function, the taste might be boring for some people. They serve hot meals, sandwiches, fast food, salad and fruit stands. And cereal. In additional, there are many eateries around campus, from Jimmy Jones to Korean. Food is never a problem.

    ARA isn't the greatest. It is nice not to have to make your own food, but sometimes the repetition of the same foods gets old. There are lots of great restaurants around though, and most of them are priced well for a college budget, so it's not like ARA is the only option.
