The food at Oakwood University is definitely making progress because variety was a major issue. All food/dining areas are vegetarian based, promoting healthy eating habits for students, but if your a meat eater this can be a drastic set back. We have a salad bar, a sandwich bar, a hot food line, a vegan line, and the grill in the cafeteria. Though it seems there would be many options sometimes it was not enough and you might end up eating something you did not truly want, but nonetheless things are definitely getting better. What I love about the cafeteria is that they are always awaiting ways to improve; they set up stations where the students voice their opinions on their dining experience and how we would like to make it better. As their means could provide they are making changes and the experience has been much better. There is also a market area which I believe is the better place to eat on campus where they provide a variation of foods, from pizza's to sandwiches to smoothies and teas, but you do have to use market points when you go there versus using your meals for the week. Since you can know what the cafeteria is serving for the day as you walk in, you can make your decision whether or not you will eat there or the market and make a good balance between foods. The market is more convenient because you do not have to sit and eat, but you can decide to take it back to the room or eat quickly before work or class. Both dining areas are clean, innovated, and provide a nice scenery of the campus in their set locations.
