    There is not that much of a choice with what there is to eat in Burpee dining hall. There is more of an option at this hall, as it is the only hall on campus. Even though the food is not ideal, there is always something to eat. Most people choose to eat at the Lion's Den (which is like the cam pus lounge area). The food there is so much better, but it is more expensive.

    being a vegetarian, i'd have hoped a liberal arts college would have catered to my kind more but overall there menus are decent sized and the food cards give you (i think) 3 meals a day.

    food on campus is dull and there is not a large variety. you are better off driving ten minutes into rockford to get a decent meal.
