    I am a vegetarian and while they do have choices for vegan/vegetarian everyday like they claim, it is often times the same thing for vegan and not a large difference for vegetarian. They have the same sandwiches for lunch and dinner every day and they maybe change once a semester. They have daily changes to the buffet type area, but they are not always vegetarian.

    In my school there is a restaurant that the students in their last year of school cook in. The food there is not too expensive and the experience in my opinion is amazing. If I could I would dine there everyday, because everything there is just that great.

    Despite the price, SAIC food can be grouped into 3 categories: Asian cuisine, greasy food or pastries. Period. You are better off with Ramen.

    There are so many good places to eat in Chicago, especially on campus. Each building also has its own cafeteria with good, healthy food.

    The cafeteria food is hit or miss, and the meal plan is okay, but there is such a large amount of high quality food in the immediate area that it ends up almost not mattering.
