  • Most at Southwest Baptist are Christians and are therefore pretty friendly people. Many will leave their doors open and are open for socializing and having new faces in their rooms.…

    Food is also not to bad. It could be a lot better, but it is a school. School lunches anywhere are normally not the best.

    The food is pretty good here. People like to complain about it a lot, but I personally think it's delicious!

    They have good service at Mellers, but the food is not always the best. Its like High School when you have to feed a mass amount of people then it gets that way. Do not get me wrong though, some of it is good. They make good omelets and tater tots. There is and ice cream machine which I love. If you do not want to go to breakfast at Mellers, the sports cafe offers breakfast meals for the meal plan. You can also buy other food there not on your meal plan. There is also a coffee shop, Kaldi's, in the student union. They make really great hot chocolate.

    If you pay for your meal plan eat the food, so your money doesn't go to waste. The food isn't horrible, but it is a little different.

    We aren't provided any food at Mercy, only vending machines. They have a fridge where you can store your lunches or you have to drive off campus to eat.

    Everyone seems to complain about the food in college, even at schools with good food. It's something that seems to unite college students. The food here is not great, but it's not terrible. There are options to choose from, but just don't expect it to be the same as when you visit. They put the good stuff out for that. Breakfast is their most successful meal.
