  • Everyone on the floor gets to know each other very quickly. If your door isn't locked chances are someone is coming in. Most doors are propped open anyway.…

    To be honest, the food here is probably better than a lot of colleges from the stories I hear, but like all college food, it gets really boring really fast. There are three different places on campus so that add variety which is good. The people who work in the dining commons are amazing people, you feel right at home there.

    The Dining Commons (DC) are awful. The food is rarely healthy and there are times where there isn't anything for breakfast. There were many days when I did not even eat because I got sick from the food from the previous night. Also, the water in the Jackson, MI area is considered well water. If you attend, be sure to bring A LOT of bottled water or a water filter.

    One of the worst things on campus, something that I can count on every day to be the same. The dessert are generally pretty good. But the food is normally the regular frozen food, but cooked a little. There`s always waffles, cereal, and bagels. On sundays the food is better because people from the church (that`s right next to the campus) will come eat in the cafeteria, so they tend to make better food for them (because they pay for it - I guess). The dinning area is really kind of small, compared to most schools - there`s only one of them. Where there`s meal exchange, that`s another place to eat. But that`s also a place where people hang out, and do homework.

    The options aren't great on the weekend and sometimes during the beginning of the week, but once Wednesday rolls around, the food (and dessert) is excellent. The dining staff are wonderful people.

    There is a dining commons that is open three meals a day as well as a snack bar that is open twenty-four hours a day for the student on the go. The food is not terrible, but it's not stupendous either. It's very average though there are a ton of choices for each meal at the dining commons.

    The cafeteria was just re done recently and have made a lot of improvements. The food is great and you have a lot of variety to choose from. Even if you are a picky eater I am sure you will still find something to like. Its has lots of places to sit and chat with all your friends.

    There are plenty of options for food. The food for the most part is good. Sometimes it slacks for the dinning commons, but there are alternatives. The cougar den are for people quick and in a hurry. If running late, go to the cougar den, grab a to go bag and take your food to class. Professors are alright, being that they understand why. There is also Ada's kitchen, which is a soup and sandwich joint. It's is also to go if needed. Ada's is very good!

    Chartwells is the company that is responsible for SAU's student dining. I actually work in the dining commons as a student worker. This company is very well-known in the student dining arena, and as such the food a of good quality. The employees are also considerate of the students; they always ask the students about what they could do better.
