    There are only two options for dining halls, which are the cafeteria or the Heritage Center. The cafe is set up in a buffet style, the only thing is the food isn't always the greatest served there; it's really hit or miss. As for the Heritage Center, they serve pizza, build your own sandwich, salads or the Mongolian grill. The thing is though, it gets very repetitive and that's why I go back and forth between both places given to us.

    We have a lot of different options, but people with allergies have a hard time getting food that suits them. These options are not very healthy, so that could be improved, and the main cafeteria needs to improve a bit because a lot of students choose not to go there. But in general we have okay food and a few things to choose from.

    There is usually a variety in the cafeteria for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There's a salad bar, which is really nice. There is also a place called the Underground on campus, located below the cafeteria. This is where you can get food on the go! It's quite convenient for meals between classes.

    The cafeteria menu is pretty simple and limited and could use a make over for sure. More variety would be appreciated there were many days when the only thing that was available that looked appetizing was a salad and you know you can only eat so much salad. I was also disappointed to find out the student account is a use it or loose it meaning no refunds back for non used meals and they also do not allow you to carry them over to the next year. I think this should be changed tuition is expensive enough to loose out on your meal plan just due to non use really sucks

    Well, from what I hear from others, nobody cooks like mom. The Underground, Sylvia's and the cafeteria all serve quite a variety of foods. The cafeteria is set up where you can go to different bars to get your foods. Soup and Salad, Desserts and the long counter where you get your main entrees.
