  • This review is with reserve. The current dorm life makes it difficult to get the exact dorm that you want. Based off of my experience, it can get rather loud…

    Sodexo provides the food here and it is really fatty and gets bland. Every thursday is special dinner night and the dinners are sometimes incredible, but health wise it is really bad for you.

    I'm not sure about food on campus, but I do know that Hawaii's food can be pretty expensive if it comes from the mainland. So if you like your milk, you better get a job!

    The food is of good quality. There is a dinning hall and a cafe on campus. The cafe is not apart of the meal plan, so you will have to pay with money but the food is very good.

    Affordable, yes, does it cover quite everything? Well the 7-day plan I had I still needed a couple hundred more Flexpoints to have a meal called lunch. Sodexo food is great and I will probably buy the food when I'm running between classes, but I'm going to utilize the local grocery stores and my fridge this semester. The all-you-can-eat meals are great at the beginning of the week, but are consistent, and aren't always the best, especially as the week goes on.

    The food is subpar at best. My work allows me to participate in the USDA Summer program, but for the most part I don't care for the food offered in the dining halls.

    Food is okay, but can be a bit expensive. I suggest getting a meal plan.

    Dorm dining room has good food but little variety. Downtown has a wide variety of good restaurants.
