  • Feb-05-2014 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I can't say the food was amazing, but it was more than ok, considering the fact that you actually get to choose what you want to eat!

    The food is terrible, but there is a lot of it. You pay up front in the tuition costs per semester for the food, and you can eat whenever you want. Good for those who aren't picky, as food choice is very limited as well.

    VMI's mess hall has edible food, but it's not particularly palatable, especially day after day. Cadets survive by balancing the basic food with snacks kept in their rooms and takeout.

    Crozet dining, oh boy. What can I say? It's food. There's plenty of it but not a whole lot of variety. You here the upperclassmen complain about it a lot more. It's not terrible though.

    The food is horrible. This year's theme was slop as in taking a ladle and plopping it onto your dish. There are some really good days, but most of the time the food is just bad and not that healthy for a military school.
