Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food at college is not your mom's cooking. Just putting that out there. That being said, the dining services at Augie are very, very good. The staff are all very friendly and always willing to ask how your day was. They get to know you. The variety of food available on a daily basis is very good. During meal times, there is available a main meal, stir-fry/omelets, pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches, dessert, and a salad bar. And even in the off times you can get food in the huddle or a sandwich from cafeteria. They also have fun nights planned every month or so. They plan huge campus-wide meals. It is so much fun and I love it.

    I love all the windows in the dining area. There have been plenty of food options available each time I have eaten on campus. The staff was friendly.

    They work really hard to ensure that the students are happy with what food is being served, and they work hard to have something for everyone.

    The food is excellent. There is a wide variety to choose from. There are two main lines which change every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Then there is a line from which you can get an omelet in the morning or Chinese food during lunch and dinner. Next to that line is the vegetarian line, then there's a station where you can get a sandwich or wrap. Then there is a grill where they have pizza or pasta and burgers or some type of warm sandwich. Those are the main options, but there are several other things to choose from. The dining space is quite nice, too. There are many places to sit and you can stay as long as you need/want to.

    Great cafeteria with a wide variety of food, but the unlimited plan that they recently implemented is not the best in my opinion. If you do the math, it is $27 a day/$9 a meal, and I eat in the commons maybe once a day. If you eat in the commons regularly, it is worth it, but you get a much better $9 meal elsewhere.

    Our meal plan is pretty great. It is unlimited which means you can swipe your card as many times as you want from 7-7 everyday. Hot meals are not served the entire time, but there is soup, sandwiches, salad, and some other foods that you can eat. Also included in the meal plan is a transfer meal to the Huddle. So, if you have a really busy day, you can stop by the on campus grill and get a 'free' meal.

    The food is wonderful! There is something for almost everybody. My favorite is the wraps and the sandwiches. Plus who doesn't want ice cream after every meal?

    The Commons on campus has a wide range of food and there are always options. The salad and wrap bar is open for dinner and lunch. There is always a stir-fry bar as well.

    Superb. That's all there is to say about it. Most colleges don't offer as many choices as Augustana - main dish, secondary dish, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salads, wraps, soup, and stir-fry station. Every day. It doesn't get better than this! (And if you're on the go, you can stop by the Huddle, Augie's little restaurant.)

    There are no sororities or fraternities on campus. There are theme houses on campus that focus on a volunteering project throughout the year. The theme houses are applied for by a group of students.

    We offer Theme Houses, which are like Sororities or Fraternities, except that the students living in the houses must have a community service theme. - But no Greek Life
