    Food options are pretty varied in the dining hall. Although the hours are a little strange and there are gaps in the day where there is nowhere to find food on the campus, students figure it out.

    Not great, but has a variety of options-- gluten free and vegan/vegetarian options are available, but not plentiful.

    like any other school, the food fluctuates in quality. any given day, there are staples in the buffet that you can stick to, but there are also lots of fun dishes to try. like most other departments, the dining hall staff are also extremely kind, and they accommodate gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian diets. there are also some days when the food is incredible, and some days when the staff does cute themes and decorates the dining hall.

    The dining hall food usually tastes pretty good, sometimes they get a little adventurous. Personally I'm a plain-and-simple person when it comes to food, I don't like too many spices or extra flavors, etc, so sometimes I found it to be a little overdone, but if you like food that way then great. I'm vegetarian and they do offer great vegetarian and vegan options at all three meals on the weekdays and both meals on the weekends. The snack bar is great, they have plenty of options and can make things for the most part however you like it. I would definitely recommend keeping food in your room unless you can handle two to three meals and day and a snack in the evening on a daily basis - personally I need to eat more often than that and there are vending machines in ONE spot on campus, and they're not always well-stocked, so getting food between dining hall/snack bar hours can be pretty difficult without a car.

    the dining hall food is very hit and miss. many people live on pizza, which is generally considered the most consistently good food on campus. they have many events with special food for the occasion. on discovery days and parents weekends, the food is great - they go all out! otherwise, the snack bar is a popular place to eat between 7 and 11 pm.
