    I had heard bad things about the food, but find it to be adequate and have no complaints. I just don't recommend anything with "buffalo" flavor.

    Benedictine has food available in 6 locations across campus, you can get food anytime from the vending machines, but for full meals the cafeteria is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Monday-Friday and Brunch and Dinner on the weekends. The have a variety of foods there but if you fancy something else or have to eat and run to make class Cafe 62 and Grab and Go have a few choices to choice from so you can take and eat.

    Good food, trendy hangout called the roost and they really try and help the student with special dietary needs (I'm gluten and dairy free).

    The dining hall looks like something out of a castle. I haven't tried the food, but I hear that they have a lot of different options to accommodate a variety of tastes/diets.

    The food is decent quality, (except for the eggs), but there are not very many options for one who is looking to eat something healthy, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. For breakfast, basically all of the options in the Caf are carbs and fake eggs, so if you decide to eat breakfast, Grab N' Go may be a better option.

    The cafeteria food is decent - some of it good, some not so much - but there are other options and there's cereal, sandwiches and other items you can prepare for yourself. There's also a pizza place, a restaurant, and two cafes.

    The food here is either a hit or miss. Some of the meals are awesome and I could eat all day while others I pass on. The good thing though is that there's always stuff in the cafeteria that you can prepare yourself.

    The food is alright, the Cafeteria has several options which change every day. There is also a pizza place on campus as well as a small restaurant where you can eat. Fairly average as far as campus dining goes.
