    The food on campus is very good and the cafeteria is always busy because of it. I prefer the spinich chicken wrap myself since I dont do red meat or pork, but they have a large variety of food item on menu for all tates. The low affordable cost of the food makes it all worthwhile as well when have a tight balance budget.

    there is no traditional cafe for students, having a cafe that was open 3 times a day, 7 days a week, would help the students who come to the college for athletics and they can't or don't have time to prepare their own meals in their apartments.

    There is a cafeteria, which is about as affordable as the fast food restaurants nearby. Local restaurants are a favorite. Mexican and Italian are both close by.

    The cafeteria closes rather early for me, but I schedule all of my classes in the evening anyway. The food there is always good and prepared fresh. The workers are students, so they are always very friendly. The Blue Wave Cafe is where I have met many of my new friends.

    BSC has the best food a school can offer! Run and operated by our culinary students, the Blue Wave Cafe provides students with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks from Monday through Thursday. I encourage everyone (student, teacher, everybody!) to come to our cafeteria and enjoy ASAP.
