    There aren't many options around the school. Many of the options are greasy anyway so it gets tiresome really fast. What does make up for it though are the food trucks that arrive nearly everyday. The food trucks are amazing.

    The food options are ok. There is a large cafeteria that most students like. However, I prefer to eat healthy items and there are a limited amount of healthy shops on campus. However, there are options and options is better than nothing.
