  • The freshmen dorms are very small, but they are standable. Upperclassmen dorms are nice, they resemble hotel style suites. Many students end up renting houses, or levels around…

    I personally love the Cyber Cafe on campus, which is separate from the dining hall, yet you use the same meal plan/ DU bucks for. They make whatever sandwich you want, they have a starbucks, and a bunch of other things you can buy like suchi. The main dinning hall is also cool, it looks like a scene out of harry potter and the food is varied and good.

    the food quality usually starts wonderful but goes down throughout the year. it is definitely better than average compared to other colleges, though. the people that work there recognize you and attempt to get to know you; they will always put a smile on your face. cyber cafe is a quick fix for food, especially later at night (it stays open until 11 on weekdays).

    The food at Dominican is really good. Recently, they offer a way range of foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They now offer deserts at the Cybercafe now.

    Breakfast and at times lunch is the best place to eat at the dining hall but dinner sucks. Cyber is were majority of the students go to. The staff at the dining hall are always open to suggestions on what to improve and are sweet.

    The Dining hall is amazing, we have a buffet style cafeteria so it's all you can eat for eight bucks. The dining staff is friendly and the food that is served is fresh and there is a variety - taco's, pizza, spaghetti, the food is as diverse as the student body.

    Let's just say this school would be really great if it wasn't for its food. We have Cyber, and that's where a lot of people go instead of the dinning hall.

    They had hamburgers and a Really, Really good ice tea. I think that the food they had the day i went wasn't the food that they usually have, so i can't say much more.

    Is provided by a company called Chartwells. Could be better, but at least provides basic nutritional needs. Meal Plan for school is convenient.

    There are options at the school and with every college, it has its good and bad days. There is a cafe in the computer lab, it is similar to a subway and it also serves pizzas. Its good and they always have good stuff.
