    The food is decent if you are a first year. For more variety and flavor and price, go downtown.

    The cafeteria is small and does not have any options. There is a small salad bar, a little pizzeria, small Starbucks kiosk, very small buffet, along with a cook to make breakfast and lunch to order. Everything can be found off campus for a cheaper price if you're willing to do a bit of traveling.
