    there are plenty of places to eat of campus, and good places at that. the school is always asking there students to rate their service and to recommend new food establishments and they have just recently added a few new establishments to their diverse list. the meal plans available are also relatively cheap, especially in combination with a dorm package.

    During my tour, I saw many unhealthy restaurants and about three Starbucks. I was told from my cousin that there was a healthy section in the cafeteria, but that it was a bit expensive (she graduated from the school). There were many different dining choices though.
