    The food is pretty good! They try to have a variety throughout the week, and everything is prepared by the culinary arts students that day. There are some vegetarian options, which I appreciate. Not so much vegan or kosher/halal.

    The cafeteria and bistro both staff students in the culinary program. Both feature excellent food for reasonable prices. For those students who prefer packaged foods, these can be found in vending machines around campus and in the bookstore.

    Food is available in the cafeteria and vending machines. Students in the culinary department are the cooks and they have their own restaurant at the school.
