    While the dining hall does not have the best food in the world, it is a far cry from being bad. Also, there are multiple other places to eat at or around campus. The meal plan gives you several meal swipes, which are basically free meals, for different restaurants, as well as $200 of Flames Cash that can be used at several off campus locations.

    Liberty's Rheber Thomas Dining Hall has definitely been rated the #1 college dining hall in America for a reason! The food was excellent and the building itself is beautiful and very well organized. This is a great area to meet new people and run into old friends.

    Liberty's cafeteria, The Reber Thomas Dining Hall, was ranked number one in the United States in 2015. There are also many other food options to choose from that take either Flames Cash or free Meal Swipes.

    Stellar! Take your pick at the rot between fast food, home style dinner plates, Mexican, asian, pizza and pasta bar, sandwich bar, salad bar, unlimited cookies and ice cream, and the amazing gluten free section! Or go to Green Hall and get Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, subs, wraps, or salads! If you're rushing between classes in Demoss, swing by Subconnection and grab a sub to go! There is also Simply to Go that accepts Flames Cash and is filled with quick snacks like muffins, energy bars, and drinks. Studying at the Liberty? Go downstairs to grab some Starbucks or anything from the four food stations on the terrace floor. Finally, just need something to satisfy that sweet tooth before convo? Grab a donut or a hot drink from Dunkin Donuts at the Commons!

    The food on campus is good and there are plenty of options for food on campus. The main dining hall has a lot of options from burritos to pizza to pancakes to international food. You also have sub-co which is like subway, a taco stand of sorts, a sushi, Aunti Anne's, Pizza Hut, Baskin Robbins/Dunkin Donuts and few others.
