    there is a buffet in the meyerhoff dorm that serves lunch and dinner, glace grill in founder's green (the freshmen dorms), cafe doris that serves sandwiches and coffee in the fox (studio class) building, and java corner for coffee and snacks in the bunting (academic class) building. there's another place to eat in the studio building with good lunch options. the best place for your money is the meyerhoff buffet, since you can get a lot of food for one meal swipe (or $10). they do make you swipe twice if you want to eat there and also take a box to go.

    For school food, it's pretty good. The food is much better on prospective student visiting days, so if there's ever a day to each there, that's it. On other days, it's still pretty good. It's better than my high school's food and it's better than MCAD's.

    The food and dining at MICA is one of a kind. The Meyerhoff is a great place to eat if you are ever looking for a good meal. Doris is also great if you want really great sandwiches or snacks. But the food is amazing and the chefs asks for students's requests, specifically if we want a certain type of food then they will provide it. There are also food trucks and great places to buy food on campus. The great part is you can put money on your ID card and swipe it for food, so you don't have to worry about carrying a debit/credit card.

    The food here sucks especially the hoff you will probably not eat there after your sophomore year.... atleast thats how it went for me and my friends... Doris has good sandwiches but you get pretty bored of them really quickly... also the coffee on campus is really weak if you are a coffee drinker make them put another expresso shot in it.

    The food is pretty good and there are some good options, but it's not the best if you're a picky eater (like me). There is always pizza. The Meyerhoff (the only dining option open for breakfast/lunch) is only open in 2.5 to 3 hour bursts and can be easy to miss, but Cafe Doris and Glace Grill help to make up for it. Meyerhoff is a buffet, always with pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, and sandwiches, but has other options that change day-to-day. Glace Grill has pizza every day, as well as a grill option (burgers, chicken sandwiches, and wings tend to rotate through) and a varying third option with everything from pasta to soup in breadbowls to gyros. Cafe Doris has muffins, bagels, pastries, sandwiches, hot dogs, and a daily special (soup or chili, usually).

    Being in Baltimore, here are a lot good restaurants to go eat at. There are all sorts of cuisines like Korean, Japanese, America, Indian, etc. THere really is a great variety here. There are also great small specialty place that sells super delicious soups, and if you're looking for some fine dinning for date nights, you can go down to the inner harbor for a romantic dinner and a stroll next to the harbor. There are a lot of good places to eat around the campus. Each has it's own color and taste. Being a freshman, however, you have to get the two most amount for meals. That means that you would want to use most of it up before the semester ends because there's no roll over of the meal points. That means that most of the time, you will be eating school's food. At first, it is very delicious, but after eating at the same place every single day, the meal does get bland an unappetizing. It's is a great convenience to have the meals because sometimes you just dont feel like cooking, but it does get bad after a while. The great side to the dinning hall is Breakfast/Brunch on Saturday and Sunday. They have such good breakfast foods like omelets, and bacon, and yogurts. Also, there is a wide variety in vegan and vegetarian food. There is a salad bar, and a soup stand, and a sandwich bar. There is a great variety, but it's jsut too much sometimes.

    The food is pretty good they have a lot of choices for all, vegan and the like. They also do international foods and have fruit and salad all the time in the Meyerhoff. Friday Saturday and Sundays they have the best foods. Doris is the cafe on campus and although is a bit pricey it is pretty good. I suggest getting the 200 meal plan for all freshman for you first semester at least. most students don't use all of those meals but if you plan on having family and friends come to visit you on campus then you can swip for them so they don't have to pay the 9 or so dollars it costs to eat at Meyerhoff (Meyerhoff is all you can eat by the way). And remember not to over indulge in the dessert table.

    I'd give 5 stars for restaurants around the city of Baltimore and around MICA. So many good restaurants! But I can only give 3 stars for dining at school. They do not have much variety, and their food can taste very unhealthy at times. Although they have an Italian man who bakes pizzas, and they are amazing all the time.

    There is no greek life at MICA. But once you go there, you won't even notice, because MICA is such an interesting school with creative minds and people, so a lot of the time students will come up with their own activities etc.
