    The food here tastes about like typical cafeteria food, just slightly better. In the main dining hall you have buffet style service with a wide variety of food to chose from every day. Also if you won't have to stop and eat you are able to use a meal exchange to grab a sack lunch for one the go. If you ever feel like mixing things up a bit you can eat at Bucks. Bucks is restaurant that serves hamburgers, pasta, sandwiches, ect.

    On campus is not good - the caf is very limited - Morningside Grill is not open at the greatest times and the food takes a long time - the spoon holder cafe is like a coffee shop it is expensive but the smoothes are great! :) Around town the places are ever changing with a good general variety.

    The food here is great. Though on some days it can be dull, and it also can get repetitive. Be wise with meal plans, don't leave any meals unspent, because it does not roll over.

    I can count on my hands the amount of times that I have ate in the cafeteria in two years. I found Buck's and the Spoonholder far more convenient for me, however you end up running out of points for them.

    Food has improved greatly over the four years I have been here. Still leaves some things to be desired on the weekends, though.

    There aren't many greek fraternity because of the small campus but it's still pretty fun to see the fraternity competing each year during greek week.
