    My friend didn't like the food and felt like he wasted like a thousand something on a meal plan that he didn't even use. Even McDonalds was a better choice, he told me.

    Could be better it seems like the menu goes into a rotation of the same meals ever other week.

    What can I say, It's cafeteria food. Decent most of the time, and the staff are friendly enough. We have a Starbuck and an Einstein's Bagels which are a plus and add variety to the food situation. There is also a convenience store located on campus for you to pick up snacks and other readily available foods.

    There are a lot of really good restaurants here that are locally owned and operated. We also have the usual fast food spots. My favorite is Smiling Faces yummy!

    Food here is mediocre but my friends at other schools say they receive the same standard foods, we also receive a special food that is random every day. If the food at the cafeteria doesn't satisfy you there's also the local restaurants here in walking distance. They also have on campus stores where they sell food and snacks that you can pay with using money the school gives you (Flex Dollars).
