  • There are basically three options. Newly renovated dorms, old school dorms, and dorms with a kitchen. You basically get what you pay for. However, community is never an issue, seeing…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are two main options for dining: the cafeteria (limited hours) and deli (extended hours). Both offer take-out services. For the cafeteria, a $5 deposit can be given in order to receive a green box, with which you can stuff with as much food as you're capable of doing. Upon returning the box, your deposit is returned in full. Staples in the deli are sub sandwiches, grilled chicken sandwiches, chicken tender sandwiches, hamburgers, pizza slices, Uncrustables, salad, etc. Staples in the cafeteria are a build-your-own sandwich line (with grill), salad bar, taco bar, hot dog bar, dessert area with six ice creams, and many beverage choices (including a new iced coffee brewer)

    Pioneer Foods of Minneapolis provides the dining experience at North Central. Buffet style makes the selection process satisfying. The menu is on rotation, so you do not have to eat the same meals constantly, but yet you will never go a long time without revisiting your favorite choices.

    The food that they have is wonderful. What would make North Centrals Food and Dining a five star is if they had more of a variety of foods.

    There is variety. However one might chose to avoid a meal plan at all cost. The way our meal plan works is, you can sign up for either 7, 10, 14, 18 meals a week. However, if you do not use all those meals that week, they do not roll over. Therefore, you are technically losing/ wasting money. We are also not offered supper on Sundays.

    The food really is NOT that awesome. My friends and I eat out a lot just because it is literally a lot of the same stuff over and over again. The contract is under review this year though so hopefully it will get better.

    The food is usually pretty good. We have a lot of different options for lunch. You can eat in the cafeteria or you can get deli if you are in a hurry.

    North Central University is in the heart of downtown Minneapolis, so there are alot of restaurants around. Students are especially close to the Mall of America(biggest mall in America) which allows for great shopping and food. The cafeteria food at North Central University is not very good, but it is done in buffet style with alot to choose from, so you can usually find at least one good food item to eat.

    NCU does not have sororities and fraternities, instead and Greek clubs we have are academic clubs.

    Greek life is present, but small. There is one particular professor who specializes in this field. This professor is so passionate about the study of Greek and devotes her time day in and day out equipping students with the subject knowledge.

    We don't have any Greek life on campus. There are groups you can join but they aren't sororities or fraternities like you see on TV. The majority of them are bible studies or academic groups.
