    The campus cafeteria is pretty big. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Traditional food items found on a regular menu. Most food stations are set up like a buffet style where you serve yourself, and there's the sandwich station where you have to place your order to the server. After eating, you clean up your area and take your dishes and silverware to the conveyer belt to be transported to the kitchen.

    The food is not five star gourmet cuisine at Nyack. I would advise to stack up on homemade foods or be willing to eat out often, (which can be expensive).

  • I am a current student here

    The hot food line has made me sick more than a little bit, often times my friends and I have seen what there was to eat and decided that we would simply wait until the next meal and pray that there would be something better then. During the week the hours for the meals are bearable but on the weekend everything is only open for an hour and when I say everything I mean only the hotline. The stir-fry and Sandwich line are closed on the weekend. As is the pizza line though that's more of a blessing than a disapointment

    The food for the first two weeks is amazing. Then after that you just dread it! There's no menu so you won't know whats for dinner until you get there. I'm saying it was amazing the first two weeks because I was not here spring semester 2013. You will get sick of the food very quickly. It's the same stuff all the time. The food on the weekend veeeerrrrryyyyyy bad. I don't go to the cafe on the weekends because it is so disappointing. Invest in a refrigerator!

    Around the school, there are some good places to eat. Pizza restaurants, fast food chains, Starbucks and more. Some places are a bit expensive but for the most part, everything is affordable

    No fraternities or sororities so don't worry about this.
