    McNary dining hall has a stir fry station that is open for lunch and dinner. If a student doesn't add meat to their stir fry, they can get as much food as they want and it will usually only amount to around four or five dollars.

    Overall, the environment is great. Because it's a college town, most of the people there are college students like yourself. It can get pretty rowdy sometimes, especially game days, but I feel like that just gives you the whole college experience. There are resources that really prepare you for the next step, whether it's finding a job or continuing onto grad school.
