    Food is not very highly regarded at this school. There are some days where the food is amazing and some days where the food is disgusting. And i feel like that is how it is on all campuses.

    The food and dining here at Ottawa is really good. They make good food and you feel like you had an awesome dinner. There is also the snack bar which makes some of the best food on campus. The dining staff here is some of the best in the nation and try their best no matter what every night to make you feel like you are at home.

    Cafeteria food is HORRIBLE!!!!!! The food is not bad because of the supplier its the staff. Rules are ridiculous as well, I have went to other Universities and they do not have such frivolous rules. They are currently building a new cafeteria but I do not see how a new building will enhance the food if the same staff is cooking the same food.

    That cafeteria food is alright, there is a snack bar that is convenient to you and gives you an extra choice of food other then cafeteria food. Also the options of authentic and dine in restaurants in Ottawa is great.

    The cafe is alright, they always have a salad bar which is nice--but how old the lettuce at the bottom of the bin is, is anyone's guess. We have a snack bar for when you can't make it to the cafe, but it is closed on weekends---when you want it the most! =/

    food is available in the cafeteria at nice times where students can have plenty of time to eat. when the cafe is closed there is a snack bar available where you can order burgers, chicken strips, etc.

    We pride ourselves on not having any Greek life unlike our rivals Baker who thrives on the Greeks.
