    Some days the food is good, some days it isn't. This campus does not offer food chains such as, Chick-fil-A, Anne's Pretzels, McDonalds, etc. that other college campuses may have. There are 2 food places, Rapids and The Commons. Rapids is a to-go option and The Commons is a buffet style sit in option.

    The food isn't terrible but also I'm not often over excited for lunch/dinner breakfast is almost always the same which is ok: waffle, omelette station, cereal station, hash browns, oatmeal, grits for lunch and dinner they have a different hot lunch every day with few repeats, they always have a pizza station, cereal station, salad bar, sandwich station, and desserts

    The cafeteria is located within University Place, the newest dorm on campus. The food is prepared daily and tastes as you would expect it too. Of course, if you're not into cafeteria food there are several locations within one mile of campus that you can either walk or drive to.

    During my semester at Pot State i had an meal. They have meal plans that allow you to eat week days and weekends. The food there is pretty good most of the time. However, it doesn't stop you from ordering Domino's every friday.

    There is a cafeteria that the dorm and commuter students use. There are also plenty of other dining options off-campus. I personally brought my own lunches.
