    Honestly, the food here is not that great, but to be fair I haven't really heard of a college with amazing food. There are 2 dining halls on campus, each that serve different items everyday. The problem is that they will serve the same thing for breakfast as they do for dinner. This was solved by going to one for lunch and going to the other for dinner. Another issue is that there were quite a few times that I left unsatisfied due to the lack of food that I wanted, and I am not a picky person. Good thing freshmen are required to get the unlimited food plan because I went back in between meals to fill up!

    They have good food on campus. The coffee places on campus have very good coffee and good choices on food, especially before you start class and taking breaks between classes.

    Again, I haven't eaten in the dorm cafeterias but have heard some more good things about them. The on campus restaurant/bar Clyde's is pretty good, but expensive and some of their dishes are really strange. I ordered a portobello burger once, and it was literally a giant mushroom on a toasted bun- that one was my fault for not reading the description well enough, but even for a vegetarian meal still tasted dry and bland. The coffee shops are good and always improving their options. The cafeteria in the main student life building called the University Center is okay.

    Not stellar but not bad. Sustainability is a plus. Dorm food sucks, but Cafe '65 is alright. I usually just bring a lunch and dinner from home.

    Food's okay. There are a few places to eat on campus including some cafes, a bookstore/convenience store, two cafeteria/food court, and a small restaurant.

    I give UCCS only four stars in this area because, though they provide high quality food, the prices are through the roof. They do provide a few cheaper options though which are just as good if not more so. There are cafes located strategically throughout campus.

    I am a part of Greek life, although it is not very big at UCCS, I absolutely love being in a sorority here. We are very involved in school and it gives me something to look forward too.
