    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.

    The dining hall is nice. Good selection. Additionally, the restaurant and bar in University Center is very nice. Great food and entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

    Campus food is campus food. This isn't the best food ever provided but it does just fine. There is a good variety and the food now comes from the campus's own garden.

    There are 3 places to get food. The lodge, Cafe 65, and Clyde's. Everyone hates the lodge and yet everyone has to go because it's one out of the two places where people can spend their meal plan. However uccs is getting a new food hall next year.

    There are strategically placed cafes all over campus providing good food and drink. In addition, there is Cafe 59 which, though overpriced, provides delicious food for on the go.

    I have not gone in to the lodge to find no food there. There is always something there to eat. It is also a great place to sit down and eat with your friends and have fun too.

    The school is currently undergoing many changes but they have made great efforts in making sure students have healthier options than you typically would see. There is always room for improvement but UCCS is on the right track.

    Well the food at the dining facility, known as the Lodge, isn't like what Mom and Dad make but it's definitely got quite a selection. It's open buffet style with healthy options as well as a daily special, and they've got actual plates. The downside is you can't take any of these meals out unless you order to go well in advance. But where the Lodge fails Columbine Cafe, Jazzman's Cafe, Clyde's and Cafe'65 make up for it. Clyde's is a restaurant style eating facility much fancier than the lodge and equipped with a bar, typically for those days you want to eat out with friends or family. Cafe'65 is a grab and go food court style eating facility alternative to the other two. Columbine Cafe is like an extension of Jazzman's, both serving teas, coffees and snacks.

    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.
