  • The only plus about the dorms is the fact that residents don't have to share a bathroom with the entire floor. There is one bathroom per four students. This is…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food is delicious, but it is not very healthy to eat. There are two types of dining area which are in one of the dorms area and the theater building itself. The reason the food is not healthy is because there isn't always fruit or vegetables. Plus the food can be really high, so be careful of how the way you spent your meal plan.

    Unsure, only ate on campus twice. The line was long and slow, but it was peak lunch hour so it would be unfair to judge.

    There is a wide variety of food choices from a salad bar, pizza, sub sandwiches, Asian style, and a fast food style grill. There is also a coffee shop that is comparable to a Starbucks or other coffee shop. Both of the dorms have small food vendors in them. One focuses on fast food type food and is open until midnight. The other focuses on health food and has a variety of hours. The only thing that is not convenient about the dining is the strange hours on the weekends with the places opening at 11:30 am, closing at 2 pm, then reopening at 3 pm and closing at 6 pm.

    Food is good, but adding few new things on the menu will not hurt, and keeping the dining longer open would be great.

    The food is A1. You can get all day if you really wanted to. There are also places in your dorm with food so you don't have to leave and go outside. There is everything and they change it up everyday. So there will also be something new that you can try as well.

    Greek life is pretty new on this campus, We currently have three fraternities and two sororities but we are trying to bring more on campus.
