    There's a central building most locals ignore in the center of campus that has a Sbarro, Burger King, Church's and Pollo Tropical. Off-campus you might find more alternatives such as Quizno's, Pasta Mobile, a Mexican Restaurant, a Natural/Organic cart, etc. Also, some departments do have their own cafes that sell sandwiches, soups, salads and local cuisine.
