  • Feb-03-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Once on a marching band trip, we visited USA and the cafe was great! We had waffles at noon, and then spaghetti! The varieties are great too.

    Campus dining is pretty good. The Fresh Food Dining Hall is great on most days; however, if you are disappointed, the campus offers Starbucks, Chick-Fil-A, Burger Studio, Pizza Hut Express, and other dining establishments to fit your needs. Plus not too far from other eateries off campus (some are within comfortable walking distances or short drive).

    The Student Center, which is also one of South's newest facilities, is a great dining place. In the food court, they have something for everyone such as sushi to Chik-fil-A. The caf has some food that is okay. The caf is not my favorite place to eat because the food is not always the best, the lines are way too long at times, and I do not enjoy the atmosphere as much.

    The food is fantastic in every way. Although, you will gain a lot of pounds if you don't exercise. However, the University provides a meal plan to help maintain your weight.

    South has a new dining facility that is nothing less than divine. They have so many different options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The facility caters to greasy-fry lovers and healthy eaters. They dining hall is very spacious and includes a coffee shop on the bottom.
