    Food isn't bad if you prefer quantity over quality. The food is improving, but if you're health conscious at all, the meal plan is probably not worth it. Sodexo runs both the cafeteria and the deli, so the food offerings are almost identical regardless of dining location. There are only these two dining options on campus, and very limited hours of operations.

    The school cafeteria is pretty good food. The school is trying to get a food court with a variety of restraunts.
