    The dining hall got renovated over winter break. Now we have new seats and an expanded snack area. Overall, the food is high quality. Some days, the cafeteria will have food you don’t like, but there are always other dining options like Which Wich and Starbucks.

    The food is actually pretty good. We have a couple main choices everyday to choose from. And that is just in our main cafeteria. We also have three smaller cafeterias spread out on campus. They have sandwiches and other foods so if you do not have time to have a sit down meal you can grab something and go.
