    Greasy as hell and filled with variety, there are multiple places to eat on campus but I recommend the main dining hall in Sheehan Hall: the Pod. Be careful, you'll add weight fast if you're not careful!

    Last year they built a new building for students to live in and downstairs is the cafeteria. There are many stations to get food which makes a lot of choices for people. There is a deli, international, main kitchen food, a pizza section, soup and salad, and two sections where people are cooking food on the grill. They are open at convenient times and have a lot of seating.

    The Food and dining are one of the lower points to be completely honest. There is a lot of unhealthy and fried food, so if you have no problem with that kind of food then you'll be fine. But if you're looking for diversity or health-conscious foods, you're better off eating off-campus.

    There are several options for eating. There is a Starbucks in the library and each dorm building have a snack store. There are two big cafeterias, one being a buffet. Both commuters and residents are able to purchase food in any of these places using either cash or ones student ID card. They offer a wide variety of food breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    The food in the cafeteria is really good and it's all you can eat. In the food court, you pay for each item, but there's a good variety. The cafeteria has special days where there will be a smoothie station, or a hot chocolate station, or some other fun thing. Plus they have soft serve everyday!

    The food isn't the best thing in the world, so definitely stock up!
