    The dining hall is great food and you can stay their till close once you are in. Opened for 7:30 am? - 8:00pm during the week. You could spend an entire day in dining hall if you wanted when there are less students it can be a great place to study. The other on campus dining option are also pretty great Blue Gibbon the Chinese restaurant on campus is cheap and filling.

    While the cafeteria offers a wide variety of food selections, the same general thing is served every day. There are several stations that all offer different foods: salad, pasta, pizza, sandwiches, barbecue, breakfast food, etc. The bakery is divine.
