What Students Are Saying

3.92 Average Rating
There is a caf, as we call it, that has a grill, deli, international line, pasta line, and a main line. There's a salad bar, ice cream machine, and desert bar, too. Everything is usually good, but I am so serious when I say DO NOT EAT THE PIZZA. We also have a food court. If you're ever there, go to Godfather's Pizza and buy some hot chicken wings. They are to die for!
Allison from Conway, AR
I personally feel like the food could be way better. The food in the cafeteria has improved from last year, but I think they should make food that is more commonly heard of. Sometimes the healthy options are foods/preparations that I have never seen or heard of. We also have a food court, however I don't like eating in those places either because of all the grease they use in the food. This may just be me considering the fact that 99% of people that I talk to love eating in the food court. But I do love the snack store located in the library. There are tons of healthy options and I find myself stopping there quite often when I'm in a rush to get to class in the mornings and don't have time to stop by the cafeteria. One great thing about food and dining on campus is that each resident living on campus is required to purchase a meal plan, which virtually makes everything on campus free with just a swipe or tap of your student ID,

The food is delicious I just love it, and if I did get tired of caf food then they have more to offer like Chik-Fil-A and Starbucks.
Gracie from Salem, AR
Astate provides food variety. They have Mexican food, Asian food and pizza and chicken. You can also purchase a meal plan for a reasonable price. Not only that but they provide mini stores in the library and student union for snacks. And a Starbucks.
Cassidy from Jonesboro, AR
The cafeteria offers a wide selection of food. It is very good and you can eat all you want for the entire semester. Aside from the cafeteria, there are several on campus restaurants that students may choose from if fast food is more your speed. All in all, an A plus!
