What Students Are Saying

4.22 Average Rating
The dining hall looks like something out of a castle. I haven't tried the food, but I hear that they have a lot of different options to accommodate a variety of tastes/diets.
Tyler from Springfield, MO
there aren't a ton of options when it comes to food, but benedictine does well with the number of students. there's a restaurant on campus that serves great food that you can buy with dining dollars. the cafeteria has a lot of options, but as with any college, you get a little tired of the food after a while. benedictine makes up for that with it's grab-n-go options, which are like cold lunch at two other campus locations. there's a coffee shop that's open in the morning and at night called holy grounds, and it's definitely a hotspot for students. at night we also have a late night option for those looking for a late-night snack.
Kristin from Loretto, MN
multiple dining options around campus make it easy to meet up with friends and grab a quick bite between classes. the mci is a great on campus sit down restaurant for nights when you want to have something special.
M. from San Diego, CA
Good food, trendy hangout called the roost and they really try and help the student with special dietary needs (I'm gluten and dairy free).
Nathaniel from Saint John, IN
The food is decent quality, (except for the eggs), but there are not very many options for one who is looking to eat something healthy, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. For breakfast, basically all of the options in the Caf are carbs and fake eggs, so if you decide to eat breakfast, Grab N' Go may be a better option.
