What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Dining on campus isn't great. There are a few okay options, but overall, my friends and I would MUCH rather go off campus for food. The dining plan is tough to get used to. Definitely go for less meals and more plus dollars when choosing a dining plan!!!

School dining has some good options, but overall the food is not the best. However, there are various options on campus.
