What Students Are Saying

3.58 Average Rating
The dining hall has a great selection of food in buffet style. They have fresh made pizza every day, a home cooked meal area as well as a grill and a great salad bar. When it is nice outside they make sure to set up food outside with games and activities so that you can interact with the other students.
Andrea from Akron, OH
The food on campus is good. There are different places to eat.
Sarah from Columbus, OH
Capital has a pretty good food for students. And when the main dining hall closes there are other places that open for a little while later. And also if you not feeling campus food on a particular day they're many restaurants close by you could walk to.
DeShawn from Detroit, MI

Antonia (Toni) from Canal Winchester, OH
We have three different locations on campus where students can eat and all three are in the Campus Center. We have the Cru Club. They serve not so healthy food, but it is so good. The MDR (Main Dining Room) where you have a variety of stations to get food from, a salad/fruit bar, dessert section, drinks, and more importantly ice cream! Finally, we have the Mezz. The Mezz is only open during certain hours, but they have a variety of choices on their menu as well.
Ashley from Cincinnati, OH
The food is good. We have a lot of choices to choose from. The cafeteria tries to go by the food pyramid/diagram, and they do a good job of it.
