What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
Food is actually pretty good. Lots of options. The holiday dinners are something you don't want to miss! As far as college food, it's the best I've seen.
Even though Carroll University is a small campus, there is still a wide variety of food to meet every students tastes. The Main Dining Room has a changing menu for every meal, assuring that students aren't eating the same meals day after day. There are also quick options for busy life students in the PIT. There are a variety of different fast food options that make grabbing a bite on the go a lot more convenient. There are also healthier dining options at ABP that also serve fresh baked goods. Not to mention, everything is within walking distance for convenient access.

Food is amazing there. They have such great choices for people like second cup, the PIT, Au bon pain, and the main dining room along with more.
Taylour from Waukesha, WI
There is a nice variety of food in the cafeteria. Try to plan your classes around their hours. The PIT is open late and also gives you some options but they are always the same. ABP is another place that you can go to and use your meal plan for and gives you more variety than the PIT. There is also a great coffee place in the library.

I had lunch on campus and really enjoyed the food! They have a lot of options and I wish I could have tried it all!

Meal plans are located on ID swipe card and are worth $6, but do not roll over each semester or year. There are two types of meal plans, commuter which is up to 90 meal swipes or regular which ranges 140-220 meal swipes. Dining dollars is another feature on ID swipe. It is money that is used to pay for food items (anything from coffee shop to soda and fries) that aren't worth as much as a meal swipe and they DO roll over at each semester and year; commuters are allotted up to $225 and regular plans up to $550. The main dining room (MDR) is located on the main campus center and offers: all you can eat buffet, baker's crust (similar to subway), pizzeria, salad bar, hot bars, breakfast corner, drink station, and dessert bar. In the lower level of the campus center, the pioneer indoor terrace (PIT) is home to Coyote Jacks (burgers, wraps, fries, etc.), Red Mango (smoothies and frozen yogurt), 2 Mato (pizza, calzones, pasta, etc.), and refrigerators (soda, water, chips, candy, etc.). All of the places will sell items as a meal swipe or separately with dining dollars. Au Bon Pain, which is similar to a Panera, is located underneath Frontier Hall. Sandwiches (turkey, tuna, vegan, etc.), soups (chicken noodle, tomato basil, 12 veggie, mac and cheese, etc.), salad (Caesar, garden, southwester, etc.), and pastries are sold in either a meal swipe or separately with dining dollars. Verde! is a small shop located outside MDR that sells snacks, bottled drinks, and coffee. Dining dollars are used to purchase any of those items. At Second Cup, a coffee shop that beat out Starbucks in a taste testing contest located in the Carroll library, is a social study area where coffee, chai tea, bottled drinks, and food can be purchased with dining dollars or cash.
