What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
My best advice is to get the food plan. even if you decide to live off campus. the food at the SURC is amazing and diverse. they have everything from old fashion burgers and fries to exotic stuff like sushi and Italian pasta. they have a pizza place, a Mexican food place, the pasta place, a dessert corner (ice cream is to die for), and a sandwich place. then next too all that is the huge buffe that has something diferent everynight. and all of this is in the same building right in the middle of campus. they have resturaunts all over campus too if you just want to walk across the street from your class or dorm.

The only place i know for food on campus is The Cerc. Not very many options, but around town there is. Hope you like American, Chinese, Mexican, and Greek food.

The meal plans and discounts are awesome. They have two main dining halls that are full of different and delicious choices. I've never had an issue with the food.
Noelle from Olympia, WA
On, and off campus dining are both delicious! El Gato in the SURC, is byfar, my favorite on campus restaurant! :) These places also provide student employment, which is great for us broke college kids! :)

The food is really, really good. Lots of variety. But tends to get a little old after awhile.
