What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
The food overall is quite good, but it does get repetitive and there are only two dining halls. They are constantly coming up with new healthy options, but it is sometimes difficult to eat healthy all the time at CNU.
Elizabeth from Centreville, VA
the food here is absolutely fantastic! however, the only bad part is that students are only allowed one meal swipe per meal time even though the student may have 3 swipes per day. if the card is not swiped once for each mean, it is lost for ever.
Cindy from Virginia Beach, VA
Great food, but a little repetitive.
