What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Food at the cafeteria can be good sometimes but you'll find yourself going to different places to dine. if you are into cheap fast food there is a tacobell on one side and a Mc donalds in the other so you have some variety. Some good restaurants around the school that you need to experience first hand to actually judge them.
JAVIER from San Antonio, TX
Like I said at the beginning the food here is awesome! They make it fresh everyday, so nothing is old unlike those old high school lunches that are just yucky. They have places all around campus that you can get food from and then they have one place that is kind of like a buffet style of eating and you can go in anytime of the day.
Tyler from Grand Junction, CO
The College has recently upgrade there campus, food and dining is much bigger, good tasting food and excellent staff. Meals are fresh with many choices to choose from. Price is in budge, so you have no worries about being broke.
Thomas from Grand Junction, CO
The food and dining services at Colorado Mesa are not my favorite thing about the school. I think that the program needs to work on offering healthier, different options rather than cycling through 10 meals. I would like to see organics coming through the cafeteria or at least more vegetarian options. However, there are a few coffee and sandwich shops sprinkled throughout campus and those are worth eating at.
Leah from Colorado Springs, CO
There really isn't much variety regarding food. Of course, you get the same, old burgers and pizza, and then whatever mysteries reside in the dining hall. (The prices are a bit ridiculous if you aren't on a meal plan, just keep that in mind.) The quality of the food isn't the best, but it's edible at least.
