What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
The food there is actually surprisingly good, there is more than one type of station for food. For example there Italian, burgers, sandwich shop, lettuce bar, and so much more.
Chantelle from Sioux Falls, SD
The Trojan Center Marketplace is where students can eat their meals. The food in there is pretty good and students have a variety of different foods to choose from. The TC Marketplace staff cares about the food and nutrients that the students need to take in so it's nice to have someone looking out for you.
Anastasia from Glendale, AZ
the meals are fantastic. living right next to the cafeteria has great advantages.
