What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
The dining is probably Doane's biggest downfall. When visiting the school, you see all the options and think that you'll never be dissatisfied, but the truth is - most people are. It's the average cafeteria food, with not many healthy options advertised or focused on. There is a coffee shop, but if you are ever interested in getting a drink in the evening, it is often not mixed or made well. Tiger, the fast food option, while open at more convenient hours for busy students, does not have much variety once you've eaten there for a couple weeks. The food is satisfactory, and gets you through the day, but not ideal.

Being a smaller school we do not have fast food chains represented on campus, though you have the option if you walk downtown. The options on campus are Common Grounds, which is our coffee shop where you can by pastries, smoothies, and of course coffee. Then we have Tiger Inn, which is a little fast food restaurant if your in a hurry and on the go. Your food options are the basic burgers and chicken strips but you also have days where you can choose mini corn dogs, mini tacos, buffalo chicken nuggets, and nachos. Of course, you have the main option of The Caf or cafeteria. Here you can get the healthy option of Simply to Go, which offers a variety of sandwiches, fruits and yogurts, and salads. You can also go through the buffet style lunch line and get as much or as little as you would like.

You have three choices. Tiger Inn (fast food), Common Grounds (coffee shop/cafe), and the cafeteria. The meal plan options are not as great, but they are said to be working on that.
