What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
They have a pretty extensive food court in the dining area; includes a buffet and many other varieties of food to maximize students options. Anyone who doesn't like the taste of campus food can always leave and be at a restaurant in less than ten minutes since a lot of the town is centered around the school.

ETSU has an awesome Dining hall. I, honestly, was a piece of trash and just ate in the fast food area. I hate chickfila almost every day for half a semester, but there are other fast food options or you can try and eat decently in the dining area.
Laura from Johnson City, TN
Dorm life here is ten times better than most people claim it to be. I loved it my freshman year just as much as my sophomore year. It's fun and you get to know many people in your dorm!

good and many choices

They had a lot of dining options but they were all a little pricy. Also, the cafe is buffet style, which is good. My guide said that breakfast is by-far the best meal. They also do not force you to purchase a meal plan, and since most housing buildings have their own kitchens, it would probably be cheaper just to do a little grocery shopping and cook for yourself.

Surrounded by a few restaurants like Wendy's, McDonald's, and the local favorite: Cookout.
James from Johnson City, TN
Honestly, I do not advise you to purchase a meal plan if you have other ways to get food. (microwave or kitchen in dorm) They are unbelievably expensive and the food just isn't that good. There are places such as Quiznos, Starbucks, and Chick-Fil-A in the Culp Center that are great places. I give it five stars just because they have other options for students.
