What Students Are Saying

3.59 Average Rating
EKU has several different food options for students. The Fresh Food Company provides Upstairs Powell, the main dining cafeteria for students, with delicious food such as pizza, pasta, salad, grilled food, and home cooking. There are many different options daily. If you're in more of a hurry and need a quick fix, Downstairs Powell is the place for you. Twisted Taco, The WEDGE, Chick-fil-A, Grill Works, and Subway are open all day every day to provide a delicious meal for students. Other places on campus include Cuisine, Einstein Bagels, Starbucks, and Stratton Cafe. EKU also offers a small store called P.O.D. located in both the Business Center and Downstairs Powell.

Food at EKU is probably better than UK. Healthy choices are always an option, which is a big thing for me, and everything is always fresh and delicious. They also have decent fast-food options in Powell, if you like a greasy meal.
