The Rock is the best place to eat on campus, but FSU is downtown in Big Rapids and most of the restaurants are in walking distance.
Wendy from Big Rapids, MI
The Rock and Westview have a variety of different foods, and selections. There is never a reason to go hungry, and the atmosphere is inviting and welcoming.
Katherine from Newaygo, MI
