What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
the food is actually quite tasty for school food. there's not a lot of dining options, but the cafeteria has a nice selection and there is a school run hang out with fast food options like pretzels, popcorn, and burgers.
Sara from Littleton, CO
There are a lot of options available to your liking, both on campus and around town. Thereâ??s the Gizmo, Oak Room, Grab-n-go, Hard Knox Café and other places to go. But if youâ??re looking for something else, thereâ??s a Pizza Hut, Mexican restaurant, McDonalds, and other places to go.
Adilene from Atlanta, GA
Their food is delicious, nutritious, and amazing! I can never get enough of their food.
Brenda from Chicago, IL
The cafeteria food is good, and the Gizmo is also really good. As a small school, we may not have as much of a large menu, but the food is delicious and we love it. There are restaurants in town that deliver to the school or aren't that far away to walk.
Courtney
Personally, I love the variety of food at Knox, although some do complain that it gets old. We have several dining options, including the caf, which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a restaurant-type sit down eatery called the Gizmo, where you can study while you snack or go for a meal at an odd time or if the caf is crowded.
Derinn from Springfield, IL
The food here is mediaocure. But but that is just the Cafe. There is also a grocery store and a restaurant known as the Gizmo. These are great places to spend your Dining Dollars for great items to snack on or feast upon. Dining Dollars are fake dollars placed on the students ID card essentially making it a Visa card but only for these few places on campus.
