What Students Are Saying

3.23 Average Rating
i am only giving this a three because of circumstances that are finally starting to balance themselves out. for the past year or so, we've switched head chefs way too many times, which has made the food a little difficult to judge. our newest cafeteria head is a sweet woman who is doing an excellent job. and, to be honest, if you can't find anything you want to eat in the cafeteria, you can head to wily's when it opens. with your meal plan, you get a declining budget of wily's money, and it comes in handy. if you're craving some chicken strips, a salad, or a milkshake, it's the best place to go. plus, they have some of the best cookies i've ever had.

The food is okay most of the time, but it isn't anything like mom's cooking!
Brandon from Upper Darby, PA
The food is amazing. If you want a special request food they will make it.
Nancy from Elizabethton, TN
Food and dining services are open to feedback! They do respond to all feedback on a bulletin board. Your voices are being heard. Delicious salad bar, soup station, different types of milk and cereal, soft drinks, water, tea, all you can eat buffet servings and desserts available.
Thelma from Charlotte, NC
The food is diverse with something new everyday. They are open to vegetarians diets and have a vegetarian section everyday. There is a gluten free section as well but it is not as diverse as it could be. The cafeteria is spacious and always clean. There is also an on campus grill called Wily's. The food there is very good and it is nice to go there and hang out while you eat.
