What Students Are Saying

The food is pretty good they have a lot of choices for all, vegan and the like. They also do international foods and have fruit and salad all the time in the Meyerhoff. Friday Saturday and Sundays they have the best foods. Doris is the cafe on campus and although is a bit pricey it is pretty good. I suggest getting the 200 meal plan for all freshman for you first semester at least. most students don't use all of those meals but if you plan on having family and friends come to visit you on campus then you can swip for them so they don't have to pay the 9 or so dollars it costs to eat at Meyerhoff (Meyerhoff is all you can eat by the way). And remember not to over indulge in the dessert table.

We have a dining hall, and 2 cafes. The options for food on campus is not humongous, but the food is still decent. I love getting a hot sandwich from Cafe Doris. The area of Mount Vernon is only a 10 minute walk away which has a lot of cheap restaurants to go to.

There are only two options, but they are quite delicious.

For school food, it's pretty good. The food is much better on prospective student visiting days, so if there's ever a day to each there, that's it. On other days, it's still pretty good. It's better than my high school's food and it's better than MCAD's.

The dining hall is better than most college food but it is not the best. Luckily, they do cater to vegans and vegetarians by serving vegetables everyday and even have vegan sweets.

there is a buffet in the meyerhoff dorm that serves lunch and dinner, glace grill in founder's green (the freshmen dorms), cafe doris that serves sandwiches and coffee in the fox (studio class) building, and java corner for coffee and snacks in the bunting (academic class) building. there's another place to eat in the studio building with good lunch options. the best place for your money is the meyerhoff buffet, since you can get a lot of food for one meal swipe (or $10). they do make you swipe twice if you want to eat there and also take a box to go.

The food and dining at MICA is one of a kind. The Meyerhoff is a great place to eat if you are ever looking for a good meal. Doris is also great if you want really great sandwiches or snacks. But the food is amazing and the chefs asks for students's requests, specifically if we want a certain type of food then they will provide it. There are also food trucks and great places to buy food on campus. The great part is you can put money on your ID card and swipe it for food, so you don't have to worry about carrying a debit/credit card.
