What Students Are Saying

3.61 Average Rating
The cafeteria always has a large variety of options, both healthy and not so healthy.
Libbie from Stillwater, MN
There are a ton of options on and off campus to eat. There is a brand new dining hall being built for the students that will be finished in the spring of 2017 and a ton of other fast food options in the Student Union and in respective res halls.
Alyssa from New Richmond, WI
The food plan is great for those who want easy access to food. In my opinion, the price per meal of the food plan for the cafeteria is a little expensive for my taste but it's worth it if you eat a lot and don't mind mostly the same options over time.
Tuan from Bloomington, MN
The food is a lot better than most colleges, and they give you so many different options to chose from.
Taylor from Rogers, MN
my first semester was the all you can eat plan in the cafeteria. i switched it up in the second semester to allow more options. the good thing about the dining is you can always find someone to eat with.
