What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
There are many food options at MSU. There are two cafeterias and a union with fast foods. There is a wide variety of options to chose from.
Meredith from Old Hickory, TN
Whether you are on the run or just want to sit down and enjoy a good home cooked meal, MSU has plenty to offer. Inexpensive and always fresh, Mississippi State doesn't let you down in the food department.
Melody
The Perry has good quality food. Everyone loves Fried Chicken Wednesday. We also have a food court in the union and there is a brand new cafeteria on campus.
Nija from Greenwood, MS
Mississippi State University's dining experience is absolutely amazing. With what we call Flex Dollars every student with a meal plan is awarded a certain amount of money to use in the Union, where there are several popular restaurants. On the other hand, The Perry- the cafeteria also has many options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and there are guaranteed to be choices to suit everyone's preferences.
