What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
There are many choices and mutipule locations on campus to get food and drinks.
Sarah from Highland Heights, KY
So much stuff! there are tons of clubs to join or frats. There are tons of shops and what not right around campus. If you want to go off campus then you can go to newport on the levee which is bout 5 minutes away and has a movie theater, a huge aquarium, as well as many mall shops. Just north of campus is Cincinnati, Ohio and there is tons to do there.
Beau from Cincinnati, OH
There is a good variety of cuisine available in the Student Union towards the center of campus. The cost is not the best, but it's about the same you would pay off-campus. I do not have experience with the dorms' dining facilities, though.
Candice from Dayton, KY
Again, I live off-campus, so I rarely eat on campus. However, I do know there is a pretty wide selection in the Student Union, and I have yet to dislike a meal when I do eat on-campus. However, I wish there were places open later.
Paige from MI
There are soooo many different restaurants on campus. We have a lot of healthy choice restaurants and little convenient stores. We also have a Starbucks on campus.
