What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
The food on campus is good but it gets old fast. However, we do have a Starbucks, a grilled cheese restaurant, and a Mexican restaurant on-campus. Other than this, all off-campus dining is delicious
Jamie from Wyoming, MI
The only problem about the food is that the Den closes early. The Market Place is open late, but for the students living up campus, it's not easy to make the journey through snow.
Jennifer from Marquette, MI
I'm not going to lie, the food is average. It really depends on the day if its good or not. Some of the options are great and others are ehh. Most schools are like that though but I would say its still good quality food. Also there are food places on campus that you can use campus dining dollars on like Fieras, Melted Grilled Cheese, Temaki and Tea, Smoothie King, Starbucks etc.
Kaitlin from Skokie, IL
For such a small (or medium size, as they say) campus, there are a lot of choices for food. Sandwich station, pastas, soups, salads, pizza, hamburger/chicken/fries, and a Mongo grill are some options any time. There's also a hot food line that changes every meal. The other, smaller cafe option has soup, salad, sandwiches, a grill (for burgers and other sandwiches, pizza, and another alternating hot food line. Both places also have a selection of fruit, veggies, drinks, desserts, and other random deliciousness.
Amanda from Sterling Heights, MI
I enjoy most of the meals. I was lucky enough to have a dorm right near the cafeteria
Cindy from Delano, MN
You can get on a plan where you can get food all day.
