What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
The food's not great. Be prepared to eat a salad or a bagel at least once a day.
There are not many dining options. The cafeteria is not bad, but you get tired of it. White Bear and NOM are good alternatives sometimes. Ada does have some great Italian and Mexican restaurants.
Anna from Hilliard, OH
There is the main cafeteria hall- buffet style. There is Northern On Main and White Bear that will take your dining points. There is also McDonald's down the road, subway, East of Chicago, Taco Bell, local pizza places and Chinese food.
Jessica from Farmersville, OH
I did not eat on my visit but the options that I saw looked nice and were organized and clean.
Morgan from Columbia Station, OH
Lots of events on campus and places to hang out are about 15-20 minute drive
Alexis from Batavia, OH
While you will most likely get tired of the food in the dining hall, you will still have other options such as White Bear and Northern on Main
