What Students Are Saying

3.44 Average Rating
Both of the eateries on-campus (Stackz and Biscotti's) have a wide variety of foods, which are popular with one and all. I hear the pizza and burgers are particularly delicious, and if you prefer fresh fruits or vegetables, the campus offers these and other healthy options as well. I enjoy the coffee at both places.

I have lunch 3 times per week on campus. Meals are reasonable and there is a better than average variety.

The food is healthy and you have plenty of choices of food to choose from.
Antwan from Washington, DC
The cafeteria is pretty nice, its clean and the servers are friendly. They have everything from chicken fingers to pizza, to fajitas and sushi, and they even sell frozen food. The food there is good but some people get bored with the same pattern after a while. They sometimes prefer to buy there own food because the price is high especially for those students that do not have a meal plan.

Stacks (the campus cafeteria) is amazing, I live for their breakfast sandwiches. Also, Biscotti's serves Starbucks drinks, even specialty ones and you can pay with your meal plan! How awesome is that?
