What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
the dining hall food is pretty good, but it gets old after awhile. one of the coolest things is the custom tossed salads where you can choose anything you want; they are delicious! the only issue with the dining hall is seating at peak lunch times and that they also don't stay open very late, so if you want to eat dinner past 7, you're not going to be able to.
Kaitlyn from Dodge City, KS
the student center is the place to go when your not on the meal plan after dorm life, but the regular cafeteria offers so much to pick from you will never go hungry.
Danyel from Jetmore, KS
I've heard around the community that there's a vast majority of food to choose from in the cafeteria. The best Chinese places on earth are here in town and close to the university.
Trinity from Pittsburg, KS
They only have one dinning hall but it is buffet style, so you have different food choices at decent prices.
