What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
food and dining is located on the first floor of the memorial student center. students may eat in the dining area, chic-fil-a or the panther grill. the bookstore and the panther mart, (located on the first floor as well), carries snacks, and drinks to stock up on for your dorm. jazzmyn's, which is located on the first floor of the library, is a cool, jazz spot that is a lot like starbucks. students may also purchase food from the, purple zone, which is located in the student washateria.

The MSC is where all underclassmen living on campus eat. It's cafeteria styled and offers an endless supply of food. The only problem with the MSC food is the options eventually begin to repeat themselves and the food begins to lose it's flavor. If you become sick of the MSC food you can go to the Chick-fil-a next door, or the Panther Grill which offers higher quality food for a price. As far as restaurants go, students order from a student ran company, Brookcake, Pizza Hut, Domino's, or a Chinese restaurant.

there are numerous options for food and dinning including southern style meals which are great and fast food options as well.

We have a lot of areas on campus that allow you to hang with your friends like the Purple Zone and the Game Room and we have get togethers. We do talent shows and fashion shows as well. There are movie theaters nearby and a great outlet mall close by too.
Yanetti from Alton, TX
The food in the Msc which is the memorial student center has great food.And with a meal plan all you do is swipe your card upon entering at the register and its all you can eat.Unless of course you decide to eat at the panther grill and get chic-fil-la adjacent to the main eating area of the msc.
