What Students Are Saying

3.99 Average Rating
The food here is amazing. There is always choices and good food in the multiple eateries.
Rebecca from Newport, RI
Sushi bar, brick oven pizza, salad bar, omlette pancake stations, and new Student Center ... no complaints! Food can get costly though, as they go by item vs. meal.
Brittney from Port Washington, NY
The food is pretty good and there's a variety. Now that there is a new student center, Flik on main campus is not the only place to grab food. The student center uses dining dollars and has restaurant type food. Flik on main campus takes swipes now and has a buffet of pretty much everything. Outtakes is next to Flik on main campus and is like a mini store with Starbucks, frozen goods, and snacks.

The food and dining on campus are amazing. Once the student center opens there will be even more options for places to eat.
Madeline from Suffern, NY
the food at sacred heart is good. of course everyone has there preferences but the food here is as close to a home cooked meal you can get! the staff here is excellent though and they always look for suggestions on making everything better.
Carina from Stratford, CT
The main ingredient in the university's food is variety! The main dining hall on campus serves a plethora of options, including gluten free, vegetarian and vegan, lactose free, and many healthy choices. Students will not have to suffer with eating the same food every day, because between the main campus dining hall, Coyote Jacks Grill, and Mondo Subs, and Outtakes the options can vary from grab and go items such as egg and cheese sandwiches, to sit down dinners like chicken, steak, and pastas. This is not your typical college menu.
