What Students Are Saying

3.90 Average Rating
The Caf has the same food a lot of the time and a lot of it is sub par. You should also check to make sure your dishes and cups are clean before you use them. But there is a health food place called Freshens in the college of health sciences building that has really good food until they run out of ingredients. They also take meal plans instead of bulldog bucks which is a huge plus. The food in the food court is also pretty good and the ladies at Chik Fil A are generous with the fries! Einstein's bagels in the library is pretty good too and is a yummy option when you have too much studying to do to leave the library.

There is a Chick-fil-A on campus along with a coffee cafe which has been voted by students to surpass Starbucks. I went into the cafeteria and the menu all looked very delicious. There was a salad bar, sandwich bar, and a section devoted to home-style cooking. My guide also told me that if there is a type of food that you really would like to eat, you can make a suggestion and the staff would cook it. She also told me that the pizza was top notch.
