What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
There are many places to eat around campus including Boozel Dining Hall, Rockey's Grill, and new places are being built for the 2012 spring semester. All food is very good.
Taylour from Bainbridge, PA
Starbucks, Weisenfluh, and Quaker Steak and Lube are my three favorite places to eat on campus. Our dining hall, Boozel, is also very nice and accommodating to the students. I am a student with food allergies and I completely back the food and dining on campus.
Cassidy from Zelienople, PA
There are many food choices at SRU. You could eat somewhere different every day of the week and the prices are affordable.
Minndee from Ellwood City, PA
The food at Slippery Rock is hit or miss. The main dining hall, Boozle, has great days and awful days. The salad bar and soups are always good, as well as the pizza and desserts. My favorite place to go is Starbucks and I'm glad a small school like mine has one. I also enjoy the T&B cafe in the library. Quaker Steak & Lube is great when you're craving wings, and Rocky's is great for your little Knick-Knack snacks and wraps. Off campus loactions are great! My favorites include Compadres in Grove City and North County Brewing Company right on Main Street in Slippery Rock.
Elyssa from Tuckerton, NJ
There are 4 places on-campus to get food: Wisenfluh, Boozel, Rocky's, and Quaker Steak n' Lube. The food, in general, is pretty good. A variety of healthy foods are available, as well as different types of food. Boozel is the only dining hall that isn't great. The rest are delicious!
Amy from Coraopolis, PA
We have many options on and off campus for food. Unfortunately the dining hall does not always have the best food. The off campus options are close fast food places and local restaurants.
