What Students Are Saying

3.51 Average Rating
The food and dining is great they have a lot of variety of different foods from pizza to vegetarian food to an awesome salad bar and amazingly drinks.
Kyla from Huttig, AR
With Grille Works and Chick-fil-A being added this past year, the dining on SAU's campus has improved greatly. Students have more options now than ever before. The cafeteria is not fine dining by any means but with the new chef, there seems to be some improvement in the food quality. SAU has really been paying attention to what the students have to say about their dining experiences on campus.
Shelby from Emerson, AR
The food and dining will definitely be like home cooking. I am very excited about my future at SAU.
Alexandria from Prescott, AR
The Blue and Gold Cafeteria has wonderful food all the time. There are also Grille Works, Chic-Fil-A and Subway that taste great.
