What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
The food here is like any other college, its college food. We have many different varieties and options to choose from which is what I like about it.

The dining hall always has different food everyday. There is also a salad bar, a pizza bar, and a stir fry section. There is also a selection of desserts. If you go in the student center there is a Nathans, a pizza place, a sub shop and a Spanish place.
Brianna from Shirley, NY
The food is awesome, Southern has lots of great meals providing their students. Even outside food restaurants such as Dunken Donuts! my personal favorite.
