What Students Are Saying

3.71 Average Rating
In the dining halls, though its all you can eat, most times you may feel you have to put up with the cooking here. The dining hall schedules are frustrating at times and sometimes you may find yourself hungry with no way of eating until the next day. The restaurants and fast food places around are tolerable though, so if you have a bit of money this shouldn't be too much of an issue.

I love the food there because they try really hard to diversify the food. We have your typical American food (hamburgers and hot dogs), Asian food, Hispanic food and many others. They always have vegan and vegetarian options, a salad bar, sandwich bar and amazing desserts. Also, for holidays they set out special food that can only be served during the holidays. On top of that, most if not all of the food given to us is locally grown on the school's local farms by the Agriculture students, staff and department.
