What Students Are Saying

3.33 Average Rating
Food is great! Just enough options- not too few and not too many. Love that the pasta bar is back!
Kayla from Marshall, MN
food and dining are good. most of the food is cooked in front of you and you can always find a place to sit.
Tricia from Mapleton, IA
Lower Student Center: If you have a student ID with flex money on it you can get food for a little less money. They promote the meal plan. Get more flex than you do meals. Meals only count in the buffet, but flex is money that can be used anywhere in the school.
Trisha from Lamberton, MN
Cafeteria food was good. Lots of options and they take requests. Plus there is Papa Johns!
Katie from Cokato, MN
Everyone in the dorms get along very well. Dorms organize their own intramural teams to play against each other, and we decorate our dorms for Homecoming contests and for local kids to trick-or-treat in for Halloween. People are really friendly and it's easy to make new friends.

Food from the cafeteria is probably better than anything you ate in the lunch line at your old high school. Or, if the cafeteria isn't your thing, the on campus food courts have a variety of other snacks and food that will be more to your liking.

The dorm life is great.
