What Students Are Saying

The food here is great, I have eaten there every visit I go to and each time there are different meals. There is a variety of meals and they are absolutely delish and that is coming from someone who is picky with food.

Food is better here than other campuses I've been to, but not the best. There are a lot of different places to eat on campus and Ele's (The Periodic Table) in the basement of the science building is definitely the best! It has Panera Bread style soup and salads and sandwiches. However, it is pretty expensive comparatively. Healthy food options like salads in Benny's can also go over the exchange limit (making you spend flex or cash) if you add protein, which is disappointing. Overall, there is great variety, but limited healthy and vegetarian foods. It is nice that the director of our Food Services is willing to work with students in order to take their feedback into account when making menu changes.

The student activities committee (which anyone can be a part of!) always has events happening on the weekends and throughout the week. There's never really a dull moment. In addition some SU traditions that students love are: spring weekend, Christmas candle light service, President Lemon's reading of The Night before Christmas, faculty serving students Thanksgiving dinner, St. Patty's weekend, sporting events, and so much more.

There are technically five places on campus to get food. There is a cafeteria with a variety of options, a bistro with many made-to-order sandwich and wrap options as well as snack items, a coffee place, a Mexican food place, and a place that offers paninis and sandwiches. Between the five places, there is always a place to go. Also, there are many eateries off campus that are in walking distance if you want to grab a bite when the dining places aren't open. In addition, there are several restaraunts and places to get food that are only about a five minute drive away.

For me personally, the caf is a hit or miss kind of deal. You might hit the jackpot and they serve your favorite food, or you might just end up grabbing something. However, the food is not terrible by any means, and the salad bar is phenomenal. There are other places to eat: Clyde's in the athletic complex does Mexican, and Benny's in Deg does sandwiches and grill. The Periodic Table has notoriously great paninis, and there is a Java City on campus also.

The food isn't bad, but I don't think it's good either. We do have multiple places to eat on campus that you can use a meal swipe for. So we have a lot of variety on campus and there is some food place open all throughout the day. So you can eat according to your schedule.

I was really torn between 3- and 4-stars on this one. The food is not spectacular. It's inconsistent - some days it's really good, and other days it's really bad. This just goes for the dining hall, where there are a good number of options, but sometimes the staff really just misses the mark on a good meal. However, there are other options. There is a cafe that offers made-to-order burgers, sandwiches, fries, wraps, and other foods. Also, there is a cafe with Mexican food (tacos, burritos, quesadillas) and a cafe like Panera Bread that serves fresh bread sandwiches, soups, and pastries. There is also a campus coffee house that creates its own drinks (like a variation of butterbeer) Campus also added a Starbucks recently. WOOH!
