What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
The DC mixes food up pretty well, I actually work there. We try and bring a variety of foods with our Mexican line, pasta lines, burger and salad bars, the Deli and Chef's corner where different things are made.
Lawrence from Upland, IN
The DC food is actually really good. They always have options for those with dietary concerns... Although as a vegetarian, I must confess that I get really sick of pasta, burritos, salad, and sandwiches. Fortunately, the new student center has a food court with Chik-fil-a, a noodle shop, a salad bar, and a pizza place. You can go there twice a week with a standard meal plan.

The food is really good if you don't mind a little repetition. Plus, they have top-notch chai tea lattes.

Speaking of lattes, the campus has an amazing coffee shop called the Jumping Bean. If you need a caffeine fix, they'll give it to you.

Off campus, Ivanhoe's is an incredible ice cream shop that attracts people from other states. It's got 100 different flavors of sundaes and milkshakes. There's a small town by IWU, which is about five minutes away, and they have a lot more food options.

Meals are divided into several groups: Homestyle cooking, Burgers/Fries, Self-serving Sandwiches, Fresh Fruits/Salads, Pizza, Italian foods, Steamed Pasta, baked foods, cereals, dozens of different drinks and a line that serves food from certain parts of the world, which differs from Asian, European, Latin American to the occasional African dishes.
Jason from Wheaton, IL
the dining commons has a variety of food. anything you have a craving for it is almost guaranteed to be found in the dining commons. not only is there a variety but the variety is actually good food that tastes like homemade food.
