What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
One thing about the cafeteria is to expect average food. It is not unappetizing but there are times when you aren't in the mood for the usual. The on campus restaurants are delicious and worth it but expect long lines.
Paris from Las Vegas, NV
There is one main campus lunchroom and they have 5-6 different food stations ranging from salads, pizza, home cooked meals, stir fry, hot dogs, etc. There is also a Chick fil A, Pizza Hut, sandwich shop, Starbucks, and chicken place.
Mikayla Austin from Cincinnati, OH
The food is pretty amazing, especially fried fish Fridays and wing Wednesdays, and college students dream!
Kiara from Ellenwood, GA

Shawna Kay from Opa Locka, FL
There could be more selection when it comes down to food. I was thinking that since this was a HBC that the food would be good; its not. Thank God for pizza hut and chic-fil-a.

Food & dinning isn't always great. It's like cafeteria food . But when your hungry & on a budget , those free meals don't sound to bad. Some days there will be selections that meet your liking but other days they will not.
