What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
the dining facilities are top notch, especially the real food company at moody towers. this all you can eat buffet style dining hall provides an array of different foods. from pizza and burgers to pastas to salads. there is even a vegetarian line that can have the foods being served that day made vegan upon request. you can't go wrong with the real food company. there are also fast food restaurant all across campus such as chick-fil-a, subway, taco bell, wendy's, pizza hut, murphie's deli and much much more. you can never go hungry.
Christopher from Houston, TX
the dining services always offer tons of variety of different entrees every single day. the areas are set up in a buffet style. i love not having to go out of my way off campus when i want to grab a bite to eat before my next class. whether you feel like munching on some cereal, grabbing some pizza really quick, splurge on some dessert, or take a healthier approach and eat some salad, the choices are endless and its great having options.
