Great cafeteria with different restaurant options right inside.

The food is not like mom's but is very good.
Ryan from Lynn, MA
Although there is no dorms here, across the street are two housing communities that the students can live in and walk to classes.
Shelby from Greenfield, OH
There is one large cafe with a variety of foods all throughout the day. There are also smaller cafes around campus.
