What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
the five star rating isn't necessarily for taste, but for choice and variety. we have many different restaurants on campus in multiple locations across campus. there is even a little shop in the library! if you are a vegetarian or vegan, they have meals for that, if you are a carnivore, there are several places to eat, and if you are a sweets fanatic, look out, because you'll end up gaining the freshman 15 in about a week and a half. as far as known food chains go, we have burger king, taco bell, chick-fil-a, subway, and dunkin doughnuts.
Rachel from Memphis, TN
Anywhere on campus, getting a bite to eat is within a short walking distance, and with classes only 15 min apart this can be a great help. In the University Center, the entire first floor has been devoted to food. There, the choices of dining range from fast food, with places such as Burger King, to coffee shops, with places such as Starbucks. Outside the University Center but still on-campus, many other restaurants can be found such as Einstein Bros., a noteworthy coffee shop and Subway. Also outside the Center, the Tiger Den resides where foods from many cultures are represented in an all-you-can-eat style of dining.
