What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
You can get an a 5 or 7 day meal plan that will allow you to eat at the dining halls on campus. (Essentially this is all-you-can-eat, which can either be a good or a bad thing.) If you take a short walk from campus, there are a ton of restaurant options as well. Something for everyone; Thai, Mexican, Pizza, Mediterranean, BBQ, etc. There are also a few places located inside of the Union.

Varies. Some days are great and some are just okay. There are also days where you just aren't feeling any of the food options. The Student Union has a Starbucks, Runza, and Subway (among other things) and there are three grab and go lunch options, along with every residence hall having an in-hall dining location.
