What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
Our dining hall, the commons, is an amazing place to catch up and talk with friends or curl up next to the fireplace and study. The food is delicious, because a lot of it is locally grown. We have multiple starbucks on campus that you can use your meal points to pay for as well as a sushi chef for lunches.

Bon Appetite is the catering company for our school. They contracted with the city not to allow any other food establishments within a one mile radius of our school. Don't let that stop you from exploring off campus options though. Mio Sushi, Thai Ginger, Cha! Cha! Cha!, and East Side Deli are some of the more popular places close to campus.

The on campus food in the cove and the commons can get kind of boring since it's the same stuff every week, but the commons has done a really good job of trying to mix things up once in a while this year. Pizza, salad, soups, and burgers are the staples that never change in the commons. We have stations called carve, global, and bowls that serve different things every week. The carve usually serves things like rotisserie chicken or meatloaf and mashed potatoes (not to mention the mac&cheese which is the best!). Global serves anything from thai to indian to french. Bowls involves the ever popular taqueria, Mediterranean, and even Hawaiian food options!

Serving sizes are huge and I did actually gain the freshman 15...

The food is usually very good. The only drawbacks are that the food isn't cheap, and sometimes the new chefs undercook the steaks.
Micah from Gig Harbor, WA
95% of the food served is certified organic, and with a sushi bar, 4 coffee places on campus, and great Mac and Cheese, the food is superb. Many choices for allergies/gluten-free/vegetarian etc.
