What Students Are Saying

4.27 Average Rating
Both Lakeshore and Southeast have great dining facilities very close to them, being Dejope and Gordon's dining halls. They have great variety and serve very good food! Also, if you live in the residence halls you receive a 30% discount on all food, which is very nice. Gordons is only a 30 second walk from the Southeast residence halls, which is newly renovated, while Dejope is a brand new building which is within walking distance form Lakeshore dorms. All of the food they serve is very good and I have it every day!

Like they say, What looks good isn't always good for you. The food is delicious. It will keep you coming back, but the nutritional value for most food, other than salad, isn't to nice.
Louie from WI
Dining halls are great but the selection can become repetitive if you eat there enough. But there are other restaurants everywhere on campus.
Cordell from Barneveld, WI
The food overall is good. There are many different options depending on the day and the dining hall that you go to. The only thing is that after a few months the same food does get to be a little tiring.
Raquel from Chicago, IL
There are so many organic and healthy options to choose from! The food is fantastic, but unfortunately the dining halls aren't attached to all the dorm halls, so they are a VERY short walk away. Also the food seems to be pretty expensive, so I would try to cook some things on your own to save some extra cash. Athletes sometimes get free food as well! I am planning to be a rower and we get free breakfasts and snacks.
