Jordan from Milwaukee, WI
Platteville gives their students many different food choices, this way they arent always having the same old lunches all the time.
Alisha from Rochester, MN
The main known place would be Platters, thi is where the typical college food is. However, Platteville also offers many restaraunts and specialty foods. We also have the C Store where you can use your meal plans and points to buy stuff!
Cassandra from Oconto Falls, WI
The food on campus is actually pretty good compared to other schools. I transferred to Platteville from UW - Eau Claire, and personally I think the food is much better here. There are three main options for dining, Platters (buffet), Glenview, and the PSC, all of which are pretty good. The PSC is probably the best option out of the three. One nice thing about the meal plans here is that you have the option of weekly meals or semester meals. Weekly meals give you a number of meals per week, and if you don't use them they're gone. Semester meals just give you a block (150, 175, or 200) of meals for the whole semester (plus 100 points to spend) as you choose.
