What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
The cafeterias always have something new and exciting to be served in their clean, nutritional, and affordable atmosphere. You have convenient stores in multiple spots on campus for a late night snack. In our union we hold a Sbarros pizza, burger king, and bagel shop. Swipe your WIU student card at ease to pay for everything you pay off your meal plan or pay with cash. You also can find great student jobs at these locations for the extra pocket cash.
Meghan from Frankfort, IL
the meal plan is amazing and the food is great too. Just be sure not to earn the freshman 15.
Andre from Naperville, IL
Attend sporting events and events for veterans.
