There are lots of great choices and you can find something close to you wherever you may be on campus. There are lots of healthy choices too!
M from Indiana
I absolutely love the food here. We have numerous amounts of restaurants just minutes away from the dorms. Such as, Papa Johns, Subway, Pop Eyes Chicken, Chick-Fil- A, Red Zone, etc. WKU also offers Meal Plans & Meal Plan Dollars. For example, I have 12 meal plans that renew themselves weekly & 250 Meal Plan Dollars that I receive at the beginning of every semester. You have the opportunity to choose your own Meal Plan options for food. WKU also offers to convenient store right on campus. These stores contain different frozen and dry foods that one may need to fill up their refrigerator. You can purchase things items with your Meal Plan Dollars. The city that WKU is located in is known as Bowling Green, Ky. Bowling Green is best know for containing 386 restaurants within the city. Applebees, Buffalo Wild Wings, Logan's, Cracker Barrel, etc. You name it, Bowling Green has it.
