What Students Are Saying

3.63 Average Rating
the food is decent most of the time, and sometimes very good. there are many options on campus including the three dining halls located near each cluster of dorms. there are several markets throughout the campus, one or more in each cluster of buildings, each with high quality, but most of the time expensive food and drink for sale.
