What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
Food is good and there are many choices and alternative that just one cafeteria. You will definitely not go hungry.
Jacqueline from Ashland, PA
The food is good. There are three different places to eat on campus with plenty of options, they are just pretty expensive like any other college. There are also many different places to eat about two blocks from campus. Any kind of cuisine is a short walk away...I love that!
