What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Breakfast and Lunch are very good and there are always a lot of great choices. Dinner is all you can eat and although it may not be great every night for the most part it is fairly decent and there is almost always pizza as a back up.

There are a few dining options on campus which adds nice variety. Goudy is where most students eat because it offers three meals a day on and off meal points. The food is great at first, but can be very hit-or-miss and gets repetitive after a while. Luckily the off-campus food scene is very lively and diverse.Cat Cavern is open for lunch and can be a nice change. The Bistro has the best food and environment, but does not accept meal points. It is very artsy and open late, so it is a popular study location. Their vegan chai cookies are amazing.

Students tend to complain about Goudy, our main cafeteria, but as far as cafeterias go, it's not that bad. There are a few other on-campus food options if you don't want to eat at Goudy all the time. My biggest complaint about Goudy is that it can be difficult to find healthy options that also taste good.
Jacqueline from Los Gatos, CA
The dining halls may get old by the end of the semester but overall they do a good job at mixing it up and providing healthy options for students with all kinds of dietary restrictions.
