What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
DAKA is pretty good. Remember, you are in control of what you eat. So if you decide to eat only fast food for two months, be prepared for the consequences.
Alexander from El Paso, TX
the food in the dining hall isn't too awful, its edible. every once in a while (when there are big open houses or on tour days) it's pretty good! the dining hall cookies are amazing though. they have some other options in the campus center, and goats head pub is sometimes a nice change from the usual dining hall food. overall it's meh, but you won't starve.

if you live on campus, you basically must purchase a dining plan your freshman year. there is a dining hall, a food court in the campus center, a restaurant in founder's hall, and a cafe in the library. the meal plan is really what you make of it.
Tori from Jefferson Hills, PA
The food in the main dinning center is usually good, you are able to eat at an on campus restaurant twice a week with your residential meal plan.
Kyle from Norton, MA
I ate on campus in the food court in the student center. Although I love pasta as it is, the food seemed pretty good. A lot of people have mentioned that it can get boring, yet that's how most cafeteria's are. While visiting I noticed that there were other places and also that there is a quite a few restaurants right off campus that you can go to.
Morgan from Park City, UT
DAKA (Morgan Common's) food gets a little old after a while, but there are always other options, and the terms last only 7 weeks.
Corey from Palisade, CO
The food is pretty good. It's definitely better than other colleges I've visited as far as food goes, but there are only a few places to eat on campus. There are lots of great places to eat just off campus and there is a grocery a very short walk from campus. You definitely won't go hungry.
