    The food here is quite good. The food service offers a wide variety of foods from different cultures (American, Chinese, Italian, etc.). The food quality is generally better than what I've tasted on state campuses before.

    There are two options of places to eat meals. Both are decent options. They aren't always open, though.

    With multiple choices at each meal, and the option to make your own waffle or omelet, and ice cream at every meal, it is hard not to be satisfied after eating. Not feeling the cafeteria? The Viking Village is a great alternative providing anything from pizza to burgers, even grilled cheese, all made fresh right in front of you.

    I love the food here at Bethany. Especially in the Viking Village. There are two different areas to eat with different times.

    The food is so good! There are so many different choices to offer in the cafeteria. There are different types of food every night so it does not get boring.

    There are two different choice for food. The V (aka the viking village) and The Caf. (aka our cafetiere and buffet food choice) I work in the Caf for work study and get free meals when ever I work. and the if you don't like what is on main line that day there is always the choice of cereal, waffles, sub sandwiches, and or salads. Then in the V there is a good selection of 'fast foods' it isn't fast service but you can take food out unlike in the caf, plus it is a more hang out type place to eat then in the caf. Personally, both dinning selections are Amazing!

    the food in the caf is really good, especially on their specialty nights! it's also really fun and relaxing to hang out in the viking village, which offers fast-food style dining. there are a bunch of tvs and couches in there, so the atmosphere is relaxing.
