    The food in the dining hall is actually quite good, but the hours are crazy. I have classes for most of the time frame that they give us to eat, so I have to book in and try to eat an shove food into my bag *which is a college no no* or else I don't get to eat, because I have classes scheduled for dinner hour. BUT they have an amazing food bar that's separate, but its just not open long enough. There is a wawa about ten miles away, but you have to go through rural neighbor hoods to get there and its all up hill.

    Buy a microwave as ramen is generally a great substitute for most of the food offered in the cafe. The snack bar certainly offers tasty fast food type stuff but it gets cliche and ultimately unhealthy after a while.

    The food is pretty good and there are a fair amount of options. The only problem at times is that there are not enough options for a vegetarian, but other than that the food is okay.
