    There are a few choices on campus but it's kind of expensive for quality that isn't amazing.

    The dining hall is delicious, but there are tons of other places on campus to eat as well. Not to mention, there are many resturaunts in the greater Cleveland area in walking distance or a short drive away.

    I do not have a meal plan, but I will say there are plenty of options! Being downtown there are many restaurants and cafes near by. In the college, there is a Papa John's, and several other places to eat. The dining hall on the second floor of the student center is a buffet. The buffet has decent food, though I hear people get tired of it overtime. But hey, that's what the other restaurants and grocery stores are for! Plus, the student center has free food at least twice a week usually. On wednesdays there is a PB and J wednesday in the student center as well.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    CSU has a few places on campus for food and it's downtown Cleveland so there are numerous places around the school to go eat that are in walking distance.

    As CSU is located a skip away from downtown Cleveland center so the prices are higher than most students expect. Eating on campus is expensive but it is slightly cheaper than going to other surrounding restaurants. Chain restaurants, like McD's, are near by (in tower city but can take ~30 minutes to get to depending on the buses that run) are roughly the same prices as else where in the state, eg, there is a dollar menu.

    The food selection is great! Starbucks, Chop'd n' wrap'd, and Papa Johns are amazing! The dining room also has ample space and also dining patios overlooking the city.

    There are many, many, many options for food and dining at Cleveland State University! The food is so good and you never run out of options! The dining staff that works in Cleveland State are very friendly and the restaurants very clean! Honestly I have never gone into a restaurant by or in Cleveland State and had a bad experience.

    Cleveland State offers a few fraternities and sororities to pick from. Greek life isn't really that big on campus but it would still be a great thing to join to meet new friends.

    I am not part of the Greek life so I don't know much about it. I know there are a few Greek clubs and they do a lot around campus.
