    Food ranges day-to-day. There are nights the foo is remarkably good and there are also those nights that you'll rather eat cereal.

    Many days, the food is good. And if none of the hot options look good, the sandwich bar is always open!

    Everyone says that the food is better than last year. It was great at the beginning of the semester, but lately it seems to be going downhill. It really needs some work... Otherwise it is hit and miss.

    The food and dining at Dordt College now exceeds everyone's expectations. The college recently upgraded services, so the food is exceptional quality without costing much more! With multiple selections of food at each meal and a large variety each week rather than a weekly meal schedule, the food and dining service ensures that students never get bored of the food.

    Breakfast is usually the best meal of the days, even though it is the same every day. The main lunch meals are okay, not really the greatest but there is an Ala Cart line if needed. Supper is a coin toss, there could be great supper meals and then some really bad ones.
