    The food is okay. Nothing to really make your stomach happy. The food is very expensive here. They are on a contract so they can't change up the menu. There are no walking distance restaurants around, nor is there a bus system to take you there.

    I am not too sure about the main campus food (I am a satellite campus student), however, when there is food ordered for different satellite campus events, the food is pretty good. The snack machines are descent, but what is great is that the satellite campus is located in an area that is central to a lot of great dining. A 30 minute break between classes can be a nice relaxing meal not just a quick run to a gas station or grocery store.
