    The group I went to at a chicken restaurant and it was not even a block away. It's very close to good eateries.

    The cafeteria food doesn't really supply a lot of healthy options, in my opinion. They also have horrible hours. However, they're open on Thanksgiving break, so the out of state students who can't go home have something to eat on the Holiday.

    The food and dining on campus is great only on tuesdays in the cafe. Tuesdays in the cafe is called fried chicken tuesdays and that is like the day everyone looks forward too! But other than that you can go to the express where there is Burger King, Taco Bell, and Panda Express. But the downside too that is on the weekend its only open till 9 :( . And some times they close earlier than that.
