As an incoming student, it’s important to know about the different food options on campus. Every place has their own food choices that you can’t get anywhere else on campus. The following is a list of the different locations, and what you can expect to find there.

The Student Center Cafeteria has four elements to it, not including the miscellaneous items such as snacks and drinks. Going from left to right as entered, first is the sandwich line. It works in the process similar to Subway, where bread type and toppings are ordered as you progress down the line.

Second is the ‘hot line,’ where a you can get hot entrees and sides. In the morning, you can also get breakfast items such as biscuits and gravy, corned beef hash, and pancakes.

Third in the cafeteria is the burger and pizza area, where you can also get mozzarella sticks and fries. In the morning, you can get made-to-order omelets. Those omelets tend to have a long line to get them, so get there early!

Fourth, and finally, is the salad bar. There are many toppings and styles of salad you can use. Some days, in the afternoon, it transforms into a made-to-order stir-fry area. This tends to have a long line on those days.

In the same building, is a burrito line, similar to Chipotle. Some people like to jokingly refer to this area as “Faux-potle.” You can make burritos, quesadillas, and these heaven-on-earth things known as ‘Crunch Wraps,’ be sure to add queso inside! You can find it in the “landing strip,” inside the Student Center.

Inside the Landing Strip, as well, are the Oriental Buffet where you can get a lot of Asian cuisine on a single meal plan, and Salad Toss which is another salad bar, with better options than inside the cafeteria.

Also inside the Student Center, but not inside the main cafeteria are a Chick-fil-A with a limited menu (no Ice Dream, unfortunately), and a Starbucks. Both of these have options to use meal-plans.

Outside the Student Center and next to the College of Aviation, you can find a trailer with Propellers inside. Propellers has great burgers, gyros, and chicken. They also have some good breakfast items. It tends to have long lines, the best time to visit is during a time where classes are in session or outside of normal breakfast or lunch hours.

Near Propellers, but inside the Flight Operations Center, is the Flight Café. It has similar options to the Student Center Cafeteria, but in a much smaller area. There are long lines, but sometimes it’s worth it. They also offer Starbucks Coffee inside.

Far from any of these items the Student Village, which has two different food options; the Village Buffet, and Einstein Bros Bagels. The former has a wide range of foods such as; pizza, pasta, burgers, desserts, and miscellaneous other entrees.

Einstein’s has bagels (duh), but they also have toastinis and pizza. They also offer a variety of snacks and grocery items such as milk and cereal.

All in all, with all the variety on campus, it would take a very long time to get bored with the food on campus.
