Tell us about the food and dining options.


The food on and around campus that are not part of NIU's dining plan are good for the most part. Wide variety, decent prices and good hours. As for dining, it is always good to remember "if you dont use it, you lose it". By this I mean if you do not spend your weekly amount on your food plan, the money will just be taken from you anyways. The best dining food is at stevenson which can be a long walk if you live at neptune which is the worst dorm when it comes to food. The other dorms fall right in between for their dining options.
