Tell us about the food and dining options.


There are several dining options on campus. There is Campion Dining area (which is an all-you-can-eat food option which is included in the unlimited meal plan) and there is also the Campion Food Court (which has made-to-order food options that uses Declining Balance). For most meal plans, you have $150 of Declining Balance (DB) to spend on food. Around campus there are several other restaurants. There is the Landmark Americana (bar and grill), Larry's Steaks, and Cosi. There is also a Starbucks, Wendy's, McDonalds, and Dunkin Donuts nearby.


On campus, you can use your Hawkcard to swipe in the cafeteria for buffet-style unlimited food. There are many different choices each day, but the food is not that good. There is also another section of the cafeteria that you can use money or declining balance money on your Hawkcard for. This section has food such as chicken wraps, grilled cheese, fries, chicken sandwiches, salads, or premade refrigerated foods for. This food tastes better than the swipe section meals. Your declining balance money on the Hawkcard can also be used at Starbucks and Cosi.
