Either it is a hit or miss with the quality of cafeteria food, and every student, not just student athletes can relate to that. My personal experience with the cafeteria food here was definitely a miss until I found ways for it to work in my favor. The cafeteria food when I use to have a meal plan was horrible; either the food tasted good and created a war on terror in my stomach, or the food looked and/or tasted nasty, or the food would cause breakouts on my face. In addition, almost none of the hot food there was even remotely healthy. I stopped eating in the cafeteria, and I found myself spending a lot of money on other food while still on meal plan. After a while, I got tired of wasting money, and went back to the cafeteria and made some changes in the way I approached the food. I had lemons, so I made lemonade. Here’s how you can too:

  1. I definitely agree that ordering food takes a lot of money out of my pockets. Almost every college student goes through this problem even if they go to the cafeteria. The food there isn’t going to always be the best but you should take advantage of the healthy foods they have in there.
