Despite gross amounts of money spent on expansion and catchy location names in recent years, the food on campus has not improved much. The food is decent for the first week of the semester, after breaks, or whenever parents are expected to be in town. The rest of the time, especially before breaks, the food is questionable. Students complain that the food gives them stomach cramps, makes them feel starved just an hour after they have eaten, and makes them gain weight even if they control their eating and work out at the Rec, but the number of dining locations does mean that your next meal is never more than a short walk away, despite the quality.
Campus Dining tries desperately, but unsuccessfully, to maintain a façade of trendy and tasty food. West End Dining, the construction of which sacrificed a diverse stand of trees and an historic amphitheater, offers a source for vegetarian, vegan, and organic foods, but the large facility is just another mask for less-than-adequate food. Chick-fil-A and Subway are popular on-campus fast food options, and Sbarro is new on campus, but students say the pizza is the same Wright Place "pizza" as before, just put in a Sbarro box. Those who are worried about the "Freshman 15" during their first year away from home-cooked food should plan to not be dazzled by the food options at ECU. Check the nutrition information on the CampusDish Web site, and work out at the Rec.
