The dining halls are terrible. You have to stand in line for poorly cooked and unhealthy food, and the servers will not honor your request for more or less food on your plate. By the time you get enough food and find seating, your food has gotten cold, or even congealed to a plastic-y pile of goop. Gross! Cooking your own pasta and steamed veggies at your own apartment is a much better option. There's other dining places at ECU, too. I like The Galley and the coffee shops. The meal plans offered are overpriced and you're pressured to use up all your weekly meals with little flexibility.
