MTSU offers a wide variety of dining options, but they're not exactly cheap—you can expect to spend about $7 for a square meal. In addition to the food courts and cafeterias, there are kiosks around campus that offer coffee, baked goods, beverages, and more. The University has made an effort to provide more appealing options for its students. Starbucks is popular.
A major downfall is the lack of a 24-hour dining facility. The Cybercafé is open until 2 a.m., but a vending machine may likely be your only source of late-night sustenance. And, unfortunately, there are times when even your vending
option is out of order. Many dorm residents have mini-fridges in their rooms, which can be a great backup to the on-campus selection. But remember: Freshmen who live on campus are required to purchase a meal plan, so you may eat a majority of your meals on campus, whether you like it or not.
