All college students love to eat, and there seems to be something for everyone when it comes to food on Tech’s campus. If you’re super hungry, D2 offers the all-you-can-eat option. D2 is also a good place to find meals specially prepared for vegetarian and vegan students. For a wider variety of foods there is Owens Food Court, which features international foods, deli sandwiches, smoothies, a salad bar, Philly cheesesteaks, burgers, and desserts. It’s easy to find healthy choices in each dining hall, and students can go online to find out nutritional information for all the dishes served around Tech. However, if you’re craving some fast food, take your meal plan and head on over to Hokie Grill where you can visit Pizza Hut, Chick-fil-A, and Cinnabon. Many Tech students purchase meal plans and eat on campus a few times a week. Freshmen are required to get a meal plan and can choose from three meal plan options.
Eating on campus is very popular at Tech, so sometimes dining halls get very crowded during the lunch and dinner rush. With 11 dining halls to choose from and hundreds of different dishes, it takes a while to try it all. Even though freshmen are required to purchase a meal plan, most don’t mind, and some students enjoy Tech food so much that they continue to get meal plans for the rest of their years as students.
