    How is the meal service at ISU?

    Back in the day when I attended ISU, steak was served approximately one evening per month. My personal favorite was when banana splits were served. The only limit on ice cream was the amount that you could eat.

    Steak days happen about every two weeks in the UDCC. Banana split night is always during dead week, I think. They say it's a tradition but we don't know how far back it goes.

    I'd say it's pretty average. I've eaten in the UNI dining center and I think that one had better food. UDCC is by far the best place but after the remodeling is done at MWL that center should be good too. Quesadilla fridays are always good.

    MWL sucks.

    UDCC...I'll just say as soon as they took me into the UDCC on my campus visit I wanted to know where to sign to come to class here...

    They took us into MWL. They must not have wanted us or something. UDCC's fries are top of the line.

    I kid you not, I ate something off every section. Got chicken strips, fries, mashed potatoes, a 6" ham and turkey sub, two tacos, two slices of pizza, some spaghetti (which was meh), and had to cap it off with ice cream. Thank God they took us in there because the rest of the visit sucked since it was pouring and a lot of campus was under water

    I think they just redid MWL to make it like UDCC, I haven't been there since though.

    Sadly I never got to eat at the new UDCC. I graduated 2 weeks before it opened the first time (Aug 2003)

    It was around before my time in the late 70s/early 80s.
