Eating on Campus

Students in the Essilor Student Center Rec Room playing pool
MBKU students tend to gather in the Essilor Student Center Rec Room to eat lunch with friends. Recently, the Student Association completely revamped the room by repairing/recovering the pool table and purchasing new games, ping pong tables, couches, and comfortable booth seating for studying. There is a kitchen for students with microwaves, refrigerators, an ice machine and filtered water. There are also vending machines containing snacks on campus.
Students at an outdoor picnic on the lawn on campus
With the famous Southern California weather throughout much of the year, the Fullerton campus has quite a few outdoor seating areas with tables for picnics and snacks. The lawn at the Patricia Hopping Commons or the benches at the Ernest A. Hutchinson Amphitheater are fun places to bring lunch.

Across the road, Fullerton Arboretum is a great venue for an on-the-go lunch when students have longer breaks and can spend time enjoying the amazing flora on view.
