UTA Eats! – Dorm Raid

UTA Eats took food investigating to a different level, in this week’s segment called, “Dorm Raid.” We investigated by knocking on the doors of UTA dorms, to see what college students had in their fridge to eat.
Surprisingly, UTA students who live in dorms eat more healthy than you would think. Instead of eating the traditional “college food, Ramen Noodles,” students had healthy choices of foods stocked in their fridges.

UTA Eats

The first segment of UTA Eats features “What are UTA Students Eating on Campus?” UTA has many options to choose from when it comes to eating off the “UTA menu.”  With that being said, the food and drinks students eat on campus vary based on the student’s personal taste. Students choose to eat on campus rather than at home because it is convenient. Ovboiously students love to eat. But when it comes to choosing their own food they prefer it cheap and something that is quick to make.
