Hello, you guys~. It’s week 4 already! Time flies, don’t you think? For this post I am talking about Mesa Commons, the last residential dining facility that I’m going to cover before I move onto something else. : )
I have a friend who lives in Mesa Court, so I have had the chance to go and eat at Mesa Commons before. It was only one time, however, as she would usually come over to Pippins since she would be in my area. I don’t really recall much from Mesa Commons besides the fact that it had multiple seating areas, including an sitting area that was an extended balcony–which I thought was pretty cool. Pippins doesn’t have that. : )
Mesa’s second floor is also wider and not as cramped as Pippins, and it kind of reminded me of a high school cafeteria. Now that I think about it, all of Mesa Commons reminded me of a high school cafeteria. Quite the nice atmosphere if I do say so myself, especially since I kind of miss my high school.

There are a total of four seating rooms in Mesa, including a room that has a bunch of TVs. It’s rather cool. : D This particular dining facility does not provide as many food stations as Pippins, but it includes the following: main dish, dessert, salad, grill, deli, and the drinks. Due to the limited food selection, I didn’t quite like Mesa and would prefer Pippin. I’m not really a picky eater, but if Mesa can’t provide then I’m pretty much going to starve unless I go somewhere else.
Do you like Mesa Commons, or would you prefer another facility? Do you wish that there were more food stations and/or food options, or are you satisfied with how everything is now?
