What do you eat for lunch? Three cafeterias--full of variety

Iwate University has three cafeterias: "Central Cafeteria," "Faculty of Science and Engineering Cafeteria (BREDO)," and "Faculty of Agriculture Cafeteria." These cafeterias serve as student hang-out spots, with students going there between classes and after sports practice to eat meals, study, do club activities, host concerts, etc. Each of the three cafeterias has something unique to recommend them, menu items that change monthly with the seasons, and fun events, so make sure to check them out!
