  • Dorm life here is pretty great. Even if you're put into a triple, you will have people to meet and places to go and won't spend that much time in…

    Luckily at Goucher there are plenty of dining options on campus! Here they are: . Stimson- The main dining hall! It has a variety of all sorts of food and on the weekends they have an amazing brunch selection! . Huebeck- Another one of our dining halls, mostly vegetarian and Asian food and are known for their fantastic stir fry! . Alice's- The cafe in our library, great for late night bites and morning breakfasts, you can usually get a bagel, sandwich, or muffin from here, as well as their delicious frozen yogurt, yum! . Gopher Hole (GoHo)- The Gopher Hole is also a great spot for late night bites and has a very wide dessert selection! .Pearlstone- Another dining hall, mostly Mexican food as well as a whole section of food and drink ranging from salads to cereals and Naked Juice to chocolate milk.

    The food is great! there are four different dining halls and each with a different spin on it. Stimson is the massive all you can eat area where everyone goes for dinner but sometimes the food gets a bit repetitive. Another is alice's which is a small shakes, sandwiches, and small healthy foods area. Pearlstone has burritos and chicken fingers which are always good. And Huebeck is the place to eat healthy good food and panini's. The reason for the four stars is cause of the ability to eat healthy and the variety of options of quality of food. They have a lot of gluten free options and a kosher area also.

    There are two main dining halls that both have good options (Huebeck is the healthier option). There are also two cafe-style places that are open when the dining halls are closed (Alice's is in the Athenaeum- where the library is located)

    If you're a fan of food like I am, then you'll probably like Goucher. Between our five dining halls, there are a lot of options at just about every meal, and all the food is quality. The healthy living dining hall is great for vegans and vegetarians (and also got me eating more vegetables than I ever did at home), the kosher dining hall is great for Jewish students, and the main Stimson dining hall always has the best comfort food and desserts. At times, the lines at the smaller dining halls can get long and cause delays, which makes planning meals tricky when you have several classes back to back, but the quality of the food and the service is always excellent.

    The food is good but you probably won't eat every meal there so a moderate meal plan is reasonable.

    As a vegan, food and dining was really important to me when choosing a college. Bon Appetit really does a great job with providing vegetarian and vegan options and plenty options for those who are neither.
