  • Each of the dorms has a different feel to it. They all become tight-knit communities given the small size of the school. The rooms are nice, the bathrooms are spacious,…

    Granted, anyone can get tired of eating dorm food. However, L&C should take pride in how diversely equipped they are to meet the health needs of its wide array of students! Every dish is clearly labeled and warns of any form of allergy. There are numerous vegetarian and vegan options every day, along with dishes that are gluten free. The meals are very accommodating.

    The past two years, the food at the Fields Dining Hall has been subpar. It seemed as though the food was prepared by amateurs and something that Gordon Ramsey would not even allow to be served in Hell's Kitchen. However, the few times I have been there this year has been a much better experience. It seems as though they took comments about the quality of the food to heart and are making actual attempts to make it better. I am a bit skeptical of their actual motive though because the catering company that provides the food is on review this year. Regardless, the quality of the food is much better. There is so much variety to choose from for every meal where cereal and ice cream are available all the time.

    Bon Appetit does the catering. It's not very good but definitely edible. You'll survive.

    L&C is known for their exceptional meal options, which include some of the healthiest in the country. Vegan and vegetarian options also abound. It's not hard to be healthy at L&C.

    Cafeteria food is cafeteria food, no matter how you slice it. But the food court really isn't too bad. I've had a lot worse. I accidentally cut through the kitchen trying to find an elevator for my mom and I saw a lot of fresh foods, so I have no problem eating in the dining hall.

    The Bon has wonderful choices, especially for vegetarians, vegans, and celiacs. When compared to other college dining experiences, the food is fabulous and deserves 5 stars. However, when compared to the wonderful food in downtown Portland, the Bon is mediocre. Maggie's and the Dovecote are wonderful as well, but there are no 24 hour food venues on campus.

    There is no greek life on campus, which definitely makes the drinking scene minimal. Parties at L&C are more social and intellectual rather than drunken attempts to get laid.
