  • You will find it very hard to find other colleges with better dorms than Skidmore. No cinder-blocks in site, and you typically will have your own room from Sophomore year…

    We have our own chefs and the food is good. We are a small school so we have one main dinning hall and if you live in a dorm you get an unlimited meal plan. We also have somewhere else on campus where you can eat and also a cafe and a convenience shop.

    There is a wide variety of food choices. The Dining Hall is buffet style. Included in the Dining Hall are many different stations. These include the pizza station (different pizza at all times of day sometimes desert pizza at night), the pasta station (serving different types of pasta dishes), the vegetarian station (including a hot food portion as well as a salad bar), the sandwich station (have custom sandwiches made), a diner (different types of hot food each meal), and a bakery station (filled with different great desserts). There is also a suggestion board for the students to make suggestions to Dining Services.

    The food is great for the most part. If you are a vegan/vegetarian there are TONS of options. Most upper level students live in apartment style housing, so they typically cook their own meals at home.

    I have had the opportunity to eat the food at this College when I visited, and I must admit that it is delicious.

    I've been to lots of colleges and eaten at their dining halls but none have ever been as good as Skidmore's. They have awesome food, lots of variety, and they are really good about catering to vegetarians, vegans, and those with food allergies.

    The food is repeated and it can get boring at times but it is very good compared to other schools.

    The food at Skidmore is absolutely incredible! The dining hall itself is gorgeous. There are plenty of seats available and the chairs and booths are comfortable. There is a pasta station, pizza, and a diner. There is also a Global Cafe which serves a variety of different food from around the world as well as Emily's Garden, a vegetarian station. The salad bar is extensive as is the sandwich station. There is also a grill for making your own stir fry or omelettes. The staff is very friendly and the hours are great. There are also three other places on campus to get sandwiches, snacks, and drinks.
