    Our dining hall always has lots of many different food options. They always have pizza, grilled cheese, chicken, salad bar, a make-your-own wrap station, and they always have different daily dishes, which are always very good. They also have great hours and you get unlimited swipes, so you can go in as often as you want, which is great if you are super busy.

    The food is okay, and you will have an unlimited food plan. The main dining hall is open really early and stays open extremely late.

    I'm not going to sit here and lie to you. The food is slightly bi-polar. Some days you'll have foot that just feels like angels have begun to sing in your mouth and other days, you don't even want to touch what they serve. Here's a tip: the pizza, hamburgers, fries, and the sandwich bar are ALWAYS perfect options. Plus, the French toast, pesto, and waffle fries are rare but amazing dishes here at Bridgewater. K=Get a full plate of them when they show up.

    The food is not great. Not a lot of variety. Even after we got a new food vendor.

    The food is pretty good for being a college. While there are no fast food places on campus, Harrisonburg is only a short drive away.
