  • The plus side to dorms is that they are cleaned by staff EVERY day (as opposed to campus housing, which I think is cleaned once every 2 weeks). Dorms…

    The dining hall, fondly known as SAGA to Earlhamites, always has many choices for food, including a large selection of vegetarian options. There is always pizza and salad options, and the main line usually has very popular options available.

    Definitely not the best all around. The menu's are posted weekly and we have the option of meal exchange to eat a tastier (albeit less healthy) option. Most students don't like the food but there are a decent amount of options.

    The food isn't always the best, but there is a wide variety of food there and surrounding foods places around the campus.

    For the most part food is very good. There is a cafeteria as well as a coffee shop and there are plenty of options. Our cafeteria has a vegan room for those who are vegan.

    On-campus food is mediocre. Off-campus options are limited, aside from La Mex, an authentic Mexican joint, 5th Street Bagel, a popular Sunday morning hangout among students, and Gyslaine's, where you will only go if your parents are in town to pay for it.
