Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are many options for every taste. There's Italian food, Vegan/Vegetarian, and everything in between. What's nice about Ithaca is the town is a food-lover's paradise and that rubs off on the school. A lot of the food is sourced from local farms around the town. There are only three major dining areas on campus, and you learn where and when the rushes will be. Campus Center is busy for breakfast because the grill makes an eggs to order (watch out for that line!). Lunch is typically at Towers, where you can get an excellent burger if you're willing to wait in line. Dinner can be found at Terraces Dining, which is the largest of the three. Late night cravings can be satisfied at Towers Dining with new themed meals every day of the week.

    food is now being supplied from sodexo. it isn't terrible like some schools but it isn't fine dining either. i would say it's above average for a college campus.

    I love the food here, especially because I am a vegetarian and they have yummy vegetarian options. However, with my limited diet, the dining halls often repeat meals, so I get a little tired of the same thing. That being said, there are 3 different dining halls and other food options on campus (those cost bonus bucks allotted by your dining plan or real money), so there is definitely variety to be found on campus.

    I got off my meal plan for my 2nd year but the food and dining is good. There are three dining halls. Also we have a pub where students hangout, do homework, have Starbucks, and eat.

    Food is surprisingly good at Ithaca. Sometimes, it looks like it is gross but if you try it it ends up tasting pretty decent. Some dining halls are definitely better than others, and sometimes it does feel like you are eating the same type of thing all the time.

    The dining hall itself isn't always the best food but with the Bonus Bucks option you are given there is a lot of variety at the Pub or sub connect or Sandellas for great food outside of the dining hall,

    This also depends on which dining hall you go to, but overall, the food is good.

    No Greek Life on campus. However, there is an opportunity to pledge at Cornell. There are also a couple of music fraternities and sororities.

    IC is not officially affiliated with any Greek Life. There are fraternities and sororities at Cornell University, our neighboring school, and there are some underground Greek life at IC, but that's about it.
