Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Jul-25-2016 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    i ate at wentworth's cafeteria during my time there. i'm assuming some of massart's full-time students eat there as well, so it might be important for prospective students to be aware of the quality of wentworth's cafe. the food there is ok, but there are a ton of unhealthy food options and very few healthy options. pretty much everyone eats fried chicken, and the quality of the food isn't anything to write home about, especially not the pastries. the prices are high, too (but that's just college cafeterias). the staff seem unenthusiastic and impatient. perhaps massart's own cafe is better?

    It's college, what do you expect? Needs more healthy options besides salad and limited fruits/vegetables. Too much fried chicken, burgers, pizza, etc..

    The food is pretty mediocre. Not a huge amount of options. However, there are two cafeterias because one is shared with Wentworth.

    The dining hall at MassArt is not fantastic. I generally stick to soup and salad (although oddly enough, the sushi is quite good) when I eat there. However, the variety of cuisine throughout Boston makes up for the lacking cafeteria food. You have to nose around and look for it, but there is affordable (imagine that!) food that tastes like four or five star quality. (And most places deliver!)

    The on campus dining hall is awful, frankly. I was once given food poisoning from eating there, so I have since stopped giving them my business.

    Chartwells is the company that's represented in the MassArt cafeteria. The food is a mixture if qualities. It all depends on your taste. They have a good variety of food to suit a variety of people.

    The on-campus dining is really not great. Fried food, sandwiches/wraps, etc. catered by Chartwells. You're required to have a meal plan your first year and if you're living in the dorms, but it's really not great food.

    Nonexistent. The majors often feel like a kind of brotherhood (or sisterhood, or just a kind of hood, to be all-inclusive), but there are no fraternities or sororities at the school.
