Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    It is a mission within the college to provide as much locally grown and organic/natural food as possible, and so far I can say it is absolutely delicious. Vegan options are also kept in mind. There is a store nicknamed The Chub for when you want something to snack on or have a small meal without having to sit down in the Cafeteria. Also, the people who grow the vegetables in the gardens/greenhouses on campus set up shop in front of the store to sell their produce to passerby.

    I am personally a really big fan or our dining situation. Here at Northland nearly 40 percent of our food is acquired locally. We support a local dairy by buying all our ice cream from them, which is so cool! We have a good amount of vegan and vegetarian options as well.

    Northland is committed to buying local and sustainably produced food. Last semester almost 50% of the food in the cafeteria and snack bar (The Chub) was purchased locally. The cafeteria has a nice atmosphere with outdoor seating and you can get food from The Chub when the cafeteria isn't open. The meal plans can be pricey, so get the one with the fewest meals that still suits your needs.

    Northland is run by a company called Chartwells. The meal plans here are required and EXPENSIVE. The student bookstore has decent food, some of which you can use meals for, but it can be expensive. There are times in the cafeteria where the only edible to eat are french fries, and sometimes those aren't even good. A lot of people never to to the caf and waste their meals. The workers there are generally very nice, though.

  • Freshman Northlander!
  • I am a current student here

    You get a certain amount of meals per semester & you get food dollars to spend at The Chub (School Store & Snack bar) and there is a grocery store down the road if you need to pick up something quick. There are foods that are there every meal, which is nice, and a lot of local stuff! There are only a few chains in town (Little Caesars, Walgreens, Walmart, McDonalds,BK, Arby's, and Subway.)

    The caf food is not expected to be great anywhere I guess, but a positive thing going on at Northland is that they are working towards getting more local food in there.

    Food is improving, but the cafeteria is provided by Chartwells and needless to say, they don't offer great service. The staff members are wonderful people, nice and caring, but the recipes are lacking.
