Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food here is amazing during the year/week. Unfortunately a lot of students here like to go home on the weekends, which means that meals are down graded. The end of the school year is the same. However; during the year the chefs will be able to remember your order since it is so small. My friend even had a sandwich named after her since she ordered its obscurity so often. Walk in and ask for a Reba- see what happens!

    Most of the time, McKinstry food is average. There have been many cases of food poisoning. Most of the meat is often not cooked properly so it's pink. Sometimes there are campus or holiday or cultural events so they have good food then. The dining hall is quite small so there are times when you won't be able to find a place to sit if it gets busy. Not good for picky eaters due to lack of options and not good for those with food allergies because the menus don't list the ingredients nor do the workers know what's in the food. Options include grilled food, salad bar, fruit, soups, sandwiches, pizza, pasta, international food, and a home cooked meal type of selection. For breakfast, there is sausage, bacon, eggs, tater tots, hashbrowns, homefries, english muffin sandwiches, fruit, oatmeal, pancakes, french toast, french toast sticks, english muffins, bagels, donuts, muffins, waffles. and sometimes more. To drink, there is always 2% milk, skim milk, chocolate milk, juices, sodas, fruit waters, tea, coffee, hot cocoa, and regular water. For dessert, there are pies, cakes, pudding, cheesecake, brownies, cookies, and ice cream. Buchman Cafe has great food. There are salads and pastas, grilled food, frozen meals, snacks, hot drinks, and more. Staff is friendly and there is decent service. Lucille's Cafe is similar. Off Campus - For pizza, your best choice is I love pizza of Troy. It's cheap and tastes amazing. Other places to check out would be Dante's, Plum Dandy, Red Front, Dinosaur BBQ, Illium Cafe, Gino's, X's and O's Bakery, The Flying Chicken, Brown Bag, and The Whistling Kettle. If you like popular fast food places or restaurants, there is Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, Subway, Taco Bell, Friendly's, Applebee's, Red Robin, TGI Friday's, Chili's, Domino's, Pizza Hut, Arby's and more. In the Spring, there will be a Sonic in Latham.

    They focus on healthy alternatives in the dining hall at Russell Sage, but you can still get chicken strips, pizza, sandwiches, and soup.

    Good. I usually do salad bar or get a wrap. It is an okay selection. But there are a lot of restaurants and markets closeby.

    The food is good at first but when you have it all the time, it gets kind of boring. There is different varieties though but I'm not the type of person to try new things so I get tired of the food.

    Variety of foods, although to the downside of things there is only one dinning hall.

    The dining hall isn't the best, but the food is edible. Some days it may feel like there's nothing to eat really, but there's still the salad bar and the grill with the same food guaranteed each day. Once in a while, there will be a really popular dish that will taste amazing.

    According to tradition, each class (blue angels, red devils, purple cows, and golden horseshoes) is a sorority. If you're looking for parties to go to, there are parties usually every weekend at RPI.

    There is no Greek life. Although they have a club that is similar to the Greek life experience.

    Because Sage is so small, there are no sororities. Other than that, I don't know too much about Greek traditions at Sage

    There are no fraternities at the Sage Colleges. Every class has their own fraternity. It's not like other colleges with having their own mascot is something for every graduating class.

    There are no sororities or fraternities on this campus, although the fraternities from RPI (within walking distance) spend a lot of time at our events and invite us to attend many of their events.
