What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
We have a single dining hall -Valentine (Val). The food can be AMAZING, but it also has its wwww! days. Overall Val is nice, and allows you to mingle with everyone despite being from a different glass group
Ornella from Amherst, MA
Yeah, this is one thing that's universally agreed upon. There's only one dining hall, and it's okay. The food is often pretty good, but sometimes it's quite frankly not appetizing at any level. However- they do have a panini press, salad bar, pasta, pizza and stir fry station for you to use whenever which is perfect if you don't necessarily want the hot meal they provide it. Schwemm's is in the campus center and they have good sandwiches- but you have to pay.
