What Students Are Saying

3.96 Average Rating
Everyone complains about the food at Babson, but personally I think it could be a LOT worse. Usually I can find something fairly palatable, and sometimes they'll even serve something really delicious. You also have the option of eating at Reynold's (the student center), which has a Pizza Hut, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, a Chinese-food place, a Mexican-food place, and sushi. Lastly, you can also eat at Olin School of Engineering, which is a 7-10 minute walk away. One big problem that students find with dining is that there is no place to eat if you get hungry late at night, because Trim closes at 7 and Reynold's closes at like 9 or something.

Food is not too bad. After a while you'll get sick of it but Rey's has a salad place, sub station, burgers, etc. Trim (the dining hall) has good and bad days but overall it's probably better than what you'll get at other schools. Babson is always willing to help you with dietary restrictions (vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, etc).
Nicole from Los Angeles, CA
The food on campus is pretty good. Trim, the dining hall, serves anything from hot foods such as yummy lasagna, mash potatoes, chicken, burgers, sandwiches, and pizza. If you are trying to eat healthy, then you have a choice between salads, boiled eggs, brown rice, sandwiches, and soup to cold cuts. If you want to take a break from the dining hall or you just don't have time to sit down and eat then there are also restaurants such as Pizza Hut and Dunkin Donuts on campus where you can buy something quick to eat.
Kamisha from Brockton, MA
There is so many different kinds of food available. Whether gluten free or vegetarian or anything else there are food options for you! The foods change and don't get boring. There is also lots of healthy options.
