What Students Are Saying

4.24 Average Rating
I've been told that Bucknell provides one of the best food services. It can't compare to eating at home, but as far as college fare goes, it's tops. It's open 24/7 though so beware of the Freshman 15+. Plus the milkshakes at 7th Street are a must.

My friends and I have had visitors who have told us that our dining hall is thousands of times better than theirs at other public and private universities. In Bostwick Dining Hall, or The Caf as we call it, the food is buffet style and you always have a choice of friend foods and burgers, pasta, salad bar, cooked-to-order stir fry, a cereal wall with every type of cereal you can imagine, an egg bar, an awesome dessert table, and everyone's favorite, an ice cream bar with both hard and soft serve. Freshmen are required to get the unlimited caf plan for their full first year, so the caf is often full with other first-years. For the upperclassmen, The Bison, which is located on the floor below the caf, serves as their main source of food and hanging out. The Bison has Mexican, Pasta, Pizza, an all-day breakfast bar and grill, deli sandwiches and subs station, and hundreds of other choices of candy, chips, salads, fruits and veggies, and drinks. The only complaint that many have is that the food here is very overpriced, and oftentimes we have to add money to our dining dollars at the end of the semester so we can eat. It costs a fortune to attend Bucknell as it is, and we shouldn't have to worry about whether or not we can afford meals for two weeks at the end of the semester.

Tasty, but a little pricey. If you ever abandon your cafeteria plan after first year (all first years are required to have an unlimited meals plan), you will dearly miss the desserts.

The food at Bucknell is fine. I personally enjoy the salad bar and make elaborate salads to add variety to my meals. I try and shy away from the pizza and heavy pastas on campus.
Juliana from Falls Church, VA
The cafeteria is great! Seriously, it is gourmet. Fish, good meat, tons of fresh fruit and vegetables (grown locally!), great breads, vegetarian options, and the oh-so-wonderful dessert table.
