What Students Are Saying

Colby College has three dining halls on campus as well as a fast-food venue, the Spa. Each dining hall provides a different food style: The cooks in Foss Dining Hall specialize in vegetarian, vegan, and non-American cuisine. Dana Dining Hall serves up hamburgers, turkey burgers, pizza, and fries, as well as comfort foods and pastas. Finally, Robert's (commonly referred to as Bob's) Dinning Hall provides wholesome and more traditional dishes such as its thanksgiving dinner, which includes turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce. Each of the dining halls have a full salad bar. The Spa graces the students' palates with quesadillas, flat bread pizza, fries, chicken fritters, burgers, sandwiches, and more. Whatever your taste buds demand, Colby has it.

Good, but gets repetitive after a while.
Isaac from Western NC
the food is really quite good, especially for cafeteria style. the three dining halls each have a different feel which help make everyone happy! there is a little restaurant, the spa which sells sandwiches, awesome quesadillas, and other pub like food. there are many vegan and vegetarian options as well (mostly in foss dining hall).
