What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
emory dining definitely improved over the 4 years that i was there. you can either buy food through meal plans or put money on your emory card (dooley dollars) or buy food with cash/debit/credit. they have all types of cuisine from vietnamese, chinese and mexican food to burgers and fries, salad and pasta bars, smoothie and coffee shops and the duc (the cafeteria) has vegan and gluten free options.

With the recent transition in food providers to Bon Apetit (from Sodexo), it's going to prove a different experience. But it's likely to be better than before. The DUC offers a pretty good variety in selection so there's usually something you'll want. Cox hall has a few chain restaurants. Being on a diverse campus also means that you'll get a taste of something new, and there's always options for those with a restricted diet.
Food is pretty good. The main cafeteria, the DUC, doesn't always offer the best food but has a solid spread. Cox, the other dining hall, offers a few choices but is over-priced. As a whole, there is a good range of healthy food options but they could do more to add variety in the main dining hall and add more dining options.

All freshman are required to have the same meal plan and it's not that great. The general cafeteria for Emory is not the best I've seen (at least as far as colleges go). The cafeteria has a pizza/pasta station, grill area, wok, sandwich station, vegan station, classic station and dessert. The food is good the first week but gradually gets worse. By mid-semester, I didn't really care for the cafeteria food but it's not terrible. Besides the cafeteria, there is a food court with a few restaurants and an organic-food-to-go eatery in the Rollins School of Health. There is also food places at the Clairmont Campus and inside Woodruff Hall. Overall, not much variety with food but the food isn't too bad. The meal plans can get really expensive though!
