What Students Are Saying

4.05 Average Rating
KIVO hummus & salads were great
Pandini's is always there for crap food
As soon as you're 21 - invent in refillable growlers at Iron Hill
Late Night Runs to SHEETZ during study sessions is totally trashy, but completely worth it
Ashley from Burlington, VT
The food at Franklin and Marshall is great. I transferred from a larger school where I was really disappointed in my bang for my buck when it came to food. F&M has a large kosher, international, vegetarian, and organic selection, especially since the fresh food available in Lancaster is great. Several different places on campus use your meal plan as well as the main dining hall.
Georgianna from Frederick, MD
No matter the institution, college students like to complain about food options on campus. Regardless, F&M has great variety and options for everyone, such as kosher and gluten-free fare alongside the typical pasta, salad, grill, sandwich, and pizza stations. Areas where meal swipes are applicable are not just restricted to the dining hall; there is a café on campus, as well as a dining area in the Steinman College Center.
Ellen from Earlysville, VA
We have the dining hall, which has Kosher food, pasta, pizza, burgers, sandwiches, and a salad bar all the time. For breakfast, we have a grill which will make you any kind of pancake, french toast, or omelet you could think of. At night, in transitions to our mongolian barbecue. Theres also home style cooking and vegetarian and gluten free options. We also have a pizza place, 2 sandwich places, a mexican grill, and a cafe on campus.
Ailee from Westminster, CO
The school offers several different meal plans which are all very accommodating to a person's individual needs. The dining hall serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner at certain times and sometimes have themed nights which turns to be the best nights in terms of the variety of food. For those who eat only eat Kosher food or need a gluten-free diet, d-hall has also got your back there. You will eventually get tired of the food at d-hall and will find yourself wandering off in the middle of the night to the on-campus bistro that serves lattes, flatbread and deli sandwiches. There's also a mexican grill and a panini junction whose food I never get tired of. Off-campus there are some really great restaurants that serves different ethnic style foods and some decently priced restaurants that serves great food and caters to F&M students.
