What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
i never go hungry. it is a small campus and so there aren't a ton of options, but i can always find something to eat and it is usually delicious :)

Everyone complains about cafeteria food. You probably won't find it rated at more than four stars anywhere. But as far as cafeteria food goes, Houghton has nothing to be ashamed of. Fresh fruits and vegetables are to be found daily, and several stations in the dining hall will cook your meal for you right in front of your eyes. There is always a choice of food, and whether you want something deep-fried or vegetarian, you will be able to find something (at least enough to keep you from starving until you can get back to the ramen in your dorm room).
Hannah from Grand Junction, CO
Sodexo is in control this year and they do a great job. There are some days where it's hard to find something you want, but there always is something.
Aaron from Houghton, NY
Houghton dining services include a cafeteria, a burger place (Big Al's), and a coffee shop. Off campus you can find a Subway and Chinese restaurant. Still looking for more? Ask an international professor or staff member to teach you a new recipe from their home country!
