What Students Are Saying

4.10 Average Rating
Food at Lafayette has it's ups and downs like most institutions, but it is most certainly a much higher quality than high school food and the workers are very nice lovable people and extremely flexible with individual needs. About once a month dining services holds special meals based on various themes from Pacific Islands to fast food (it is actually mock fast food that is much higher quality) and it is always delectable. The food hours are quite good ranging from 7am to 130am most days.
Peter from Swan Lake, NY
We have our cafeteria that everyone calls upper. It's pretty standard, but the foods good. Lower is more for grab and go. In lower the yogurt bar and sandwich/ wraps are pretty popular. Simons is a sandwich shop that everyone raves about. Really great sandwiches. Marquis is the less popular dining hall just because of the location. It is a little more family style. Gilberts is the late night food stop. The cookies are delicious and so are the fries. We also have a Starbucks in our library.
AMG from VA
The dining hours and food options this year were terrible. But there in a process of remaking the entire dining setup.
Clare from NJ
Freshman are freshman.
C from Easton, PA
The options are endless, and no matter what your normal diet looks like, Lafayette will surely have something to keep you fed and happy.
Rachel from New Jersey
There's always some sort of party going on if you're into that. However, there's plenty of people doing more relaxed things too. The school often plans things as well.
