What Students Are Saying

4.04 Average Rating
Granted, anyone can get tired of eating dorm food. However, L&C should take pride in how diversely equipped they are to meet the health needs of its wide array of students! Every dish is clearly labeled and warns of any form of allergy. There are numerous vegetarian and vegan options every day, along with dishes that are gluten free. The meals are very accommodating.
Taylor from Portland, OR
On campus food is ok, but you'll want a few extra dollars each week for a trip to the food carts in Portland. Get an in-room fridge for extras, and bring some cooking utensils so you can make your own food in the dorm kitchens occasionally.
Benjamin from Morrison, CO
Cafeteria food is cafeteria food, no matter how you slice it. But the food court really isn't too bad. I've had a lot worse. I accidentally cut through the kitchen trying to find an elevator for my mom and I saw a lot of fresh foods, so I have no problem eating in the dining hall.
Rachel from Bend, OR
The meal plans are a little expensive for the quality of the food. Having said that, the quality of the food is really good. The on-campus food service, Bon Appetite, uses local fresh ingredients and has vegan, vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free options.
Elena from Lynden, WA
The Bon isn't always 5-star, but it has its moments.
Joshua from Anderson, CA
The Bon has wonderful choices, especially for vegetarians, vegans, and celiacs. When compared to other college dining experiences, the food is fabulous and deserves 5 stars. However, when compared to the wonderful food in downtown Portland, the Bon is mediocre. Maggie's and the Dovecote are wonderful as well, but there are no 24 hour food venues on campus.
Shannon from West Hills, CA
L&C is known for their exceptional meal options, which include some of the healthiest in the country. Vegan and vegetarian options also abound. It's not hard to be healthy at L&C.
