What Students Are Saying

4.34 Average Rating
My dining hall is awesome, I have never gotten a bad meal. We have a stir fry station, a grill, a comfort food section, and other random stuff including an ice cream bar!
Margaret from Cambridge, MA
The meal plan is absolutely terrific. It is a little on the expensive side, but you definitely don't have to worry about going hungry. Also, there are many restaurants on campus and a few places nearby where you can pick up groceries.
Jedidiah from Acton, ME
It's just okay.
Samantha from Sylmar, CA
there are several meal plan options and i've heard the food is pretty tasty. some dorms are cook for yourself, meaning that you can buy groceries and make your own food or you can buy a meal plan and go to one of the other dorms' dining halls.
