What Students Are Saying

4.40 Average Rating
their food is all prepared at the school, never frozen or prepackaged like in high school. the only school i've visited where when you enter the dining hall it smells undeniably appetizing. they are consolidating their some nine dining halls this year though, so i'm not sure if the food diversity will continue.

Most dorms either have a kitchen where they have a continental breakfast or an actual dining hall with full meals three times a day. There is also a campus center open with food, snacks, and a coffee shop. There is a coffee shop in the library and a little shopping center across the street with a few restaurants,a frozen yogurt place, a deli, and a coffee shop. All in all, the meal plan is a necessity.

In any school, you will eventually miss a home-cooked meal. However, Mount Holyoke food is really good, with a large selection of food for vegetarians and vegans, as well as a kosher/halal dinning hall. Dining Services is very accommodating to people with food allergies, and as a person with food allergies, I am not only able to find food I can eat but also food with variety.

We have several dining hall selections on campus; we have seven all-you-can-eat buffet-style dining halls (located within dorms), and one cash-value Cafe (I am the manager at this dining hall). The dorm dining halls have hot breakfast each morning, and any dorms without dining halls have a continental breakfast Monday through Friday mornings. The food is very good, as far as college food goes; it's much better than food I've eaten at other colleges. The only downside is the dining halls get VERY crowded, particularly from 12:20 to 1 and from 6 to 7.

go to the interfaith lunch every wednesday. you always learn something new and the food is beyond amazing there. i actually really like most of the dining hall's food, there are always a ton of choices and at least something super delicious, but there are days too where i'm just like ... i need emergency salt and a few people bring their own spices to dinner interestingly enough i just recently noticed... hahaha. but overall it's wonderful, and if it's not (like my emergency salt days), that's probably because you were forced to eat in a dining hall you didn't want to by your friends who like that dining hall because it has halal meat that night even though you're a vegetarian and this means your choices will be extremely reduced. xd
