What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
Delicious food. One dining hall has an all you can eat sushi bar (this is the dining hall in my dorm), another has a Mongolian BBQ style build your own stir fry, and another has cookies that are to die for. Dining Services recently opened a food truck with a rotating (and delicious) menu that can be found outside the library, near the dorms, or doing late night service on the quad. You will be eating well.

The food is okay; the general consensus is that Steast is the best dining hall, and IV and Swest are tied for 2nd. Rebecca's is absolutely delicious there, and you are guaranteed to find a line there all day. The food in Curry Student Center is expensive, but also delicious.
Kayla from Avondale, AZ
The freshman meal plan is a little annoying and pricey, but the dining hall food is very good compared to other schools. There are three traditional dining halls - Stetson East, Stetson West, and International Village. Stetson East has a great vegetarian room, and an extensive salad bar, with many other options. Stetson West has a Stir Fry Room, with create-your-own stir fry that they cook to order so it is always exactly how you like it. International Village has many different stations, including sandwiches, salads, burgers, hot meal, vegetarian, sushi, soup, omelets, and pasta. The meal plan, which includes either 10, 15, or 19 meals per week, also comes with a set amount of dining dollars, which can be used at many of the on campus restaurants. Aside from the dining halls, there is Wollaston's (the grocery store), Subway, Dunkin' Donuts, Qdoba, Boloco, Au Bon Pain, Argo Tea, and an entire food court in the Curry Student Center.
