What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The food here is great
Nathan from Baltimore, MD
The food is a lot better than most schools. Always a lot of variety and the dining staff try to make things fun with cupcake bars, grilled cheese stations, brunches till 1:45 on the weekends, etc.
Kristal from Swampscott, MA
Since I was a freshman in 2009, food services have improved considerably. The traditional, buffet style dining hall offers rotating meals at several stations, along with always having the staples such as grilled cheese, grilled chicken, hamburgers w/fries, create-your-own pasta dish, and sandwiches. Soy milk is readily available, and the coffee and tea stations are very good. Yes, there are to-go cups. If you have very little time between classes, you can elect to get a pre-made to-go meal instead of going into the dining hall. Regarding the a la carte dining hall, stations include: grill, Mexican cuisine, pizza, sandwiches, and sushi. As of this fall, Dunkin' Donuts has arrived on-campus!
Trevor from Providence, RI
The food is definitely better than the high school cafeteria. There are two cafeterias on campus. Between the two, there's a lot of choices.
Anonymous from Lakeville, MA
The food was good, with plenty of options and choices.
Emily from Morris Plains, NJ
I love the food there, honestly. I am a super picky eater and this is one of the reasons I chose PC. There are two dining halls, and most of your meals you will eat in Ray. Ray is a buffett with fresh cooked food like pasta, mashed potatoes, grilled cheese, chicken, french fries, pizza and handmade sandwiches. Every day the main corse changes but the staple foods (cereal, salad bar, ice-cream machine, chicken pasta, etc.) stay the same. There is always plenty to eat and THE BEST DESERTS!!
Meg
Good food and some healthy choices. Wish more fresh fruit and vegetables were available. Widh my mom cooked here!
Mac
As a smaller school, there are only a few dining areas on campus. The main dining hall is acceptable but not exceptional. However, the restaurant scene in the city of Providence is incredible.
