What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Be advised that the campus food is extremely unpopular.
Gracie's, the main place to eat on campus, offers pretty much the same food at all times of the year, and there aren't a lot of palatable vegan or vegetarian options. However, the Corner Store is a great place to shop for frozen meals, fresh produce, or an indulgent snack, and there are some other nice places to eat scattered across campus.
Gabrielle from Franklinville, NY
The food is pretty good. there are several types of dining halls- one that is an all you can eat for one price, several cafes, and other places like ben and jerry's on campus that you can use your tiger bucks at. if you are a typical girl, I wouldn't buy the 21 meal plan- it's just too much food. if you opt for the 10 or 14 meals per week plan it should be plenty.
Lyn from Braintree, MA
Dining for sure can improve. There are no major chains on campus, which can be a good and bad thing. Freshmens generally eat at the typical college dining hall, and not much options are available.

There are various coffee shops on campus, including Java's, a local chain, and shops that serve Starbucks coffee. There is a local chain serving an alternative to Chipotle, and visiting chefs from local restaurants.
