What Students Are Saying

3.57 Average Rating
The food here is average. It's really the only part of this school I would ever describe as average. On the bright side there are a lot of decent food places around campus and, well, the City is only about a 20-minute train ride from here. The food is hit or miss in the main dining area, but there are nights where the special looks delectable. The Pub, which is an area where food is grilled/prepared right in front of you, has a wonderful staff, but the ingredients they're provided with are often less-than-stellar. Nonetheless, it's easy to stay full on this campus and that's not necessarily easy to say at every college.

In the past year, Sarah Lawrence has been making great strides in providing healthier, more diverse food options for its students. Every facility offers distinct services, which diversify a student's choices for each meal:
In the Pub, students can purchase a meal, or just a snack in between classes. There are options for vegans, vegetarians, those on gluten-free diets, and those who eat Kosher. Bates is the main dining hall, with a buffet-style self service and three seating areas. One nice treat here are the themed meals, from an Italian night to a Latin-American night, which feature specialty foods and music blasting all around. There are meals for holidays and before the Formal dances as well. Just try not to overeat and be aware of what you are eating.
The Black Squirrel is a great hang-out spot with a student-run milkshake bar that offers both regular and non-dairy shakes, as well as cookies, popcorn, ramen, and bagels or toast. It all depends on what they have in stock for that week.
The Atrium Cafe, located in the Visual Arts Building, mostly serves coffee and tea, but has some snacks and breakfast pastries for sale as well.
The library's Copyright Cafe, installed summer 2014, was a massive hit this year. It provides smoothies of all kinds--even coffee smoothies�as well as coffee and hot chocolate. Students can do work here, and during conference week it is often home to special items such as free coffee and donuts or free granola balls.
Finally, Hill2Go is located in the Hill House dorm, and is a miniature grocery store available to all students.

Despite the small social scene here, with rumors of students flocking to the city for the weekend, there is a party community on the weekends, with school sponsored events sometimes being a main attraction.
Gotta love it
Dining options are not the best, but that's really not the reason you'd choose to come here anyway :)
Lydia from Scottsdale, AZ
the food is largely tasteless most of the time but it is edible.
CAROLYN from Miami, FL
Only two actual dining venues on campus. It would be nice to have a few more options.
