What Students Are Saying

4.28 Average Rating
Not that great, it could be better.
Ramlah from Brooklyn, NY
The food will be impressive at first and become boring within a month or two. It's good quality and the dining hall staff work really hard. But the menu gets pretty repetitive after awhile and the idea of seasoning usually seems to be something that nobody thought of. Lines get pretty long when there's something good on the menu but it's definitely worth the wait.
Bronx, NY
Great. The food is just okay, but you have unlimited meals and can go to many different dining halls in one meal.
Katherine class of 2014
People give it a lot of flak, but it's really not all that bad. There are lots of options, but each option is at a different dining hall. There are perks to the decentralized style of dining, like intimacy of spaces and guaranteed proximity to food, but the hours aren't great and the quality is not always top-notch. Overall, though, they take pretty good care of us here.
Sally from Lawrence, KS
There are lots of small dining halls and pretty good selection (instead of the traditional one or two huge dining halls). They could use some more kale and fresh fruit but compared to other collages, Smith is pretty great. Make sure to check them all out, not just the convenient ones. Also, I'm vegan and have not had trouble finding food (even in the dining halls that aren't specifically veg).

30+ Dining halls, with lots of choices
