What Students Are Saying

3.81 Average Rating
The food at Geneseo is average to most SUNY schools. Fried this and that but you can always find ethnic and healthy options if you look.
Michelle from West Henrietta, NY
Nothing will ever compare to moms homemade cooking but the food here is pretty good once you find your favorite places on campus.
Student from Fairport, NY
The food has changed over the years, but the food organizations are working to bring more diversity and variety in the types of foods that are made. The campus ensures that they have fat free options, vegetarian and gluten-free options as well. Geneseo tries to cater to everyone's food preference. The dining halls are open relatively late, so if students need a late night snack or meal at 11, they have locations to go to on campus. Starbucks is also a major hit for students, because the environment is quiet and a snack or drink can be purchased in convenience.
Brittney from New York, NY
Though the college has been exploring more ethnic and healthier foods, there simply is not enough variety and the dining halls are often filled with greasy, fattening meals. Unfortunately, the best food on campus is the chocolate chip cookie.

As a vegetarian the options are even more limited, though Geneseo does clearly label the vegetarian options and is sure to provide at least one option for vegetarians and vegans.

The meal plans are highly inflated and not worth the money. Unfortunately, if you are living on campus you are required to purchase a meal plan, so there is no avoiding the food.

The layouts of the dining halls are ineffective and lead to confusing lines and large crowds. It seems that every time Geneseo remodels a dining hall the only aspect that improves is the physical look of the room rather than the food being served. The inclusion of Starbucks in the College Union was a welcomed addition for a break from Geneseo CAS food.

Overall, the food takes getting used to if you are not accustomed to greasy meals, but there are certainly ways of finding healthier options if you don't mind getting sick of the same few meals.
Danielle from Coram, NY
