What Students Are Saying

4.18 Average Rating
The food is DELICIOUS! Usually college food is fattening and bland but there is so much of a variety and Scranton and all of the students love it! There are about five different places students can get food on campus. There is a cafeteria, a Chic-fil-a, a mexican place, a starbucks, a quiznos, and a few other areas to get food.

Hit or miss
Current Sophomore
The dining options are really good. As a freshmen you have unlimited meal swipes to use at the cafeteria style (which was rated one of the top in the nation for being so good and having so many different options daily), Einstein's bagels, or are fast food area which has pizza, chick-fila, zoca, and Quiznos. Starting the next year, you have availability to the Montrone pod which has really great fresh food such as chicken nuggets, grilled chicken, pulled pork, panini, and fresh made salads.

BEST.FOOD.EVER
Sarah from Sykesville, MD
The on-campus cafeteria has lots of dining options, usually with a few dinners and sandwich types to choose from each lunch and dinner time. Weekend brunch is a campus favorite. The quality of food is much better than other schools I have visited. It is like eating at a restaurant every night, rather than a high school cafeteria. There are a few fast service locations on campus, with a wide variety of options. The campus is fairly small, so you are never too far from the food, and often have time to stop and grab something between classes. If you head a block or two off-campus, there are a ton of great dining choices in downtown Scranton, that definitely should not be missed!

the food is very good and the servers are very kind. there are many options and they are willing to help you if you have food allergies, are vegetarian or vegan.

The dining options are great. You can choose from 3rd floor DeNaples (normal college cafeteria cuisine with an upscale option such as lobster and steak, etc.), 1st floor DeNaples (Chick-fil-a, Quiznos, Starbucks, etc.), or the POD (salads and sandwiches). Everything is delicious!
