What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
truth be told the food is not that good but it also is not that bad, coming from a caribbean household the food i eat at home is very different than what i eat in the dinning hall. the good thing about my school's dinning is each semester they give you dinning dollars that goes straight to your dinning card and you can spend it off campus at selected places to buy food if for a certain reason that day the dinning hall food is just disgusting.
Ashley from Aurora, NY
The dining hall is not of the best quality but, everything is edible. There is also a pub on campus where you can use your meal swipe to get good meals, and if you ever run out of meal swipes, the college gives you $100 for the semester. Which can also be used at the grind, a student-run cafe.
Peter from Clifton Park, NY
Wells just got a new dining service, so its much better. Plus if you don't like whats being served, there's many other options!
Laurel from Ithaca, NY
The dining hall is opened from 7:30 am to 8 pm, accommodating all schedules. There are vegan and gluten-free options, as well as a "special" and a burger or pasta bar. There's also a salad bar, a noodle bar, and dessert options for every meal. It's hard not to find something to eat here.
Nikki from New Gloucester, ME
The food was great and diverse.
Manuella from Bronx, NY
We make our own fun here at Wells! Jump in Cayuga Lake, or go ghost hunting!
Jessi from Kapa'a, HI
We have a dining hall, pub/pizza shop, and a cafe. The dining hall is relatively average. The staff is wonderful and tries to help in any way they can. They also post allergen information and have designated vegan/vegetarian areas! The pub is newly remodeled and reopened and it is amazing! It's perfect for comfort food and becomes a pizza shop during night hours. The garlic knots are to die for! My personal favorite is the Grind! They make a wonderful strawberry lemonade that is responsible for me spending most of my dining dollars there.
Victoria from Aurora, NY
I mean, anywhere you go for college, it won't be a home cooked meal. I really can't complain though, because we have a sandwich station and another station where it is a different theme each night. Wednesdays is mashed potato night, Friday is crepe night, and Monday is taco night. It is as close to a home cooked meal that you can get away from home.
