What Students Are Saying

3.60 Average Rating
There are so many different choices of where to eat. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner you have a choice of the dining commons, Subway, Dunkin Donuts, Quixotes, Pandini�s, and the Perch. The possibilities of meals are endless. There are breakfast sandwiches, coffees, grilled foods, pasta, wings, salads you name it. If you ever get bored with the food here you always have the option of ordering food from Chinese restaurants, pizza parlors, etc. You can also use your owl bucks for most of these places near the Westfield Center. For the dining places on campus the quality is great and the service is nice.
Christina from Springfield, MA
The food is unbelievable. Their are so many choices including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You also don't always have to eat at the dining hall because they have other places to eat on campus including subway and Dunkin Donuts. Also, on your school I.D., you have some money that you can use for off campus restaurants like apple bees and friendly's.
Matthew from Tewksbury, MA
Great food and very day could mean a new friend or eat alone and get back to work ASAP. Also a variety of food everyday and places to get something to eat.
Derek from Palmer, MA
The food is provided by the company Sodexoâ?¢, which provides dining services to schools and other institutions throughout the world. There is always a variety of options at the Dining Commons, including options for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free diets. Pizza, pasta, salad, ice cream, and sandwiches are always available. The dining commons also takes suggestions and hosts theme dinners as well as Pancakes With the President, which is a popular event. Sodexo also provides each student who has a meal plan with 150 Sodexo bucks per semester. These can be used as real money at any of the campus food vendors, including Jazzman's, Subway, Dunkin' Donuts, The Grill, Quixote's, and Pandini's.
Lindsay from South Windsor, CT
The food services are great. There is a subway and a dunkin donuts on the campus, as well as two other amazing food services known as Pandinis which specializes in sandwich and pizza, and also The Perch, which specializes in comfort foods like chicken tenders and fries, grilled cheeses, etc. And the dining commons has a nice assortment of foods that it offers as well.
Manuel from Springfield, MA
A lot of people complain about the food at the Dining Commons, but it really depends on what you get. They have AMAZING healthy options at the simple servings and specialty sections, even if they are a little bit of a wait sometimes. Eating by yourself is totally fine and even sometimes nice to get a break from all the people you are constantly with. Not to mention the other food options like Pandinis are SOOO good.
Amanda
The food provided by Sodexo is phenomenal! they have so many selections to choose from and once you enter, you can have as much food as you want. There is even a restaurant, Pandini's that is open later for those who could not grab dinner earlier, or they just want something good to eat late at night. the Cafe is very clean, and you will get speedy service.
