What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
There are two dining halls, and other options such as the cafes, but overall the food selection is fairly limited and mediocre.
Nicholas from Loudonville, NY
The food can get repetitive but it is overall good. I would like to see more of a variety and better flavors on meals.

Dining is by far Wheaton's worst attribute. It's not horrible, but it definitely lacks. If you're willing to walk to upper campus (which isn't bad, it just means you can't be lazy), you can go to Emerson, which has great food. Emerson's limit is its hours, which are rather limited. Chase, the dining hall on lower campus with longer hours, is more of a comfort food hall. Chase Square has good food (pasta, stir fry, a salad bar, a variety of soups, and prepared meals and sides), but Chase Round is a grill with some pizza and leftovers from Chase Square's dinner. Once you know how to work the food system at Wheaton, however, you'll be fine.

Two on-campus dining halls are available for all students on campus. With unlimited points on every student's meal plan, feel free to visit as many times as your heart desires. And trust me, you will come back for more!
Alfonso from Brooklyn, NY
Honestly, the food can be better quality and healthier.
One good thing is that chase is open until 12am, which is helpful when it comes to tight schedules.
The deserts are great, but the food in general can improve.
