We Asked You: What do you think about the availability of food on campus?

By: Kerry Garrett


Jo Polizzotto: “While there are opportunities for affordable and nutritious meals on campus, like the Grill, SubConnection, even the Express, it would be nice to see a little more variety in food options for students. However, I do really like having a salad bar available, vegetarian options, as well as Starbucks.”

Amber Brown: “I wish that there were dinner options on campus. I also think it would be beneficial to have a pizza bar or a pasta bar. Having the different meals of the week is great. It allows people to have a variety of warm meals that are not just handheld foods.”

Nicholas Good: “My opinion on the food availability on campus is that there is, in fact, food! It’s nothing special, and I find that every time I go to the Grill, I’m left with the distinct impression that my dime might have been spent better elsewhere. Usually, that somewhere is one of the many restaurants nearby. When I’m desperate, I rest assured that I can hit one of the vending machines. Pop-Tarts and the like are all good, but not really worthwhile. Ultimately, I prefer the strategy of bringing whatever I need to eat.” 

Sami Wright: “It’s good! But I do think that there should be more variety for sure. It’s always the same food. I do also wish there were more hours, such as dinner hours and longer lunch hours.”
