The Food Critic on Campus

Danielle Nutter on Sunday, 04 November 2012. Posted in Dining

I think food should be at the top of the college checklist when looking at different schools. It is a subject that easily gets pushed aside being just a part of routine but is more important than you think.

Food has always had a special place in my heart. Whether it’s cooking the food or just eating it there is something about food that just makes my day. When looking at colleges I told my parents that we had to eat on campus so I could experience the food. When you think about it food is a necessity so if you’re going to spend money on a meal plan then you might as well like the food. I have to say most campuses today have fairly decent food choices. I found that even if the food is wonderful, there are four factors that you should consider:

  1. Quality of food: Are they using fresh produce, good quality ingredients and in the end do you like it?
  2. Variety of food choices: How many choices are offered in a given day? Do they change it up enough so you won’t get bored of the food options?
  3. Availability of food: What hours can you go get food on campus, and will they work with your schedule?
  4. Are there enough healthy options? Yeah feel good food is needed once and a while, but you are what you eat.

RIT was on top of my list food wise. It really offers a broad range of food that could satisfy even the pickiest eater. Whether you’re in the mood for Indian, or just a burger and fries you have that option here. Here is a taste of some of my friend’s favorite meals on campus:
