3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining hall has good and bad days

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The dining hall is a hit-or-miss. Sometimes it's great and other times it's not - and when it's not it's REALLY not. The soda machines get messed up too and frequently spit out watery drinks. There's always a vegetarian option. And there's a dessert night which can be awesome. When it's not dessert night there is ice cream available of course.
The other eatery, the Chat, tends to taste better - burgers, sandwiches, paninis, cheesesteak, etc. But it's not all-you-can-eat like at the dining hall. They have specials were you design your own meal...like pizza or nachos.

The food is all right. Arcadia has options like a dining hall, a café, and a smaller takeout food place that serves fresh food and also prepackaged snacks. The dining hall always has a salad bar, deli, and hot food, along with desserts and ice cream. The Chat, the smaller dining place, serves fresh sandwiches like grilled cheese, cheesesteaks, hoagies, wraps, and quesadillas. Meal plan points work in both places and include options in the Easton Café, as well. The dining hall isn't too bad and always has plenty of options. The Chat is more convenient for late-night snacks and quick meals. The coffee in Easton Café is Starbucks, but it isn't quite as good and is a walk across campus from the dorms.
