3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Dining hall is not the greatest but the chat is good. Would be nice to have more than 2 options.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Just the food in the chat is really edible

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: The main dining area is lacking in quality but the "chat" or quick food is really good. Everything is made to order and if you get to know the servers they will sometimes hook you up

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: They have variety of food, which makes it great!

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.
