3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: They do offer a lot of options but after a while it does get repetitive so you are forced to get creative. The quality is alright but it's obviously nothing like mom's homemade dinners.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: One of the best dinning selections in our region and most of the food is local and organic. Bacon.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Does not have the largest variety within each eatery and there are only 2 dinning halls. Mom's is open till 3am and offers comfort food. Coffee is easy to get and is through starbucks

4 College Senior

With Wooster’s growing enrollment rates, the College has recently increased the dining options on campus, much to students’ delight. Kittredge Dining Hall reopened as an all-vegetarian cafeteria, after it was closed for a year to save money. Kittredge offers creative, healthy dishes with a home-cooked feel and gives students a place to go when they get tired of the main dining hall in Lowry Center. To cut down on lines at the cafeterias, Wooster also added two grab-and-go lunch places: Pop’s Sub-Stop and the Scot Dogs cart. These are great options for students who don’t have time to sit down for lunch and can’t stand in line to get a to-go box of food at Lowry or Kittredge Dining Hall. Students aren’t thrilled with the selection of food at Wooster, but most say that you’ll be fine as long as you get creative at the cafeteria. There are many options for you to mix things up by making your own meals in the cafeteria at the salad bar, pasta bar, deli, pizza station, or stir-fry station. Also, much of the produce is organic and locally grown, so you know that you’re eating good quality food.

You should also remember that at Wooster, the dining halls aren’t the only place at which you can eat. Flex dollars allow you just that—flexibility! You can grab a sandwich or salad at Old Main Café in between classes, or stop at Mom’s on your way to the library for a smoothie. MacLeod’s even has a few basic cooking supplies so that you can take advantage of the kitchens in your residence halls.
