3 College Senior

Campus Dining: Few dining halls, not too many varieties and value is average. There are other option off campus.

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: Pricy food and lack of vending machines

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: good variety of food, but can be pricey

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: There is always something interesting to eat. But the prices sometimes keep me away from certain foods, which is fine, because there is such a wide variety to choose from. And if it isn't the prices that keep me away, it's waiting for my food to be prepared.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: I like the dinning options because they vary and there are lots to choose from. There are vegetarian options and different ethnic foods.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Jordana Lopez-da Silva
View all previous student authors

There are two main cafeterias on campus: one located in the Music Building and the other located in Carman Hall. Students can choose from a variety of cuisines in the Music Building cafeteria, including diner fare (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), pizza, Chinese food, soups, sandwiches, coffee, and fresh salads. The Carman Café features a Starbucks and a full salad bar. Both cafeterias accept cash, debit, and credit cards.

However, most students who frequent the cafeterias also prefer to study there, as well, especially because they can access wireless Internet. The cafeterias are perfect for study groups, and many students also choose to bring their laptops and study individually on the sofas in Carman Café. Upperclassmen tend to stay mainly in Carman Café because of the calmer atmosphere conducive for studying, whereas underclassmen (and some high school students from both the High School of American Studies and The Bronx High School of Science) elect to convene at the Music Building cafeteria, making it a more social (and noisy) gathering area. Recently, a lounge area opened under the Music Building café, where students are able to eat, listen to music, and hang out.
