3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Denison recently changed from Sodexo to Bon Appetit, which is just slightly an upgrade. After the first week or two you will basically have the lunch and dinner options memorized. The best places to eat on campus are Slayter and Huffman.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Just like any other college, the food gets repetitive. There are vegetarian and some gluten free options. My favorite places to eat on campus are Slayer and The Bandersnatch.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food here sucks. It makes me sick just thinking of it.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: there has been a change in the service provider which has made the quality of food much better, however the food is still quite repetitive.

The food on campus is extremely average, but it could be worse. The food options are redundant, and the quality of the food is subpar. While Denison has been trying to better the food options and has made major renovations to the dining halls, the quality of the food is still just average. There are limited healthy options, and the vegan and vegetarian fare is extremely limited. That is not saying you cannot find a good meal every once in a while, but it is rare. Some students say Slayter is better, but you have to pay in cash for the food in Slayter, unless you have Flex Dollars or are doing meal exchange. Slayter Market is conveniently located on the academic quad in the student union. Right by the library and classes, it is a great spot to grab a snack or dinner. There are also two all-you-can-eat dining halls on campus: Curtis Dining Hall on West Quad and Huffman Dining Hall on East Quad. There are three meal plans, which differ in the amount of meals and Flex Dollars you can have. Seniors have even more options for meal plans, with a lot less Flex Dollars or meals since they can cook in their apartments. The dining halls close relatively early, around 7 p.m., but meal exchange goes until 9 p.m., and the Slayter Market does not close until 1 a.m. most nights. There is also late-night dining every Wednesday from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the Roost, located above Slayter Market. With the combination of only two dining halls and the fact that most students on campus are required to be on the meal plans, everyone is in the dining hall at some point in the day, making it a great social experience, especially for first-years. It's not uncommon to run into friends you don't see very often, just by popping in for a quick dinner—or a quick bagel, as the case may be.
