Although most agree that the food is better and has a larger variety and a better presentation, many seem to feel that the trade-offs in terms of space just haven’t been worth it. The changes at the dining hall are heralded with more optimism. Now there is a make-your-own waffle station and made-to-order omelets with a staggering array of filling options. The made-to-order pasta station is amongst the most popular food choices.
The addition of KIVO is a student favorite, and the chicken salad is a must have. Pandini’s, located in Steinman, is a vaguely Italian pizza and pasta lunch stand. Quizno’s occupies the porch of Marshall-Buchanan hall, which is a great place to eat after hitting the frats. There is also Jazzman’s on the ground floor at the Barnes and Noble bookstore. It is in a prime location for coffee or a muffin and provides room for students to socialize and work between classes. Again, the lack of space has become a common refrain, with fewer than two dozen seats in the immediate area. Hopefully, as the school gathers feedback on the changes, they will make a corresponding shift in practices. If you are a vegetarian or a health-conscious eater, good luck, because they options are fairly limited.
