Most students would probably agree that if the food in Baker were as pleasant as the people who serve it, they'd all be better off. However, most also recognize that a cafeteria is a cafeteria, and while it gets old pretty quickly, there's enough variety and sheer quantity of food to satisfy anyone's appetite when they actually find something they like. Muddy Run is considered the main escape route for anyone who's just not up to what Baker has on the menu for the day.
One bonus is Baker's vegan line. The dining hall is also centrally located in Ellis Hall, and Muddy Run is right upstairs. However, the main cafeteria is only open for certain mealtime hours, with Muddy picking up the slack for students who need to eat on a different schedule or grab something on the run. And in general, the upper the classman, the smaller the meal plan—they're all sick of it. One place that everyone stops at is Jitters, the campus coffee shop. Different meal plans come with declining credit balances (DCB) that students can spend on snacks and drinks in Muddy or Jitters. DCB carries over from fall to spring semester, but not to the following year. If you're trying to hang on to your DCB dollars, Jitters is going to be your no. 1 nemesis.
