One of the drawbacks of going to such a small school is the limited number of on-campus dining options. There are two main dining halls on campus: one in Washburn Hall, which is located on Brattle Campus, and White, which is located on Main Campus. While the food in these dining halls is usually of pretty decent quality, the number of options is pretty limited. There are two separate stations for hot food, but the options tend to repeat themselves every two weeks or so. However, on weekdays, there is always a fully-stocked salad bar, a sandwich station, frozen yogurt machine, two varieties of soup, and an expo station, where a chef cooks up crepes, pasta, or any number of things to order. The food in both of the main dining halls is usually healthy, and there are always many vegetarian dishes served.
Students looking for a quicker bite to eat can also grab a meal from Charlie’s, which cooks up everything from hamburgers to quesadillas to order. Charlie’s also offers a wide variety of specialty drinks and snacks, which can be purchased using dining dollars. The Porter and AIB cafés, located at University Hall and the AIB Campus respectively, offer cold sandwiches and other snacks for students, as well. Meals are paid for using pre-paid meal swipes, and there are different plans that offer different amounts of meal swipes and dining dollars, depending on the student’s preference.
