5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Great food, but can be very expensive for college kids.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of great restaurants on and or near the school. It can take a bit of a walk, but once you reach a certain point, there are options as far as the eye can see.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Have to walk a bit before getting to a location (resturant, food stand, etc.) that isn't school affiliated.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: An added bonus of living in a city are the variety of dining options. There are enough restaurants around Massart to satisfy any cravings whether it be lunchtime or midnight.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety and close by options within the campus location. There aren't as many chain food locations and fast food places around the city of boston or close to campus. There are places that are open late which usually have a long list on their menu directed toward students. Some places include student specials and offers but there isn't a tremendous amount considering the amount of colleges around the area.

Huntington Avenue provides a lot of off-campus dining choices in both directions. However, most restaurants are near the Symphony T station. There are a lot of different options. Most students rarely eat on campus, because its expensive, and prefer to go to a near by grocery store. The most popular one is the Stop and Shop.

The Cheesecake Factory in Prudential Center is one of the most popular places for special occasions.  A lot of coffee lovers go to nearby Dunkin Donuts and Starbuks, because coffee at the cafeteria is not that great. Eating out is not popular and there are very few students who eat at a restaurant other than on special occasions. However, for those who like to eat out, Huntington Avenue is a great place to satisfy anyone's needs. There are  tons of options within walking distance. The only problem is the 24-hour food options. The closest place open 24 hours is Seven Eleven, but it has very few good options to choose from.
