3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I have many food intolerance difficulties, so it was often difficult to find options in the cafeteria that I could eat. There was a section of gluten free foods for a year but it was taken away the following year. However, for a student with a tolerant diet, there are many options to choose from. The food is of good quality and lists if it is gluten free, soy free, etc. The Cougar's Den is a great place to take guests and is open later than the cafeteria. There are many options, many of which are healthy. There are also seasonal options which a lot of people enjoy and look forward to. My favorite is the cafeteria breakfast. The staff is very personable and makes great quality food as well.

Campus Dining: The food isn't too bad. The Den is the best place to get food, it can be expensive.

Campus Dining: There is only one dining hall, Metz Cafe, but they do a good job. There are multiple places to chose from, the grill, the main dish, the gluten-free section, the soup, sandwich, and salad bar, as well as odds and ends such as cereal, toast, yogurt, and fruit. There is a lot of variety and the main dish changes everyday. If you do not feel like going to the dining hall, you can go to the Cougar Den, which is like a snack bar. It has hamburgers, chicken fingers, wings, pizza, fries, onion rings, quesadillas, and so much more. There are also two cafes open during the day in Insalaco Hall and Passan Hall. They are more of a quick stop thing, unlike the restaurant feel of the Den.

Campus Dining: The food at Misericordia is typical college food. Sometimes the food is great and other times it is just okay. I believe they do the best with what they have. The variety has improved over the course of my journey at Misericordia. There has been many options added to the menus.

If it's the first day of classes or a prospective student tour day, the food is delicious. If it's just an average day of classes, the food is the same way: average. Most students love the food during the first week of their freshman year, but after that, it gets old real quick. In other words, students have a love-hate relationship with the Metz Dining Hall. If mac and cheese is on the menu, good luck standing in line. But if it's shepherd's pie, the few students who like it have no problem getting through. Fear not: if you like neither mac and cheese nor shepherd's pie, the dining hall offers students nine different food stations, guaranteed to satisfy any appetite. However, after a month or so, options start to dwindle, and students notice the same items being offered all the time.

The Cougar's Den is the ultimate hot spot on campus when it comes to getting delectable sandwiches, Starbucks coffee, and fruit smoothies. The InterMetzo Café is all about on-the-go items; everything is pre-made, so it's a good option in between classes. Whether you choose to eat at the Cougar's Den or the InterMetzo Café, every meal plan comes with Cougar Points, a dollar amount to be used in the Den and Café. When students don't want to use their points, they can use Meal Equivalency (Equiv) during certain times of the day Monday through Friday. Students can go to the Den and spend $6 on food items, and it will count as a meal instead of having to use points. More students use Equiv than the dining hall, so at the beginning of Equiv, lines are endless, and it takes the workers a long time (15 to 30 minutes) just to make a sandwich.

Special Options
Many students choose to eat healthy, so Metz Food Services provides numerous options for students with dietary restrictions. Both the Cougar's Den and Metz Dining Hall offer vegetarian entrées/sandwiches and are starting to add vegan options to the menus. There is a "Menu of the Day" at every food station in the dining hall that lists the vegetarian-friendly food options.
