3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The quality could be increased as well as the flavors. I know that they are required to follow a certain recipe, but I would like to taste more flavors in the meals. Food on campus is always overpriced. But that is true about any college I know, so Ohio Wesleyan is no exception. I like that they have started to accept some of the students suggestions. It shows that they care and are attempting to change. It would also be nice to get healthier options in the student convenience store.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Two major dining halls, 10 dining options. Kitchens in every dorm, variety of types of food - including cultural/vegan/vegetarian. Campus food store is open well into the night 1/2a closing time, opens around 8a.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: None of the dining halls are open late and the variety is very limited. They recently remodeled the main dining hall and it's nice, but at the residential dining hall I've found hair in my food multiple times and the quality is pretty bad. The staff is really friendly though and you can tell that the school is trying to improve the dining quality.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Off Campus food points dwindle really quickly because they tax. Smith Hall's food is pretty much the same every day it gets tiring. The quality is hit or miss. Hamilton-Williams cafeteria has better options, sometimes. University Hall food cart is good for a quick snack between classes. The Thompson Store has more options but it's easy to lose food points that way because its the most convenient. Be careful with buying too much.

Campus Dining: The food is ok, but the design of the dining halls are good! The food point system is awesome.

In recent years, food at Ohio Wesleyan has gotten better. There is a pretty good variety when it comes to food in the dining halls; however, the quality isn't always up to par. But a good thing about Ohio Wesleyan Dining Services is that the workers and University are trying hard to get students' opinions so that they can improve in necessary areas. Smith Hall during lunch is a go-to place for students, even if its dinner options aren't as good. Smith offers buffet-style dining and a brunch on the weekends, too. The Hamilton-Williams Campus Center offers three meal times per day and many different food options. There is a small bakery that offers delicious fresh muffins, bagels, and every drink imaginable. Thomson (no "p"!) Hall offers Thomson Convenience Store, a small but hugely overpriced convenience store. It does come in handy, though, as it offers Gatorade, ramen noodles, and other midnight snacks that can be paid for with food points. 

The biggest complaint about campus dining is that students cannot use their food points at any off-campus restaurants. Students would like the option to take a break from campus food, but with the current policy, that is a pricey alternative. One cannot argue that for a small school, a good number of dining options do exist.
