Students at Rollins don't typically complain about the food on campus. The meal plan at Rollins is good for all on-campus restaurants, as well as Domino's Pizza. The main dining option at Rollins is located in the Cornell Campus Center: the Marketplace. This hall is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and though the specials vary from day to day, students can count on the salad bar, sushi bar, and multiple soup options. The Marketplace closes in between lunch and dinner, and for the night around 8 p.m. Underneath the Marketplace is the C-Store, the campus grocery store. The C-Store sells all essential snack items and also has a sandwich bar with daily specials. Even after the C-Store closes, The Grille stays open until 1:45 a.m. The Grille is notorious for its greasy late-night snack food. Beware: The Grille is also notorious for making students gain the Freshman 15.
One thing students should watch out for is the food prices on campus. The Rollins meal plan puts money on your R-Card each semester, and if students don't pay attention, they run out of money quickly and have to start mooching off friends or call home to Mom and Dad. Although stocking up on groceries at the C-Store is convenient, it is also costly. A small container of fruit will cost you anywhere between $4 and $6 in the C-Store! Students are much better off hitting the grocery store or 7-Eleven now and then for food.
