4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Love campus food! Sodexo makes good food and I really miss it when I'm away. I live for bagel bar every Sunday. I just wish the dining hall was 24 hours, but the C-store is open when the campus center isn't, so that makes up for it. Campus Chipotle is pretty good also and I recommend the sushi bar in the Campus center. They will make any roll fresh for you on their menu.

Campus Dining: Food is varied and healthy

Campus Dining: I can't complain enough about the dining at Rollins. If you live on campus, its obligatory to have the outrageously overpriced meal plan. The food is horrible quality and I wish I didn't have to eat there. I could easily save 3,000 dollars a year by not eating there.

Campus Dining: Rollins has a wonderful staff of cooks. Surprisingly enough, the campus center has a lot to offer. Especially for me, being vegetarian. There are many stations with sushi, sandwiches, pasta, etc. The meal plan is a little pricey, but you use it well when you dine on campus.

Campus Dining: The food on campus is great, and many options! I also love the debit card system, which allows you to get whatever you want whenever, rather than the particular number of meals per week. One complaint would be the lack of variety on the weekends, but since the beginning of this year, great changes have been made and the weekends have greatly improved!

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.
