3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: here's not many options for food at night time (7:30-late). Its either the dining hall Hasbrouck or the take-out place Oscars. It gets really crowded at Hasbrouck and they run out of utensils, plates, and cups all the time.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food is pretty good, nothing special.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Not very healthy or testeful

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The Hasbrouck dining hall can be very hit or miss. Meal plans outside the Carte Blanche (Unlimited meal plan) can be difficult to budget, especially for those who do not have money to spend outside of meal plans. As for the food on campus, the food is alright, but in many cases, overpriced for what is being purchased. Students are currently working to lower prices and/or improve food quality on the campus.

Students have a love-hate relationship with Hasbrouck, the NP dining hall. The food tastes great for the first two months of the semester, followed by bearable, then truly mediocre, and then, just when you never want to set foot into Hasbrouck again, it's time for break (Hallelujah!). But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and one finds oneself daydreaming about Haz's crispy fries and greasy egg sandwiches.

Another place to eat is in the Student Union Building (SUB), which is generally where the upperclassmen dine on campus. Sandwiches, quesadillas, burgers, Japanese, and Caribbean cuisine are all available at the SUB; the difference is that students have to pay with dining dollars (purchased at the beginning of each semester). There are also two Jazzman's Café locations, both of which serve coffee, pre-made sandwiches, and soup, and the newly renovated Backstage Café in Parker Theatre, which has great veggie burritos.
