Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Danielle Todd
Newark, Del.
View all previous student authors

When you eat off campus, you're guaranteed to find something that can satisfy you. Main Street offers many different kinds of food, and driving a little ways off campus can satisfy all the rest of your food needs. Should you be unable to find a pre-made meal to fill all your desires, there is always the grocery store. Pathmark, in particular, puts effort into catering to some of the needs of foreign and health conscious students. There is a wide variety of different foods there to satisfy everyone.

While the options are endless, the quality may not always be the best. There is certainly not anything near gourmet food available unless you can cook it yourself. Seafood is a little hard to find and is rarely prepared well when found. Students also find it hard to eat healthfully from their off-campus dining choices without being overly repetitive unless they become a savvy chef. Newark has its downfalls in quality, but it definitely makes up for it with its quantity.
