2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: They can only be described as eating natural laxitives. Takes about a few weeks for your body to adjust. Till then you'll have some terrible diarrhea. Very overpriced and every year they raise the price because the school is "losing money" even though they sell a bottle of naked juice for 4 bucks and 95% of girls have over 100 meals unspent which they pay for and go to waste.

Costs 5 bucks for a 6 inch sammie/pb and j with a few slices of ham, chips, and a drink. Rip off. But the school is "losing money"

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: For the size of UMW, it has a decent amount of choices.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: It has its good and bad days. However, after a while, you'll get tired of having the same things over and over. Go to Seaco for the holiday meals though; they're great.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Its not terrible but about hallway through the semester all you want is off campus food and something besides chicken and fries.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Complete rip off. They'll charge you 5 bucks for a 6 inch sandwich with 3 slices of ham or crumbled dry chicken bits. WoW wingery food is often uncooked.

Overall, food here is not good. It's only good when the school is expecting lots of visitors.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Sandy Nicole
Grad Year
View all previous student authors

While the University is improving the overall diversity at the University, students find that there seems to be little improvement in the diversity of the food options at Mary Washington. The food is decent, but the options are limited, and the food tends to be very repetitive. In the defense of Mary Washington, it is a small school; thus, the administration seems to feel that only three dining halls are adequate. Overall, though, the University does satisfy the categories of the food pyramid. There are healthy options, greasy options, snack options, entrée options, and of course, vegan options.

Although The Underground is the smaller of the school's dining hall counterparts, it tends to be the most popular one throughout the day. The food at The Underground is healthier and more filling than the other halls, with its vegan options, sandwiches, soups, dips, and even frozen yogurt. The Underground and The Eagle's Nest both tend to be more popular than Seacobeck, which is known to be a repetitive buffet-style dining hall. Halfway through the semester, students tend to tire of the food and make frequent visits to the Giant across the street to stash better quality food in their dorm rooms.
