3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: We have 2 places to eat upper and lower. Many people i talk to have many more options to eat.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: I am a vegetarian and I always have options and usually don't end up eating the same thing every day which is very nice. That being said, dining hall food is dining hall food, and the downstairs made to order food is not that much better. It's not terrible. Sometimes they have great food and sometimes they really strike out, so as long as you have a fallback you'll be fine!

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The dining halls are nice and there's lots of variety, but sometimes the food doesn't taste good. There are many other options off-campus to get food from and I've never had a bad experience with any of them... but I just wish most of them weren't so far away from the school.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food on campus is absolutely awful in quality, i mean some of the cheapest food one could find is what we are fed. New rules limit choices and it's practically impossible to find something to eat past 8pm if you dont want to eat pizza or waste $7 on wawa. The dinning experience alone makes me want to transfer.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Good but Repetitive – The Food is very good when you first get there however you feel as though you eat the same thing everyday. Aside from a few special days the menu remains relatively the same aside from a few areas of the cafeteria.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

With only two places to eat on campus, there are not a whole lot of options. The food here gets really old really fast. To be fair, dining services tries to change things up a bit by offering something different each day, but in the end, it becomes one giant rotating schedule. Wismer, the main dining hall, is very much ostracized—it always has been and likely always will be. It is more of a social animal than anything else. Students who go to Wismer usually go with a large pack of friends and spend a long time socializing there. The food may not be the best, but you can eat as much of it as you want and stay for a while.

Zack's, on the other hand, provides fresher food. It's technically a snack bar, but it provides much more than that. The meals served there are great for lunch, but usually do not have large enough portions for dinner. Zack's is a bit more expensive than Wismer, but the quality is definitely better. It gets a bit busy during peak lunch hours (noon to 1 p.m.) and during dinner (around 5 p.m.), but otherwise, it's a place to quickly grab food and take it anywhere.

Did You Know?
  • Domino's offers free delivery to campus addresses. In fact, they are so dedicated to delivering pizza to Ursinus students that all a student needs to provide is the room's phone number extension, and the Domino's delivery man knows exactly where to bring the pizza.
  • It's a long-running joke that only freshmen use trays. If an upperclassmen mentions this to you during summer orientation, they aren't kidding—no one uses trays!
