2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Eat the hawks nest and invest in a microwave

2 College Senior

Campus Dining: I am not a fan of the dining services provided. I avoid eating in the dining halls unless I absolutely have to or want a cup of coffee.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The campus dining sucks. There are no options and never any healthy options unless you eat a salad for every meal.

Campus Dining: The food really is fine. No matter the day, I'll be able to find something I enjoy and leave content. You get sort of used to the food, but that's the case with anywhere. Dessert is really good, and you can get ice cream whenever you want

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Not a lot of variety and sometimes mediocre in quality

Wagner is a small community, so there is only one dining hall. It is open throughout the week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and on the weekends, brunch and dinner are offered. It's buffet-style with a pizza bar, salad bar, and deli, as well as a rotating menu, which includes a wide variety of items. There is usually chicken or pasta available, and you can always make your own stir-fry. The dining hall recently added more vegetarian options and a separate, kosher refrigerator. At dinner, there are action stations where you can get a specific menu item made to order, such as gyros or wings.

Students can also dine in the Hawk's Nest, which includes a grill, Italian kitchen, and a coffee bar with a bakery. The grill has the usual choices, like hamburgers, but there are also Philly cheesesteaks, turkey burgers, and vegetarian options. The Italian kitchen features items like sausage rolls, calzones, and baked ziti. The coffee bar brews Starbucks coffee and makes a variety of hot and cold drinks, and the bakery has muffins and brownies, as well as other snacks. Finally, there is also an on-campus grocery store, the Wag, which has a range of cereals and snacks, such as granola bars, Pop-Tarts, cookies, and chips. For about $3, you can buy a small box of cereal and add whatever toppings may be available, such as M&Ms, banana slices, or raisins. The best coffee on campus can also be found here. In terms of value, the dining hall is probably best. Since it's all-you-can-eat, you can usually find something here, even if the options may seem less than satisfactory. The Wag runs a close second because you can find the cheapest snacks on campus here.
