Campus Dining: The campus dinning is okay. There is a lot of different options, but the food is a little pricey and the hours aren't the best. For example a simple turkey sandwich can run anywhere from 5 dollars. While a choice of sushi can dish you out 8 dollars. Not including chips or a soda.

Campus Dining: There is a lot of variety of good nutritious food to eat here however it can be a bit pricey for a struggling college student.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Dining hours are VERY limited and options not very diverse. There are a few vegetarian options but the meal plans are very overpriced and don't get you enough for your money. Take advantage of Marletto's all-you-can-eat option and hoard leftover food for after hours, or else you will potentially stay hungry. Meal plans are required for the dorms, so I recommend buying your own snacks and stuff. Apartments get full kitchens and don't require plans, so you can probably save a lot more money buying and cooking your own food at any hour. Upperclassmen only.

Campus Dining: No dining facility on campus

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is very good in my opinion, but the main dining hall closes pretty early. And there isn't than many options. It seems like it at first but after about two months it gets repetitive. One more big on campus dining location would be great. And more hours!!!

A small variety of dining options is available around the Webster campus. Marletto's Marketplace is the major dining option and has the most variety, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with some dessert and snack options. Another "early" option is at the Cyber Café, which is open at 8 a.m. once Emerson Library opens—great for grabbing a cup of coffee to start off a class.

Crossroads opens in time for lunch, when the University Center becomes a bustling ground for hungry students in need of a quick bite before class. The food is exceptional, especially from Crossroads, but be careful of the vendor boxed meals that are sold at the Simply to Go or in the Cyber Café; they can get soggy and look unappealing despite being in the refrigerator for a few hours. Some food from Marletto's can also be a bit greasy, depending on the kind of food set out, like pizza or food containing meat. For a few cents more, drinks can be made with soy or fat-free milk. Marletto's also has options especially made for vegans and vegetarians, including a "watch and eat" area where a chef can create your own wrap. They are all good places to consider when you are short on time and need an adequate meal in between classes.

Did You Know?
The name "Marletto's" is actually an infusion of the two halls that it lies between: Maria and Loretto.
