3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is better than at some colleges I visited, but it's still not fabulous. It's definitely generic to fit everyone's dietary needs. The soft-serve machine almost never works. Weekend food is horrendous, and I usually can never really eat much then because the options are very limited and not appetizing at all. Breakfast and lunch are typically good, and dinner is very hit or miss.

Campus Food: Our food isn't terrible, but they need to add more flavor to it! I think Agnes caters too much to vegetarian and vegan options, as well as gluten-free. I understand that people don't eat certain foods, but it's annoying when you think something will taste good, but instead, it's flavorless. Vegetable options need to be expanded and more menu items need to be added! WHOEVER COOKS THE GRITS ON SATURDAY MORNINGS SHOULD BE THE ONLY PERSON ALLOWED TO COOK THEM DURING THE WEEK.

Campus Food: Our Dining Hall could have more healthy choices.

Campus Food: There is only one dining hall at Agnes, unfortunately. There is not a late night option aside from Mollie's, which is the restaurant on campus in the student center. It is open until midnight on weekdays, and 9pm on weekends, which leaves a lot of students in the cold on a late night on the weekend, with nothing on campus open.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Overall, Agnes Scott's dining facilities are nice. The pricing for meals isn't the best for the quality of food you receive, though. In Letitia Pate Evans Dining Hall (Evans), the pricing ranges from $5.50 to $9. Although these meals are covered by the meal plans, they are still expensive. Dinners are highly priced, and you could easily go into Decatur and eat dinner for less or just as much as Evans costs you; however, you should keep in mind that Evans is an all-you-can-eat place, so the money you spend on dinner is used to cover what you eat and waste. Aside from pricing, Evans is a wonderful place at which to eat. It's always clean, the people are always welcoming, and the food isn't horrendous, either. In Evans, there are food traditions for a couple days of the week. Wednesday is always "Fried Chicken Wednesday," where traditional Southern food is served in the "Comfort Zone" serving area; fish is always served on Friday (in the Comfort Zone area) along with tacos, which are served in the international food section. Although things in Evans often do get repetitive, there's always something there for someone to enjoy.

The pricing in Mollie's Bakery Café (Mollie's) is more reasonable than what you pay for in Evans. Few people are impressed by the Mollie's staff because they are often rude and intimidating at night. They also don't often have a sense of urgency. Both Evans and Mollie's have vegetarian/kosher/vegan options, but there isn't much variety. Dining availability is limited because there is only one dining hall and one restaurant on campus, which contributes to people being bored with the food. There are, however, many restaurants within walking distance that offer student discounts on food.
