Campus Food

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I actually enjoy eating at Baldwin and the Eat Shop, everything at Baldwin is hand made and rarely processed. Campus is kind of far away from any other places to eat if you don't have a car though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If you have a well-rounded diet then you will rarely have a problem. Sometimes though, food is not great and you end up ordering pizza. But if there are very few things that you really like, then you are in for a rough time.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not five star dining, but its not nearly as bad as students claim it is.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Some days are better than others, but overall good food.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: We have unlimited meal passes and the cafeteria is buffet style. The food is not always the greatest quality and although the company tries to stay healthy, flavor often is lacking. For late night options, we have one eatery open until midnight and they serve a large variety of food that has always been great quality.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students love to complain about Baldwin Hall, but after a while it just becomes comfortable, if not comforting. Everyone who works there is really friendly. Although the food can get redundant, it's nice to have an unlimited meal plan. In 2013, renovations were started, designed to give students a restaurant-quality dining experience.

Other than Baldwin Hall, there is only the Eat Shop. Open until midnight, the Eat Shop specializes in short-order food such as hamburgers, french fries, grilled cheese, and other late-night snacks. Each semester, every student is given $25 to use at the Eat Shop. Some say the money goes too fast, but it's good while it lasts.

Did You Know?
Because of students' unlimited meal plan, Baldwin staff prohibits students from taking any food outside of the hall. So, if you're looking for a snack for later, be sure to act natural when stuffing those tiny boxes of cereal into your backpack.
