2 College Junior

Campus Food: I do not get the reason why a school should sell junk and not bring in a much more healthier meal plan to encourage students to eat healthy

4 College Junior

Campus Food: It's gotten better since they switched vendors

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: There is a large variety of food in the cafeteria, as well as affordable prices and daily specials to further save students money on food while on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The cafe's here are pretty okay and have many varieties to choose from, its all about what you want to eat.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: I do not eat meat and I like to eat relatively healthy so the options many times do not fit my requests, but the food is not bad. Can be pretty pricey though, but most college dining is this way from what I have experienced.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are two main cafeterias on campus: one located in the Music Building and the other located in Carman Hall. Students can choose from a variety of cuisines in the Music Building cafeteria, including diner fare (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), pizza, Chinese food, soups, sandwiches, coffee, and fresh salads. The Carman Café features a Starbucks and a full salad bar. Both cafeterias accept cash, debit, and credit cards.

However, most students who frequent the cafeterias also prefer to study there, as well, especially because they can access wireless Internet. The cafeterias are perfect for study groups, and many students also choose to bring their laptops and study individually on the sofas in Carman Café. Upperclassmen tend to stay mainly in Carman Café because of the calmer atmosphere conducive for studying, whereas underclassmen (and some high school students from both the High School of American Studies and The Bronx High School of Science) elect to convene at the Music Building cafeteria, making it a more social (and noisy) gathering area. Recently, a lounge area opened under the Music Building café, where students are able to eat, listen to music, and hang out.
