1 College Freshman

Campus Food: It basically tastes like jail food and is not worth the money we are paying. Everything is processed and unhealthy.

Campus Food: Leafs and Grains is a good place to eat. You don't have to pay or swipe to get in so you can just sit and enjoy some tv. You can take things to go.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is only one company that caters food to the Florham campus of Fairleigh Dickinson: Gourmet Dining. This company is in charge of the school dining hall, as well as the staff of the three other dining areas: the Grill, Snax, and Nathan’s. It is always the same food that is served repeatedly, so most students choose to cook their own food at the “Wok it Up” station. Every day in the dining hall, students can choose from pizza, sushi, hamburgers, a salad bar, and one other main dish that rotates throughout the week. Many students look forward to Taco Tuesdays. There is only one vegan and one vegetarian option available per day in the dining hall, not including the salad bar.

To get into the dining hall, students must either pay $8.50, or they must use one of their few swipes. With the meal plan A, students get unlimited swipes in addition to $100 in flex money. Swipes do not work anywhere else on campus besides the dining hall. Students are given what is known as flex dollars, or money that can only be spent at the dining hall or at one of the other eateries. The amount you receive is either $100 or $200, depending on the plan.
