5 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Our only dining hall Servo is amazing, it has so many food choices for even the most demanding hungry students. The only problem about Servo is that it's very crowded and sometimes there are even no seats for some students during the lunch rush time and dinner rush time, which makes lots of students wait standing before one table gets empty. Apart from that, I would give 100 out of 100 for Gettysburg food options and places to eat. The only disadvantage is that fruits and sushi are ridiculously expensive, which I never eat.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: As a First-Year student at Gettysburg, I can't say that I've been to all of the places to eat on campus, because we can't use our meals anywhere but Servo. However, Servo has great food, and even on the days that you don't want to eat anything that they have, they're still good options. I think there's almost a sense of entitlement that comes out of the students about that, because most of them are wealthy. Bullet also is open later and has good prices for a meal when you're in a pinch, (plus you get dining dollars to use at places like it).

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: At the beginning of the year, the food seemed great. But as the weeks and months progressed, I was not such a fan. There is always something to eat, but I don't always want to eat it. It is very nice to have a sandwich bar available all the time just in case the different entre options are gross.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's pretty good. Lately they have been trying to provide healthier options at the expense of some of the tastier food options. Also, you can only use a meal every three hours, so if you have extra meals you can't spend them all on the last day.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are a lot of different options and it's usually really good compared to other schools I've been to.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

For the first year of your career at Gettysburg, you will eat at Servo. Almost always. The consensus at G'burg agrees on two things: 1) the food here is better than at the majority of other colleges, and 2) chances are, your tastebuds will not be disappointed. The importance of food quality at a college is something that's easy to overlook when deciding where to go, but something that really should be a crucial element of a student's selection process. At a small school with few dining options, not liking the food can really (and quite literally) sour the entire college experience.

At Gettysburg, food is not a problem. The quality, and to an extent the selection, tends to be quite good, with occasional peaks of delicious. Of course, while Servo is the main dining establishment, two other options exist. Ike's, despite the sometimes inconvenient hours, provides the key option of Mexican dining, while the Bullet Hole represents Gettysburg's fast food alternative. The subs are made to order, and there are almost always two soups of the day and an entrée if you prefer something hot. The Bullet Hole is very popular among students on the go, and it allows you to either use meals from your card or spend dollars that are added as part of your meal plan.
