Dining on campus is limited, but students do the best with what they've got. There is one dining hall, which is clean, modern, and pretty. And the catering company that runs it, AVI, makes a sincere effort to satisfy the needs of the students. The dining hall always has a sandwich bar, salad bar, pizza, pasta, soup, and grill (the grill serves burgers and fries). In addition, three additional stations offer rotating dishes. The three stations are the home-cooked foods (like turkey or lasagna), international food (a lot of exotic things), and the fresh bar (a lot of vegetarian dishes). However, the dining hall does a terrible job of catering to vegetarian or vegan diets. Many vegans and vegetarians end up joining Hiram's Stone Soup Cooperative, which consists of a couple dozen students who work "shifts" of cooking vegetarian dishes and cleaning the kitchens. These are the only students who have 24-hour access to a dining facility on campus. The cooperative is entirely student-run and caters to just about any dietary need.
The last on-campus dining facility is the Bistro, which serves hot and cold food as well as snacks and coffee until 10 p.m. It is located in the student center ("the KC") and is generally buzzing. Its food and prices get mixed reviews, but often it's more appreciated than the dining hall, particularly because it's open later than the dining hall. Students are also able to go off campus to eat or can order delivery from a pizza place, but these options can be costly, and many students don't have a car. That's why one of the biggest complaints about campus dining is that there is nothing to eat at night. Perhaps, that's a reason why so many students stock up on ramen.
