Campus Food: I love the food here, except Redhawk runs out extremely fast and sometimes the workers steal your money out of your account to feed themselves.

Campus Food: The food in the dining hall has a lot of options, but if there isn't something that i can eat without being sick, panini sandwiches can get old pretty fast. The red hawk cafe has pretty decent food, but the hours could be better later in the week.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Its okay, but it more quantity over quality.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While many colleges offer a variety of dining halls and eateries, La Roche offers only two—Cantellops Dining Hall (a.k.a. the cafeteria) and Redhawk Café. The cafeteria only operates in short increments of time per meal throughout the day, making it difficult for students with many classes to get anything to eat. Most students dislike the cafeteria, not only because of its odd hours but because the majority of people who work there are often unfriendly and short with students. There are also very strict rules on taking food out of the dining hall. If students want to take something with them, they must pay 25 cents for a container, get their food, and leave promptly afterwards. Students who can't make it to the cafeteria go to Redhawk Café, which is open from early morning until early evening. Plus, the food there is decent.

In general, the food is not well received. Many resident students go grocery shopping every week and eat the bulk of their meals in their dorm rooms. Most commuter students don't even bother paying for a meal plan and either just eat at home or pay to eat at off-campus restaurants. The consensus? LRC's food is not worth the more than $1,000 students pay per semester.
