Off-Campus Dining: I really enjoy eating off campus and although it isn't worth screaming about, its usually easy and tastes pretty good.

Off-Campus Dining: Since the campus is in New York City, it is surrounded by a multitude of dining options. They range from hole-in-the-wall restaurants to world-wide known places like Chiptole. It offers students versatility. The only problem is that a lot of these places are a little too pricey for a college student's budget to be eating at on a regular basis. It is nice in increments.

Off-Campus Dining: Whole Foods is near the dorms, but it's expensive. There are a lot of Duane Reades on the commute to school. There is a Trader Joe's on the Upper West Side and in Union Square, but it's not walking distance.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If you are a foodie, then New York is the place for you. From Italian to Chinese, the options never end! And, by having so many options, you can find great food within a reasonable price range.  

Some students eat off campus all of the time—that may be the way they spend their Friday evening. Other students go out to eat only for special occasions or primarily for Sunday brunch! No matter what neighborhood you are in—be it Midtown or Union Square—you will always find exactly what you are in the mood for. But please tip your waiter well. It costs a lot of money to live in New York, and taking people's orders all day barely pays the bills.
