There are five locations for students to eat on campus. Bartol Hall is on the Residence Campus, and provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner for resident students. Students living on campus are required to carry a meal plan with at least seven meals a week. Bartol is a college dining hall, and while they try to jazz up the cuisine with ethnic offerings, they still cannot escape this fact. The dining hall is composed of a spotlight station, a salad, fruit, and ice cream bar, cereal dispensers, a sauté section, pasta and pizza, a vegetarian station, and heating-lamp-warmed main courses. The grilled cheese and burgers are tolerable. Students living off campus are known to sneak in the back door to feed themselves after missing Bartol’s free-for-all style. Vegetarians have their pick of pasta, the salad station, the hot item of the day, or a dish from the vegetarian station.
Quadside Café in lower Smith Hall hosts live bands, pool, arcade games, and movie nights. The food matches this lax environment, with a snack bar within a convenience store. The convenience store keeps frozen meals, candy, and soda stocked. Late-night cravings are met with pizza, mozzarella sticks, and fries. At the Main Campus Building, a coffeeshop and miniature cafeteria provide food for students between class. The Fens has a grill station, home-cooking stand, salad bar, and pizza. The Fens is convenient for students stuck at the academic building and is preferred over Bartol. Visiting restaurants are invited weekly to spice things up.
