2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Personalty, I don't like the food and the dining options. The food in Hasbrouck it's not as good as the one from Oscars and the SUB, you have more variety in the SUB and Hasbrouck.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Overall it is okay. There are no options if you are a freshman you have to have the unlimited Hasbrouck plan. The upperclassmen meal plans, like the 5 meal a week worked well for me.

Campus Food: It all depends where you go.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are decent foods at locations around campus but there are difficult and unnecessary expensive costs.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The SUB has so many options that are reasonable for people who do not have meal plans as well as Backstage Cafe where they are always really friendly.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students have a love-hate relationship with Hasbrouck, the NP dining hall. The food tastes great for the first two months of the semester, followed by bearable, then truly mediocre, and then, just when you never want to set foot into Hasbrouck again, it's time for break (Hallelujah!). But absence makes the heart grow fonder, and one finds oneself daydreaming about Haz's crispy fries and greasy egg sandwiches.

Another place to eat is in the Student Union Building (SUB), which is generally where the upperclassmen dine on campus. Sandwiches, quesadillas, burgers, Japanese, and Caribbean cuisine are all available at the SUB; the difference is that students have to pay with dining dollars (purchased at the beginning of each semester). There are also two Jazzman's Café locations, both of which serve coffee, pre-made sandwiches, and soup, and the newly renovated Backstage Café in Parker Theatre, which has great veggie burritos.
