Campus Food

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It used to be really good when Sweet Briar ran their own dining services. Since Aramark has been put in charge the food sucks.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Eating in the dining hall can have it's perks occasionally, with it's freshly made sandwiches for lunch, for example. But as a personal preference I tend to got to the Bistro, which is located just a short walk away from the dorms and is available as a dining option even after the dining hall has closed (for my fellow martyrs with the evening/night classes and jobs). The Bistro serves burgers as a staple, but also have salads, sandwiches, pizza, soups, and milkshakes as other options, just to name a few. You can pay for your meals there with your own money, SweetCash, your meal plan (in which case, you would get a smaller meal and have to pay for the rest some other way), or with Dining Dollars. Dining Dollars are provided by the school and are used adjacent to your meal plan. For example, you can get a smaller sized meal plan with more Dining Dollars if you know you aren't going to be eating in the dining hall as much as you are the Bistro or Daisy's Cafe. Or, you could get a larger meal plan, with less Dining Dollars, if the opposite is true.

Campus Food: Its decent food, the omelet station is really good and fresh. The sandwich station has a lot of option and the pesto mayo is really good.

Campus Food: Everything comes from Sysco, they have improved a bit recently (probably due to all the complaints) but there is really no variety.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: This is one of the topics that is talked about at school. We have two places to eat on campus: Protho and The Bistro. Both can be used on meal plan, but you can only go to Bistro three times on your meal plan. The Bistro is just like a normal place to eat. You can get bugers, pizza, chicken, anything really. Prothro is our dining hall and it just is not the greatest. They try to keep the food different and there is always the option to make a sandwich, but if you want good, hot food then you're not always going to be satisfied. They really do try, but it doesn't always work out the best.
