Buchman Pavilion Kiosk and Buchman Bistro have very high-quality food and also have a large selection of on-the-go meals. The price can be high, since everything is usually made from fresh ingredients, but the price is worth it because of the portion size. Students can use their Bonus Bucks in order to pay for food at the Buchman facilities. Buchman is known for having healthier options than the other dining hall on campus. The availability can vary in the sense that the Buchman Kiosk is open later than the Bistro section, which closes quite early.
McKinstry is the main dining hall for residents, but commuters can also get a meal plan to eat there, as well. The quality of food is average, but they do offer a wide variety of options. The price of an average meal plan can cost anywhere between $1,500 and $2,500, depending on the student's year. The value of food is good because students pay in advance for their meals, so they can eat as much as they like. The dining hall does not offer kosher or organic foods, but it does try to make the meals healthy with vegetarian/vegan dishes and different ethnic foods for international students. In all honesty, despite the many options, varieties, and portion sizes, most students do not like the food offered at Sage and think it is disgusting.
