Campus Food: Food is kind of repetitive. Pretty much all the kitchens are very wasteful. We can't use meal plans anywhere off campus.

Campus Food: It's honestly really good for dining hall food, and there are many options for each meal. Snack bar is a godsend, and you can get anything from breakfast food to salads to sandwiches to pizza to nachos to fried food extraordinaire. However, they do tend to repeat meals, so sometimes it gets a bit boring.

Campus Food: Dining services works extremely hard to provide students will quality meal options. There's pretty good variety and most dining halls are all you can eat so that's a plus.

Campus Food: Mission is the best. Avoid Whitman's.

Campus Food: There are a limited number of places to eat on campus but what do you expect for a school with 2,000 kids? Variety isn't always amazing but quality is usually very high. Lots of food is labeled as locally grown/organic and has a clear list of allergens that it contains. Vegetarians/vegans are pretty well accommodated. Dining halls put a lot of effort into having theme nights in order to spice things up from time to time. Dining staff are some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. One big drawback is that meal plans can only be used at dining halls and are not available for local would-be-convenient places.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

While they may not make the best veggie pizza on earth, the campus dining facilities do an adequate job of allowing vegetarians and other individuals with diverse eating habits to stay satisfied. And, most of the time, the food actually tastes good and is fresh.

Williams' on-campus dining has also been very successful in creating a pleasant atmosphere for enjoying the food, and they might surprise you with new recipes and touches.
