College Eating

Welcome to the College Eating Guide!

One of the most important and often overlooked aspects of the college experience is that of food and drink. The ways in which we fuel our studies can play a part in the success or failure of those studies, and the choices that we make at meal times and in between have an effect that goes well beyond ourselves.

This guide spotlights a number of resources both on and off campus that can help you make more informed dining choices, and think more deeply about your relationship to food.
