Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The dining at Bentley is not that great. There's one main dining hall called Seasons and most students are not happy with the quality of food. There are other eating places but they use discretionary which is a preset amount of dollars and most students end up running out if they don't plan well. The eating places that do use discretionary are a lot better than seasons though. LaCava is a popular dining area especially during lunch. Einsteins is very busy in the mornings and during finals week since it's attached to the library. There's Curritos and a grilled cheese place on Lower where the gym is.

    seasons is good, but you have to vary your choices otherwise it gets boring multiple locations for discretionary dining, upper campus and lower campus tend to be better than the dining hall.

    Well the dining hall is below average and you have to get creative. There are places for you to spend discretionary money on like a burrito place, Einsteins which is bagels, and a sandwich place too and a sub place. Falcon Market has lots of snacks.

    The food is great at first, then you just want to try something new. Stick to what you like, but it is easy to diet.

    Freshmen are required to have a meal plan because there aren't any kitchens in their dorms...after that, I suggest cooking because the options in the cafe get old quickly. However, there are different dining places to consider on campus.

    Food isn't bad, but it isn't a home cooked meal, thats for sure! Could use a bit more variety. Has the Mongolian Grill included in the meal plan which is close to a Fire and Ice style of eating.

    Many food choices spread around campus. Can always find something you would like to eat.

    Food choices are limited and seats are limited as well with some choices closing earlier than others. Taste is not very good, while the late night openings are somewhat better.

    Yes- is is an important part of life at Bentley. I am an initiated member of Kappa Sigma and it's given me a chance to connect at a very deep level with a relatively small group of guys with whom you develop a bond for life. We have a social almost every week with the sororities and it's a great way to meet girls!
