    There are a lot of food options here. There is White Hall, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Sunday-Saturday. The food is typical college food, a lot of chicken, rice, and vegetables. But there is always the salad bar, sandwich station, and cereal available. There is an expo each night when food will be prepared in front of you, which is delicious. (Stir fry, omelets, pasta, sandwiches) There is also Charlie's, which is a burger and fry type place that is included in the meal plan. It is connected to the student center. At University Hall there is Porter Cafe, a sandwich shop. At Brattle there is Winthrop Commons, a much smaller dining hall for those who live on Brattle. It is nicer than White, but has less options and is not open Friday night-Sunday. If you live on Brattle you will have to get your own food on the weekends, or go to White.

    I actually really like the dining halls and food on campus, they're not that bad. Also, the dining workers are pretty nice and love input on the food.

    Lesley is not particularly known for it's gourmet food, however, the food is edible and there is a very wide variety especially for any vegans and vegetarians.

    I am never impressed with the food and dining at any school I go to. Lesley is no different. I am actually a vegetarian and I always have options but like any college food I get sick of the options Iâ??m offered. By the end of the year I found myself eating cereal for dinnerâ?¦that being said, if I wasnâ??t a vegetarian I would have a lot more options and in general people are sick of the food but they are still finding things they like. There is no student grocery store so you canâ??t stock up your fridge with groceries every week but there is a grill so you can get chips and different types of drinks (including coconut milk) and fill your fridge with that. The only good I see that comes from this is that it may prevent the freshman-15!
