  • Compared to some dorms at other places, Misericordia dorms are really nice. The only problem is space. Misericordia is a small school and they seem to be accepting…

    The Food at Misericordia is pretty good compared to other schools. In the cafeteria their are lots of options for the students. Their is a grill where you can order chicken, burgers, and hot dogs, along with whatever the special is that day. Their is also a deli which offers all differnt kind of sandwiches. The main food line has various different options of hot food. Their is also a bravo station that has a different food item everyday. Along with those options is a full salad bar. Cereal is available all day, as well as breads. Misericordia also has the Cougar Den which uses extra money and has a variey of pre package snacks and drinks for purchase. It also has lots of grilled food options and wraps/sandwiches. I think that the Dens wraps are some of the best. You can also get coffee and Hot chocolate at the Den. The Den also makes their own fresh pizza. The Den is basically a small restaurant on campus. So if you need a break from cafeteria food go to the Den.

    Food is repetitive, not many fresh/healthy options.

    The food is like normal school food. Nothing overly exciting, but college kids need to eat. They always have salad, soup, and a sandwich option. They accommodate for students dealing with allergies. There is always a good selection of cereal and ice cream! There is a dining option which we call The Den. It offers made to order food, but it is not part of the meal plan. You use actual money there.

    Metz dining hall doesn't offer the most delicious or healthiest of options. You just have to adjust and see what you like and go from there. The possibilities are endless!

    The dining hall is open only certain hours, but there is a great variety. Of course there are days when the cafeteria is a flop, but there are other locations around campus that allow for a variety of food at different hours.
