    i'm from china, so i'm still trying to be used to food here. but you can always cook your food. i will live in an apartment next semester, where each room has a kitchen which is very convenient.

    There are several dining options. Lane is the main dining hall and it has a salad bar (so good!), a deli/sandwich station, a grill, a pizza station, and a hot line where they serve home cooked meal type foods (not always the best). There's also Gillie's which offers healthier options. Chester's is like Starbucks and serves great coffee. The chocolate croissants are to die for. Finally, there's the Bistro which is located in the library. They serve fancier food (like pre-made sandwiches, gourmet salads, and soup) but it can be a bit pricey. Overall, there is something for everybody and it just takes a bit exploring to determine what you like/don't like.

    So, food here is hit or miss. They serve a lot of the same things and while it's not gourmet it usually isn't terrible. Chester's and Bistro 225 are both pretty good and I love late night as well. Watch out for meal times though, they are very specific and if you miss them then that's it, time to call take out.

    Not much variety besides Lane and the Bistro which the Bistro is highly expensive, except if you get the PB&J or something small like that. The hot food line, consisting of more of the homecooked meals is a luck of the draw where it can either be really good or really gross, in my opinion more gross than good. I found it easy for me to go to the pizza or the hamburger area... Don't forget to go to late night or go downstairs though because there's usually some good food down there.

    The food at Gordon is mediocre at best. There are 2 dining halls, a bistro, and a cafe on campus, and I found that eating areas were generally not very clean. The food gets repetitive pretty fast. Health is definitely not a top priority when it comes to the food choices, and several people with food sensitivities (including myself) had to resort to cooking all their own food and forgoing all or part of the meal plan. Dining locations on campus are open during very limited hours on Saturdays and Sundays, and they tend to run out of food on the weekends as well, so make sure you have food on hand to make your own meals on weekends. The food at Gordon is also RIDICULOUSLY expensive.

    The food is not bad but it sure is not fine dining. There are three places to eat on campus. The first is the 255 Bistro, which has pre-made sandwiches, pre-made salads, yogurt, and other snacks, along with various lattes and other drinks. Then there is Lane, which is the main cafeteria, which has sandwiches, a salad bar, soups, pizza, burgers, and a hot dish that varies with each meal of the day but every week it repeats and then changes completely every few weeks. Lastly there is Gilles, which is open at odd hours, late at night and between meals. Gilles late night is where all the unhealthy food everyone loves is, it has nachos, mozzarella sticks, burgers, waffle fries, and ice cream. They have specials for dinner and lunch sometimes which varies, but my favorite is sushi on Thursdays.

    the food is pretty good. If your looking for a snack or coffee between classes the bistro is the place to go. My favorite though is getting a black leprachaun late at night when its time to hit the books in cheaters.
