Top 10 College Cafeterias and Student Food Programs

About this time last year, Web Watch shared this list of the BEST UNIVERSITY CAFETERIAS.

Now that this has turned into an annual listing, we figured you’d want to know what were considered the new hotness in student dining at college and university campuses across the nation.

That’s where we find THIS LIST OF HOW 75 SCHOOLS RANKED with their food programs, all based on the following criteria:

  • Cleanliness and accessibility of the food hall
  • Menu options
  • Healthy food choices
  • Sustainability
  • Culinary education and events
  • The food options available in the surrounding university area. Good quality nearby restaurants = additional positive rating points in this survey
  • The overall dining experience

Not on the criteria list this year? Student feedback.  No stuffing of the ballot box here.
