As a transfer student from a school where the food was consistently mediocre with questionable nutritional merit, UMass dining has been a phenomenal experience for me. This school, with some of the best college food around, is truly heaven for a food-obsessed health nut like myself. In UMass DCs, the options are always diverse and it is never difficult to make healthy choices. There are always plenty of vegetables and healthy proteins available, not to mention the daily SPE-certified meals that guarantee a balanced meal without having to think too carefully about food choices.
UMass DCs not only always take suggestions from students, but truly make an effort to accommodate our requests. Finally my favorite characteristic of UMass DCs is the specials. Without leaving campus I get the opportunity to try new cuisines or sample old favorites. In my first year here I’ve had Canadian food, Indian food, some fabulous dishes involving pistachios and so much more. Not only do I love the opportunity to sample these foods but sometimes they inspire me to explore new recipes at home. I am incredibly grateful to have transferred to a place where the DC isn’t just somewhere to eat, but a place I look forward to visiting every day.
