When I last posted I told you guys I would talk about dorm foods next, so here we go.
Today I just want to talk about the food provided by the dorms, and in a later post I'll talk about some of the best dorm microwavable and snack foods.
Here at WVU we have cafeterias at several but not all of the dorms. With a meal plan you can go to any of the cafeterias and eat an all you can eat buffet. The everyday there is salad bar, several cereals, a sandwich station, and pizza. In addition to those there are entrées such as turkey, beef roast, hamburgers, chicken patties, mashed potatoes, and a variety of other foods. You might think all this sounds great but sadly, it's not. The food is often of very cheap quality so the beef is rubbery, the pizza is awful, and you can really tell they use inexpensive ingredients. Because of this I often avoid the cafeteria and go to the other option we have, the Grab N Go.
The Grab N Go has a different hot sandwich every day, a variety of chips, and many side options. The sandwiches are usually pretty good (except for Tuesday's Caprese sub) and the sides aren't bad either. I usually get the hot sub of the day, Cheetos, and cheese cubes or a Smucker's Uncrustable.
From what I've heard, other colleges and universities food snit much better. Universities like to get a lot of money out of students meal plans so they stick to cheap foods. I recommend not getting a meal plan if possible and just going grocery shopping every week or two. Sometime in the future Ill write about my favorite foods are for keeping in the dorm and snacking on. Thanks for reading!
