I don’t like the food on campus. Forget that it is a hassle to go to the cafe or the bison in peak hours, and forget that until recently there was no good food after 8 pm. you can even forget about some of the creepy servers (Do you want a pickle with that?) All of these things for be forgivable if I had a decent variety of food to choose from.
Most colleges I visit have many options when it comes to food. McDonalds, chick-filet, taco bell, are all easily assessable on the campus and you can use the money you would spend on food at the cafe or bison at these places. Instead I only have 4 places on campus to spend my declining dollars. After a few months the bison becomes stale and boring. The cafe has many stations, but are essentially the same thing week in and week out. I have only been to the terrace room when I have been on campus for track and the other places aren’t open, but from what i hear you can only get a good salad there. I included 7th street cafe as a place to eat but other than coffee, milkshakes, and snacks it could not sustain an actual meal.
I applaud the campus opening up the use of our ID’s for use outside of the campus, but we should be able to use declining dollars and not campus dollars at these other places. Maybe its the four years that I have spent here, but the food situation at Bucknell is terribly consistent and i would like variety.
