The dining facilities at Babson are not too shabby, with the exception of negative student opinions about the Trim Dining Hall. But even with all the incessant complaints about long lines, nutrition, and food variety, everyone admits that the food options here are better than other colleges they have visited. A relevant issue that some students bring up is that all resident students are required to be on the meal plan. With the average meal plan costing more than $2,200 per semester, it is reasonable for some to be upset.
Overall, if a student is not satisfied with the meal plan options, he or she can also eat in the Olin Hall (where Babson Bucks may also be used), off campus, or order for a delivery. The food at Trim isn't really bad—it just gets boring after a while. This phenomenon seems to happen in almost every college, but the wealthy and sometimes much too needy Babson residents love to complain about it. Trim offers options ranging from a vegan bar to a grill bar, with salads and sandwiches in between. There are many other choices at Trim—you can even make your own waffles! Although many students love to complain about the dining arrangements at Trim, many still go there to eat most mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
