Depending on whom you ask, food at Purdue can be either excellent or inedible. On the whole, students seem to agree that Ford and Earhart are by far the best dining courts. The Union food, though overpriced, is good and easily accessible. If all else fails, there are numerous mini-marts to purchase microwave dinners, and there are grills for hamburgers, french fries, and other staples. You’ll find that upperclassmen living in apartments will often have nostalgic flashbacks to their residence hall days, and use their underclassmen friends to get into the Dining Courts.
Purdue’s award-winning dining courts serve the best food possible while still keeping nutrition in mind. They are well organized, hygienic, and create a great atmosphere for students to gather. Some students are strictly against preserved foods like tinned pineapples and do not speak well of the dining courts. At times, especially near major holidays such as Easter and Thanksgiving, dining court menus deteriorate and end up disastrous. Overall though, the dining courts do a great job in providing Purdue students with maximum amount of food to choose from.
