it's actually pretty good! most of it is fresh, and if you're not a fan, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods are less than 2 miles away from campus. You could easily walk to either.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

Stanford’s on-campus dining should be given credit for what it manages to do right. In the case of the dormitory cafeterias, food is generally high quality. The fruits and vegetables are appropriately Californian and excellent. Lunches are usually interesting, with both healthy and unhealthy options. Dinners tend to be less exciting, but still hearty and nutritious. Anyone can get tired of the dining hall after several months of it, but there are ways to keep it interesting. Try some different sandwiches at lunch, and avoid the dining halls on Saturday nights when they serve the tired Italian meatloaf—go out with some friends instead.
The biggest problem that students have with Stanford Dining is that participation is mandatory. If you live in a dorm, you have to get the meal plan. If you have a medical or religious reason for not being able to participate, you must go to great lengths to prove it, then you must pay around $350 per quarter to opt out of the meal plan. If you have a strange schedule and miss a lot of meals, Stanford Dining will try to help you, but they still make you participate. If you choose to get the smallest meal plan available, you will only save five to eight percent off the price of the largest meal plan. Most students snicker whenever the colorful posters around campus remind them of Stanford Dining’s slogan: “It’s all about you.”
