Dining Hall Top 10

January 23, 2015

Alright, so for some reason everyone is hungrier in the winter. You see people like Evan Landon carrying two glasses of water and a full plate balancing on a bowl full of dessert and you think he’s just the kind of person who hates making two trips. And then you see him go up again and get the same thing. Since we’re on the topic of food I’m going to tell you my favorite top 10 foods/machines in the dining hall and include a few pictures.

1. Congo Bars:



Congo Bars were the first dessert I had when I came to Gould. I first had one on my orientation trip and it was amazing and I thought they were so good that we would only have them on very special occasions. We usually have them at least once a week and it makes my day to see them on the dessert table.

2. Panini press:

The panini machine is a lifesaver for everyone. Your sandwich is made 10 times better after it’s been in the panini machine and if you don’t like the main meal you immediately turn to the panini press.

3. Peanut butter bars:


So these are basically a healthier version of Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. They’re delicious and when the cafeteria staff puts them out, they never last long.

4. Meat under the light (on Sundays)

Whatever kind of meat it is, it makes Sunday nights so much better. While the Sunday night mood may be depressing because the weekend is over, the dinner fixes everything and gives you motivation to work during study hall.

5. The Waffle Machine

People usually skip over the waffle machine because their in too much of a hurry, but I promise you it is worth the wait. Especially on the weekend, the waffle machine is worthwhile and everyone should try it at least once in their Gould career.

6. Toaster/bagels

Bagels don’t take too long to make and they’re the best part of my breakfast. Since I’m talking about the breakfast, I want to thank the dining hall staff for waking up earlier than we do to prepare the food for us, the school can’t function without them!

7. Yogurt and granola

Two of my favorite things: yogurt and nature valley bars that are crushed up and turned into granola. Along with the bagel, yogurt with granola makes my breakfast amazing

8. American Chop Suey and Caesar Salad

These two foods are usually served together and at lunch time. Pasta and salad aren’t usually served together, but I wonder why not because this is the best lunch combination there is.


9. Omelette Bar

During the weekend, there’s no better feeling than waking up in the morning and going to brunch and getting an omelette. Making your own omelette is amazing and shoutout to the chef because he makes four omelettes at once.


There’s different kinds of coffee, hot chocolate, juices, and milk and you can always try something new. One thing that more students should take advantage of is the hot chocolate because it is always there to warm you up on days like Wednesday when it was negative 20 degrees.

Like I said earlier, none of this would be possible if we didn’t have such an amazing dining hall staff. Mr. Scheidegger.

See you next friday!
