Cornell lands at #4 spot in Princeton Review's campus food rankings
Cornell University is consistently ranked in the Princeton Review's Top Ten for best campus food among all colleges and universities in the country. That high rating comes from student surveys, and reflects Cornell Dining's commitment to serving high-quality foods that are healthy and creatively prepared with genuine care for a diverse community.
This year, Cornell is listed at #4 in the best campus food category, out of 388 colleges represented in the survey. Above us in the rankings this time are the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Bowdoin College, and Washington University in St. Louis, all of whom appear regularly in the Top Ten, and all are peers we're proud to share the kudos with.
Cornell Dining's Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Michelle Nardi RDN, CDN 2009, believes the organization's commitment to culinary inclusion -- respecting and providing for students' cultural backgrounds, dietary needs, and allergen concerns -- is a big part of our success. “Sharing meals and memories with friends over delicious food is an important part of the Cornell experience, and we want to make sure all our guests can participate,” she says.
Paul Muscente, Cornell Dining's new Director, agrees. "This recognition comes from our students, evaluating and recognizing the hard work that the entire Cornell Dining team does every day. I'm so proud to be part of an organization made up of so many dedicated and talented individuals. I can see the effort they put in, and the challenges we face, and it's gratifying to see that our biggest audience, our students, see it too."
"We've opened six new or completely redesigned eateries in just the last two years," Muscente says, "and we know that appealing to different tastes and needs is so important to our guests. From choosing which eatery to visit on any given day, to which food station in that eatery, to which vegetables and proteins and toppings to incorporate into each dish, we're letting our guests choose their own culinary adventures every single day."
