Student Opinion on Dining Halls at BSU

As most students have settled into the dining hall food after being home for break or transferring to BSU, The Comment interviewed students at Flynn and East Campus Commons dining hall to see what students think of BSU’s food. 

East Campus Commons, the largest dining hall on campus, is open typically from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm on most weekdays. Students reported mostly positive feedback about ECC’s breakfast food but had little to no opinions on lunch and dinner foods. “I really like the blueberry bagels. I have ECC food for breakfast nearly every morning and it’s usually really good.” (Lily Picchioni, ‘27).  Another student reported her thoughts on some of the self-made breakfast food. “I love the waffles at ECC but they need to include better directions on how to use it!” (Yaslee Dube ‘26). 

Students had mixed reviews in general on the food in Flynn dining. Flynn dining is typically open for lunch and dinner everyday besides Friday and Saturday. Only dinner is served on Sunday nights. “I love the sammie [sandwich] station in Tilly’s [Flynn] because it’s like a subway on campus!” said Dube. “I order almost any type of sandwich I want. They also just added a place to make your own PB&J or peanut butter fluffs.” However, another student had a differing opinion. “The pizza at Flynn kinda sucks. On the other hand, the pasta is different every time but I still love it”, said Danielle O’Brien (‘27). 

Although there were mixed feelings on the two meal swipe locations, it seems that it depends on what types of meals you like. According to the BSU students interviewed, if you prefer breakfast, then ECC is your place, but Flynn tends to have more of a variety for dinner.
