What Do You Want to Eat?

For most college students and DO-IT Scholars, the cafeteria is the place to be—for food and meal times, as well as socialization. It is an escape from the classroom, something everyone is grateful for now and then.

Life at college is full of new experiences, and the food is no exception. During Summer Study, DO-IT Scholars took their meals with everyone else—in the food court for lunch and at the cafeteria for breakfast and dinner.

The dining hall in McMahon offers a variety of choices. For every meal, there are options besides the main dish. Breakfast starts bright and early at 7 a.m. with scrambled eggs, fruit, pancakes, oatmeal, and other breakfast staples.

DO-IT Scholars ate lunch in the Husky Union Building (HUB) Food Court, which has several “restaurants” to choose from. We ate at DUB Street Burgers, which serves hot dogs, chicken strips, chili-cheese fries, and onion rings. DUB Street also serves breakfast sandwiches and burritos every weekday. We also enjoyed Firecracker, a Chinese restaurant, which offers crispy orange chicken, broccoli beef, and popular sides like eggrolls and veggie chow mein.

We didn’t get a chance to eat at Pastaria, which has made-to-order pastas, or Paggliacci, which makes pizza with local ingredients. But as you can see, the campus has a lot to offer. Whether it’s made by the chefs at McMahon or in the restaurants offered by the HUB, there’s always something good to eat.
