    I’m on Campus Now Where Do I Eat?

    When you first arrive on campus the choices of where to eat seem endless so here’s an insight look at the dining halls on campus.

    There are six major dining areas on campus that have recently gone under new management: Campus Connection at H-Quad, The Stony Brook Union, Students Activity Center, Roth Food Court, Kelly Dining Center, and Tabler Cafe.

    First lets start with the Students Activity Center commonly known as the SAC. It’s located in the middle of campus so it’s always crowded with students especially during the day especially from noon to about 5 o’clock. If you have the time to wait they serve made to order burgers, sandwiches, and warps.

    If you don’t feel like waiting half and hour to get something to eat your best bet would be to go Roth, since it’s not as close to classes as the SAC it tends to be less crowded during the day. In Roth there’s a Wendy’s that stays open till midnight, a pizza place, sandwich, the international market, which serves a variety of international food and an organic cafe called Pura Vida.

    Kelly Dining Center is another good place to go during the day to avoid long lines but it is a bit of a walk from the Academic Mall. Kelly Dining stays open till 3 a.m. and is the destination stop for students who are looking for a midnight snack or even a whole meal. With a small market area Kelly Dining is a convenience among students.

    On the first floor of the Stony Brook Union there is the Union Commons, which serves grilled food such as burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken fingers, and French fries. They also have Chinese food, Mexican food and a Halal serving station. There is also a small deli on the first floor of the Union that serves fresh made sandwiches. On the second floor of the Union is Starbucks and the campuses’ Wolfie’s restaurant.

    Tabler Caf’eacute; is the smallest dining area but provides a nice atmosphere for those who are looking to sit down and relax by either reading or chatting with friends. The caf’eacute; provides a Dunkin Donuts that stays open until midnight, microwavable foods and a variety of soups from Au Bon Pain.

    For those who don’t live in H and Mendelsohn Quad Campus Connections @ H-Quad is a bit of a long trek but the long walk is worth it for those who grow tired of eating the same foods at the SAC and Wendy’s and are craving something a little different. Campus Connections also stays open until midnight.

    All dining halls provide vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
