To create these rankings, they looked at a variety of factors including, of course, how good the food is according to student opinion, but also how much the meal plan costs, the variety of healthy foods and foods for different dietary preferences and how convenient the hours are at dining locations.
The schools with the best campus food vary widely and are scattered across the country. The top school, Virginia Tech, regularly serves up serious gourmet dishes. In second place, Washington University in St. Louis offers students a wide variety of places to get food that are open for long amounts of time.
