For the second year in a row, UMass was named the number one campus dining program and we’re honestly not even surprised. The Boston Globe wrote, “When Princeton Review eats at University of Massachusetts Amherst dining halls, it comes back for seconds. The college has topped the company’s list of the best campus dining for the second year in a row.”
These kids at UMass better appreciate what they have because while everyone else is eating premade garbage, these students are feasting. Princeton Review reported their food findings and stated, “In Amherst, chefs cook up a super menu Tuesday night that featured baked salmon with guava rice, barbecue beef brisket, parmesan red pepper pesto polenta, and local sautéed kale. There were also stuffed mushrooms with beans, tomato and avocado, and linguine with saffron clam sauce. Dessert? New England maple almond pudding.”
Now that sounds like a dream come true. I never want to hear a student from UMass complain again because they’re all eating like kings over there. The University even went as far as to ask parents to submit family recipes for them to recreate on campus. Sorry, but how is that fair to the rest of us?
UMass locally sources food from farmers in the area. About 30% of the produce is actually sourced locally. Honestly, this is all great for UMass, but everyone else out there has to be a little salty. I think everyone’s down to transfer to UMass after hearing this.
