Going To College: It's All Up To The Food
I laughed a bit when I read a recent article in the NY Times about teens making the quality of the college food a critical part of their admissions choice. At UCLA, I was glad to get a sandwich or salad. A good snack was composed of Pops cereal and I thought I was doing something healthy if I drank skim milk in my Cheerios.
Now, students can boast of a dorm-made steak dinner, white spinach lasagna, eggplant parmesan, and the authentic Wolfgang smell wafting through the cafeteria. As a foodie, I understand the importance of a satisfied palate, but if I have to choose between Yale's prestige and Bowdoin culinary options, I'm going with the prestige.
Is it just me?
