It's easy finding plenty to eat at Cornell, whether your diet is vegan, kosher, halal, or purely pizza and burgers. A flexible dining plan allows students to accommodate their needs, while 26 locations across campus make finding a meal between classes a simple task. And in addition to leisurely, unlimited dining, you can pick up a prepackaged sandwich or salad for lunch on the go.

Because Cornellians keep long hours, so do the places they eat -- some open as early as 7 a.m. and others serve till 1 a.m.

In addition to the standard fare, Cornell's Cross Country Gourmet brings guest chefs from across the nation to prepare their specialties in campus dining halls. The event has included talent from Disney World's Flying Fish Café; Prejean, a New Orleans eatery; and Oklahoma City's Mantel Wine Bar & Bistro.

"Cornell Dining is perennially ranked one of the top dining programs at an undergraduate university. The variety and quality of the food never ceases to amaze me."
