The Princeton Review (sitting firmly atop its high horse) has just announce the American college that has the worst campus food.
Among the 122,000 surveys about campus life, academics and the social scene distributed by the college admissions consulting company for their 2013 rankings, students said the cafeteria was awful.
We aren't joking. They have students "who've found everything from bugs to thumbtacks in their food."
The school disagrees, hilariously, and says the ranking isn't reflective of the campus' menu… but the school will "take whatever action is necessary to address the problems with our food service program."
This isn't coming out of left field for them either — in April 2011, Fordham's student paper The Ram reported that NYC health department inspectors cited health violations (including mice, roaches and poor food storage) at four of the university's dining facilities, giving them shockingly high scores between 30 and 53 points (scores higher than 28 are unsatisfactory).
Here's another student:
"I went to the Grille and got a salad. I found a full grasshopper the size of my thumb in the middle of it."
Not all is bad at the $41,000-a-year university — the Princeton Review says it has an undergraduate program of about 7,600, also that it's ranked #15 for Best College Radio Station and one of the best Northeastern colleges out of the 377 "Best Colleges" Princeton Review compiled this year.
They must be putting all their effort into that, instead of keeping kids fed decent food!
The title of Best Campus Food goes to Bowdoin College, a prestigious small liberal arts school in Brunswick, Maine.
We'd put in a transfer, immediately!
