Eating Out Provides Relief To Mundane Meal Plan
The food in the residence halls
cafeteria was not bad. It definitely
was a change to eat ARA's version
of nutrition, instead of your mother's homemade vegetable soup.
Why would residents rather eat
off campus? The responses ranged
greatly, but most agreed that they
got tired of the same cafeteria format day after day. As far as suggestions went for the best place to
eat in Houston, the results were
mixed. It ranged from Pizza Hut to
Bennigan's. However, everyone
agreed on one basic factor, price.
"Most college students do not
have large sums of money to spend
on lunch or dinner. Therefore, being able to get something that tasted
decent for a reasonable price was
important," said Kristen Franciotti.
Most residents agreed that finding the right place was a matter of
trial and error. After all, not everyone likes McDonald's Big Mac.
Of course, there were the residents who did not have the means to
eat off campus. Their choices were
few, but they still had some. In the
end, they usually chose to go to the
cafeteria. -Jennifer Horton
