When Cooking Gets Hard

As a junior, cooking for myself in my apartment has been a struggle I face every day. My meals consist of spicy Ramen, ham sandwiches, and smoothies when I’m feeling healthy now and then.

Since moving out of my residence hall (shoutout to LAR Shelden 4!), I always think of how awesome the university dining halls were during my freshman year. Tacos for lunch at ISR on Mondays, delicious donuts at Busey-Evans, and my favorite, breakfast for dinner at PAR, are just a few of the many options that the dining halls around campus offer students. Feelin’ hungry? Just wait, there’s more.

The best thing about the dining halls is that students are free to choose where they want to eat for every meal! I lived in Lincoln Avenue Residence Hall, but I would always make my way to Busey-Evans during lunch for their specialty restaurant, Oodles, and ISR on Mondays for Mexican-themed food.

The variety of food offered is endless and that is why Illinois’ dining hall system is one of the best. They cater to every student’s needs and always guarantee the best quality. Did you know, a majority of our fruits and vegetables comes from our school’s south farms?! You get only the best in the dining halls!

Eating good meals is essential to a healthy college lifestyle and Illinois’ dining halls provides everything you need.

Let’s eat to that!



Class of 2020
I'm majoring in Psychology, minoring in Spanish, and pursuing a pre-dental track. It seems like I’m all over the place, but that’s what I like about college! I get to choose to study what I’m interested in, and I’m happy to be doing just that at Illinois.
