They don't bother me that muchI can handle it if the crowds are organized and lines aren't too longI’d rather just grab pre-prepared food than wait in line for a custom salad/panini/pizza/omelette/etc.They’re fine and I’m okay with a reduction of personal space while waiting in lineI’m not a huge fan of crowds/lines, but if I’m able to leave after I get my food and get away from the crowd then I’m good
Yes, HalalYes, KosherYes, Vegan/VegetarianNo, but I’d like to have some healthier options like salad and fruitNo, and I'm not in the mood for vegetables
Which Barnard/Columbia Dining Hall Are You?
The main dining hall on Barnard's campus, Hewitt is a staple. You'll get to know Hewitt VERY well during NSOP, so get ready! Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Hewitt also features a full kosher kitchen and little blondies that are the most addicting desserts ever.
Located on the second floor of the Diana Center at Barnard, Diana Center Cafe is known for its smoothies and white pizza. You can use a meal swipe for breakfast and dinner at Diana and points for lunch. Diana Center Cafe is also open for late night for when you just need some curly fries at 10:00 PM.
Do you enjoy dark wood panelling and low lighting? John Jay is for you! Known for its vegetarian sushi station and endless options, John Jay is a great option for you and your friends all want to eat together but all want different things. Beware, though! John Jay can get seriously crowded during peak hours.
Do you know that commercial where Oprah's like "I love bread"? If Oprah ate a CU dining hall, it'd be Ferris. Known for its pasta station and dessert bar, Ferris is where you go when you need some carbs. You can also get fruits and a salad, I guess, if you're into that. Ferris uses all disposable cups, plates, and utensils, which makes it great for taking someplace else, but not so much for the planet.
JJ's Place is like that cool aunt who lets you do whatever you want. Full of junk food and a minuscule salad bar, JJ's is there for your 2 AM cravings. You can't take anything out of JJ's place except coffee cups, so CU students have been known to stuff anything and everything into those cups, having a coffee cup full of JJ's gummy bears isn't an uncommon sight.
