Dining Services Makes the Grade Again

Dining Services Makes the Grade Again

Friday, March 14, 2014

Dining Services can add another notch in its accolades belt after receiving an A rating from Niche, an online reviewer of colleges and K-12 schools in the United States. It ranks all-things school related, including but not limited to academics, athletics, dining, housing, facilities, safety, and diversity. Students and parents can offer input.  

Here’s what was written recently about UNH Dining:

“UNH has award winning dining. The food is great. The service is great. And the hours are pretty convenient. While most colleges and universities have certain, limited hours of operation, our three dining halls are open continuously all day. The food can get boring and repetitive though, especially by mid-semester."

“Everyone gets tired of dining hall food after a while. But from what I’ve experienced at other schools when I went to visit, UNH has a pretty good quality of food in comparison. It's also in "all-you-care-to-eat" fashion so once you swipe in you can eat as much as you'd like. Unlimited swipes is a bit more expensive, and freshman are required to use this plan but it's totally worth it while you're adjusting to your new schedule and new life.” 

“UNH has some of the best food I have ever had.” 

In 2013, UNH Dining won two silver Loyal E. Horton Dining Awards, given annually for the most successful ideas in menus, presentations, special event planning, and new dining concepts. The previous year, they won a prestigious Goldie Award from FoodService Director Magazine for its healthy food options. Also in 2012, Dining Services was ranked among the best school dining programs in the country by The Daily Meal, an online foodie publication that reports the latest culinary news and trends around the world. 

“I am very pleased that UNH Dining was rated on Niche College Prowler as an exceptional part of the university. The team works hard to impress each guest every time they visit us,” says Jon Plodzik, director of Dining Services. “It is the very fiber of our culture. The feedback on the site represents the results of that effort as reported by actual students from both UNH and other colleges. We use guest feedback from multiple channels as a critical tool to constantly improve our program making it one of the best in the country.”
