There is nothing quite like being on a college campus – so exciting and so much to take in but undoubtedly one of the best parts is finding a local eatery and getting a vibe for College Life outside of campus. And after a lot of walking, who isn’t ready for a bite to eat. Check out the recommendations below from Students, Parents, and Alumni!
