The Princeton Review recently named the University of Massachusetts Amherst as the No. 1 university in the U.S. for campus food.
Since 2013, UMass Amherst has been included among the top three schools in the U.S., but this news is a special recognition of the dining staff at UMass who work countless hours to earn national recognition for the university kitchen.
“This honor is shared by every member of our staff who work each day to serve healthy, sustainable and delicious meals to our students,” Ken Toong, executive director of Auxiliary Enterprises at UMass Amherst, said. “This ranking is also a tribute to our students, whose high expectations drive our team to excel.”
In addition to this, UMass Amherst was featured on NBC's Today Show on Aug. 30. The UMass mascot, Sam the Minuteman, was on the show as a guest, delivering Napoleons, pork sliders and other foods to the hosts.
“We’re pleased to see that The Princeton Review has recognized what all of us at UMass Amherst have long known: when it comes to college food, UMass Dining can’t be beat,”
Kumble Subbaswamy said. “Congratulations to the entire UMass Dining family.”
