Two Minnesota colleges get an ‘A’ for eats

Two private Minnesota colleges landed a top-10 spot in the "Best Campus Food" section of the Princeton Review’s "The Best 371 Colleges 2010" list.

St. Olaf College in Northfield took the #3 ranking, while Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter ranked #8.  This marks the second consecutive year that Gustavus ranked high in the eats section.

"We are very proud whenever our students feel they are receiving excellent services," Gustavus President Jack Ohle said in a press release.  "They come to Gustavus Adolphus College because of our outstanding faculty and high-quality programs. We continually strive to provide our students with the best overall experience that they expect and deserve — from academics to student life."

So where did the University of Minnesota rank?  Unfortunately, Flex Diners, the U didn’t make the grade.  But at least we aren’t on the "Is it food?" list, topped by the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY.
