“At Cappex, we’ve gone from helping students search for colleges and scholarships, to being the place for all things college decision-related,” said Sarah Wilde, Senior Vice President of Marketing.

The days of serving greasy pizza or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at college dining halls are gone -- at least at the schools that made the grade for The 2015 Cappies™.

Cappex, Your College Decision Headquarters™, helps students discover new colleges and scholarships, compare top choices and read student reviews. It was with this mission in mind that Cappex created the 2015 Cappies, a compilation of more than 1.4 million student reviews of more than 2,000 colleges and universities. The result is a list honoring America’s top 25 favorite schools across six popular categories.

Today, Cappex is pleased to announce the top schools that took the cake in the first category – Best College Food.

Here are a few hints about the colleges that received the highest reviews. They:

  • Have such popular food that they've posted some of students' favorite recipes on their website
  • Harvest an active organic garden that grows produce for the dining halls
  • Offer ethnic, kosher, vegan and vegetarian food options as well
  • Have killer lobster rolls

The 2015 Cappies™ recipient schools in the Best College Food category have a few things in common, including sophistication and an abundance of healthy eating options. The campuses often have experienced chefs, award-winning food (like mussels in butter sauce), unique dining atmospheres, wellness classes, and grills scattered throughout campus.

“At Cappex, we’ve gone from helping students search for colleges and scholarships, to being the place for all things college decision-related,” said Sarah Wilde, Senior Vice President of Marketing. “We know that food is an important part of the college experience, and we asked students to give us their opinions so that we could share them with Cappex users. Our goal is to take the traditional anxieties out of the college decision process and make it simple, easy and maybe even fun.”
