Kalamazoo College Eating Conditions
At Kalamazoo College, students are generally dissatisfied with the school cafeteria. Of the 52 students surveyed, Only 30.8% of students preferred to eat at the cafeteria. Of the group of students that preferred the cafeteria, 94% cited convenience as a reason while NONE of the students cited the high quality of food, Indicating that most students eat at the cafeteria because it is the easy choice and not the satisfactory choice. Also, the average quality rating of the cafeteria was 2.6 on a 1-5 scale where 5 was very high, 1 was very low, and 3 was average. This shows that students believe the cafeteria quality is below average. Students also rated the variety at 2.7, the freshness of food at 2.5, and the value at 2.4, all being below average ratings. From these data, it seems as though the school cafeteria is subpar and that some changes are necessary to increase student satisfaction.
