University of Maryland's food truck becomes new favorite for hungry students

Following success, dining service may add a second food truck next year.

Oct. 9—A campus’s food can make or break a student’s decision to attend a university. With two standard dining halls, 251 North’s all-you-care-to-eat dining, Stamp Student Union’s sizable food court, Adele’s sit-down restaurant and takeout and a host of cafes and convenience stores, the university provides enough variety to fit nearly any student’s lifestyle. And should students find Dining Services’ offerings not to their liking, a wide-ranging selection of restaurants lie just off the campus on Route 1.

Nonetheless, without fail, about two months into every semester, students seem to grow tired of on-campus dining. Each trip to the dining halls feels more resigned, and even the prospect of a buffalo chicken wrap (a popular Dining Services staple) fails to incite much excitement.
