College Tours: Where to Eat Near Indiana University in Bloomington, IN

An hour due south of Indianapolis lies Bloomington, an idyllic hamlet interspersed with rolling hills, limestone quarries, and Indiana University. Though IU's stamp is all over the city, Bloomington (like Ann Arbor in Michigan) is no mere college town. There's more than corn in Indiana, and from burgers and pizza to craft breweries and Tibetan food, there's no shortage of great dining options in Bloomington for both IU students and "townies" alike.

College Tours: Where To Eat Near Syracuse University

Syracuse has much more to offer than basketball and blizzards. It's the home of some truly wonderful food, too, much of it right at the fingertips of SU students living on or near University Hill. No, the home of Otto the Orange isn't the culinary wasteland you might expect from a city that gives the north of Westeros a run for its money in the bad weather department, so abandon the notion that you need dreadful dining halls or Domino's delivery, and it's not just Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.

College Tours: Where to Eat Near Rice University, Houston

Rice is situated near the heart of Houston, which boasts some of the best and most diverse eating options in the country.

College Tours: Where to Eat Near The University of Pennsylvania

Philadelphia as a whole is a culinary playground worth exploring, but West Philly has plenty of gems to keep you busy (just a short walk from campus). And getting out into West Philly was easily one of the best things I did while in school. Of course, Penn has no shortage of way satisfying late-night greasy spoon spots, which are equally important. Here's a look at my favorites. More

College Tours: Where to Eat Near Tulane University in New Orleans

New Orleans is an incredible education in eating for out-of-state college students. Upscale yet approachable restaurants school guileless youths in fine dining, but this is ultimately a casual eating town where oysters on the half shell and crawfish are washed down with a cold Abita beer. There's constant exposure to Louisiana specialties like boiled crab, boudin, and even alligator. Surviving multiple Mardi Gras celebrations will give you the skills to handle absolutely any type of future partying situation. More

College Tours: Where to Eat Near Pratt Institute

When I moved to into a Mattress Factory loft in Bedford Stuyvesant, the food options looked bleak. But it was close to campus and the view was phenomenal. It didn't take long to discover I was on the edge of the blooming culinary scene surrounding Pratt. Pratt students are surrounded by affordable, delicious food options, with many more just a G Train ride away. More
