the ultimate food high
It’s 1 a.m. You find yourself back at your dorm, and you’re craving something, but you don’t quite know what. Is it a calzone? Cookies? Pizza? Well, you’re in luck! You live in Syracuse, where there are a variety of options to choose from to satisfy your after-hours appetite.
This past summer, Syracuse University received a new title to add to its moniker, and no, we’re not talking about being named the top party school (thanks, Princeton Review). Rather, SU has been named the school that orders the most late-night food. According to The Huffington Post, GrubHub, a popular online food delivery site, released statistics on the ordering behaviors and diets of college students.
The data revealed the delivery behaviors of students in schools nationwide. Syracuse held the titles for “Latest Nights” and “Smartest Shoppers.” We order the most food between the hours of 10 p.m. and 2 a.m., yet we still find time to get the best bargain for our bite.
We got the student perspective on the best places to order food online.
“I cook now, but when I do order online, I order Oishi Sushi through GrubHub,” said Cori Rosen, a junior television, radio, and film major.
“Calio’s, definitely. The buffalo chicken calzone is my favorite,” said Justine Fuchs, a junior public relations major.
GrubHub is partnered with many restaurants on the Hill, Marshall Street especially. These restaurants include Sliders, Insomnia Cookies, and Calios. GrubHub even delivers from Alto Cinco on Westcott Street and China Café on West Fayette Street.
Some students use other methods of ordering food online, like freshman biology major Fanta Cherif, who says she uses the SU Campus Delivery system.
“I usually order through Campus Delivery because I can use my SUper card to pay for it,” said Cherif.
With access to such a variety of late-night food items in the wee hours of the night, it’s really no surprise that we are ranked No. 1 for “most late-night food orders.” Here at Syracuse it’s “Work Hard, Play Hard, Eat Harder.” So Syracuse, in the words of GrubHub, Happy eating!
