Students who want to dine off-campus can eat at the various ethnic restaurants on Fourth Street near Sample Gates. Cuisine ranges from Turkish to Tibetan to Greek and many others in between. 

Maia Law, a sophomore, said the restaurants are a better alternative to on-campus dining. 

“I like being able to have a big variety of different cuisines,” Law said, “and it’s really cool to try new dishes I’ve never tried before.”

Law said her favorite restaurant is Siam House, a Thai restaurant, because they offer good curry and reasonable prices.
