St. John Fisher College has maintained its No. 1 status in two 2022 rankings: Best College Food and Best College Campuses in New York.

The rankings recognize colleges and universities who offer outstanding campus resources across its footprint, including classrooms, labs, housing, food, and recreation.

Fisher Dining Services continues to be a jewel in the crown, maintaining the No. 6 spot in the country (out of 1,392 institutions). Niche recognized Fisher for its outstanding on-campus dining experience and positive student reviews.

Under the direction of Andrea Maccarone and Executive Chef Joel Kraft, Fisher Dining Services has earned a high place on the rankings for five consecutive years.

While the pandemic created obstacles to delivering the traditional experience, Fisher Dining rose to the challenge. In fall 2020, they introduced fast-casual Latin American fare through Sono Grill in Michaelhouse; and in spring 2021, they rolled out mobile ordering, allowing the campus community to place food and drink orders via their mobile devices through the GET app.

The Fisher Dining team also hosted several theme dinners, including “Root for You,” which offered plant-based fare throughout the facility in honor of Nutrition Month.
