If you’re #FerrisForever like yours truly, you might already know of some of these amazing food hacks. If you don’t, we’re here to enlighten you. There’s a reason why this is the best dining hall, and it’s that you can always, and I mean always find amazing food options at Ferris. Sure, we have plastic utensils and plates, and the omelet line might be miles long after your 8:40, but it’s totally worth it. And if you’re in a rush and want to skip some lines, here are some great food options and other Ferris food hacks to better your day.
1.) Greek Yogurt with granola bits and nutella. Add peanut butter or craisins if you’re about that life. There’s never a line, and it’s always available.
2.) Boldly walk past the 200 person pasta line and order some meatballs. Add some cheddar cheese to top it off.
3.) Not in the mood for hot coffee? No problem. Cold brew coffee + half and half + hazelnut or caramel syrup. It’s better than Starbucks.
4.) Vegetarian burritos at the action station again? Gross. Grab a bowl and ask for some chicken at the salad bar. Then head over and ask them to add it to your burrito. You’re welcome.
5.) In a rush to your 10:10 and don’t want to wait the omelet line? Grab some scrambled eggs and head over to the avocado toast station. Add bacon bits, peppers, tomatoes, onions, cheddar cheese, etc. Not the worst alternative, though maybe a bit colder.
6.) In the mood for a root-beer float? If it’s ice cream day at Ferris, grab a couple scoops and pour yourself a cup of your choice of soda, then combine.
7.) If you’re preparing for that Friday night pregame, bring a couple of water bottles and fill them up with your choice of mixer and steal some dining hall cups for the drinks. If you’re feeling particularly crafty, snag a salt shaker for the rim of your drinks.
