What’s on a Scottie’s Plate?

One of the concerns for a lot of international students coming to study at a college in the U.S. is food. I remember being nervous but also excited about experiencing new tastes and cuisines. Since the beginning of my time at Agnes Scott, I have tried a wide range of international cuisines as well as the traditional food served in the south of the United States. Here on campus, students can use their meal plans in two separate dining locations. In addition, we can grab beverages, smoothies and snacks throughout a day from an on-campus cafe, the Black Cat Cafe. Check out the website of our diners to learn more about meal plans and view menus. This week I asked a couple of Scotties to share with us a picture of their plates to give you taste of Agnes Scott.

Honorine Rouiller (exchange student from France): Morning is the only time during a day when I don’t have to rush anywhere. So I like to take my time and enjoy a big breakfast in Evans Dining Hall while catching up with friends or finishing readings for a class.

Radhika Rao ’17 from India: One of my favorite restaurants around Decatur is Chai Pani, which serves Indian street food. It is very authentic and tasty. In the picture, I am having Bombay Chili Cheese Fries.

I caught Ann-Christin Holzinger (exchange student from Austria) and Loren Rector ’16  in between classes while they were enjoying coffee from Black Cat Cafe and relaxing on a new set of furniture in Alston Campus Center.

Let me warn you, you will miss your mum’s cooking. It is inevitable. When I get a little homesick, I like to do grocery shopping at the International Farmer’s Market, which sells many international ingredients and fresh foods. I also enjoy eating out at one of the restaurants around Decatur, located a short 5-10 minute walk from campus. Check out this website to see the 10 best Decatur restaurants.
