We've all heard the horror stories about dining halls and cafeterias on college campuses, but some colleges strive to make sure you're not missing home-cooked meals too much. Some universities take it up a notch from the traditional salad bar and sandwich station. According to The Princeton Review, these are the 10 colleges with the best food on campus this year.

10. Bates College

Starting off the list, Bates College features cupcake bars and even bangers and mash.

9. Bryn Mawr College

Bryn Mawr College students can enjoy ramen night, biscotti bars and smiley fries on campus.

8. Saint Anselm College

At Saint Anselm College, you can find souvlaki pockets, fresh taco salads and even Whoopie Pie Wednesday.

7. Cornell University

Not only does Cornell have its own ice cream shop, but the Cornell Dairy Bar even has an ice cream flavor named after former VP Joe Biden. You can also find wing nights and tons of Wegmans sushi at Cornell.

6. Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech campus dining features pop-up restaurants as well as a Cubano burger and a tofu banh mi.

5. James Madison University

James Madison University can do simple, like the Sub Fest it hosted, or more elaborate, like cooking up a croque monsieur with raspberry waffle bread.

4. St. Olaf College

St. Olaf College's campus dining services offer everything from mac and cheese hot dogs to a ramen bar.

3. Washington University in St. Louis

Washington University in St. Louis has Korean fried chicken sandwiches, heart-shaped pizza for Valentine's Day and has even tested out a build-your-own grain bowl.

2. Bowdoin College

With pub-style entrees, creme de menthe milkshakes and Almond Joy mochas, you can't go wrong.

1. University of Massachusetts-Amherst

From gelato-sampling nights to lobster dinners to chicken tikka masala burgers, there's a reason UMass's innovative campus eats made it to the top of the list.

Is food on your campus tasty enough to make the cut?
