AMHERST, Mass. –  For the third straight year, the University of Massachusetts Amherst ranks No. 1 for campus dining in the nation. The honor was revealed today by The Princeton Review as part of its ranking of the top 20 colleges in 62 different categories.

The announcement further bolsters UMass Dining’s reputation for serving up healthy, sustainable and delicious food prepared by award-winning chefs, says Ken Toong, executive director of Auxiliary Enterprises at UMass Amherst.

The university will be among the schools featured live on NBC’s “Today Show” on Tuesday, Aug. 7 between 10-11 a.m. On the “Today Show” segment, a chef from UMass Amherst will present hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb with three popular dishes – sushi, mushroom blended chicken tikka sliders and local peach macarons. UMass Amherst serves about 4,000 hand-crafted sushi rolls a day, mostly made by student staff. The mushroom blended chicken tikka slider is so good it won a James Beard Foundation Award in 2017. And the local peach macarons are a student favorite.
