To college students, living away from home means one thing: No more home-cooked meals. Goodbye are the days of Mom's famous meatloaf, and hello are the days of "interesting" dining hall concoctions. But living in a dorm room or even an apartment doesn't mean you need to create different ramen noodle recipes for every meal. Nowadays, most dormitories have common rooms on each floor that are equipped with kitchen appliances for residents to use, and you can fit a mini fridge and microwave comfortably in your room. Research what your specific school and dorm allows, and see how effortlessly we can create deliciously easy recipes for college students.
Before a full day of classes, you're going to want a hearty breakfast. Sometimes that granola bar isn't going to cut it 'till lunch, so we've got some cheap, easy recipes that don't require an oven!
Pizza, the holy grail of college foods, is unfortunately not a food group.

For when you just can't have another meal at the dining hall, try out some of these tasty and easy recipes for college students.
Chances are between meals you'll want something to munch on. If you're looking for foods to put on your college dorm checklist, we suggest keeping some pretzels, crackers, or dry cereal as options. If you're looking for more advanced no-bake, no-oven-needed snackage, you've come to the right place.
