There is a new point of pride for the 35,000 Virginia Tech alumni and thousands of students from Northern Virginia: The school on Tuesday was named No. 1 on the Princeton Review’s Best Campus Food list for 2015.

Virginia Tech Dining Services has ranked in Princeton Review’s top four best campus food spots in recent years. The school previously attained the No. 1 designation in 2010 and 2008.

“We are compared with many fine institutions for this distinction, but we also continually challenge ourselves,” Ted Faulkner, director of dining services, said in a news release. “Our dining leadership, chefs, managers, and staff are constantly elevating the program and what we can achieve. To have this announcement come just as we are gearing up for the return of students is truly inspiring for our entire team.”

Staffers from Virginia Tech dining were on Wednesday morning’s Today Show, where they served apple tart and ice cream to hosts Al Roker and Natalie Morales.

Princeton Review editors point out that the school served 7.1 million meals last year.

By the way, Syracuse was named the No.1 party school. To see more from The Princeton Review’s rankings, visit Princetown Review online.
