34. Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tenn.

Serving dishes like chile-rubbed tilapia with asparagus, grilled mustard chicken with polenta, red lentils with kale and miso, braised short ribs with collard greens and candied sweet potatoes, chicken-fried steak with white gravy and green peas, and roasted salmon with sweet chipotle glaze, Vanderbilt is giving its students a glimpse into world-class dining. Luckily, Vandy knows stressed undergrads are always hungry, so four of the dining locations are open 24 hours, including the Commons, the central buffet-style dining hall. However, if you’re feeling adventurous and want to leave campus for food, have no fear. Vandy gives students the opportunity to take part in a Taste of Nashville, where students can venture into Nashville’s growing food mecca and eat at participating restaurants for just a meal swipe.
