Brigham Young University has some of the best college food in the country, according to a new study from a culinary website.

The Daily Meal lauded BYU for its six different dining facilities, on-campus farmers market and the Creamery on Ninth East, which acts as the country’s first on-campus, full-service grocery store.

BYU was ranked No. 52 of 60 schools on the list. The top spot was taken by Bowdoin College, a liberal arts school in Maine that consistently tops foodie lists and has its own dining hall food magazine.

The Daily Meal, which covers food, dining and entertaining, claims to produce “more culinary content than any other resource.” It surveyed 2,000 schools for the study, placing a premium on healthy, local food, accessibility of food services, student feedback on social media and sustainability.

BYU was the only Utah school to make the list.
