Ask any Stevens student and they will tell you that their favorite part of the week is Washington Street Wednesday (WSW). Differing from the standard Dining Dollars exchange, Stevens Dining went one step further by offering students the opportunity to use a standard “meal swipe” within the local community. In addition to accepting dining dollars, Hoboken-based restaurants and businesses are now a part of our meal swipe program every Wednesday, similar to an on campus meal exchange.

The bustling town of Hoboken is just over one square mile, making it a vibrant, walkable town with amazing views right outside New York City. As one of New Jersey’s culinary destinations, Hoboken holds the record for the most restaurants and bars per square mile. Its main avenue, Washington Street, is lined with boutiques, businesses and restaurants, many of them small, local mom-and-pop shops. Given the opportunity to immerse themselves in the town, enjoy the views, and eat with friends at different eateries, its no wonder students love WSW!

“Washington Street Wednesday has been a phenomenal experience for us at Flatbread Grill. The meal program launched by Steven’s Institute of Technology’s dining services to include local businesses turned out to be financially rewarding and helped us get the word out about our small, family owned business. It gives us great pleasure to provide quality food to so many students who may not otherwise have the opportunity or resources to experience our establishment. The program has provided us with a wonderful opportunity to be a part of these students lives on a weekly basis. Bravo to the dining services team for coming up with such a brilliant, innovative way to not only support local, small businesses, but also provide these students with an opportunity to explore the local community which houses their educational institution.”

“Stevens Dining completely changes how students enjoy meals on campus. We are now able to use our meal plan at participating restaurants in Hoboken which gives a much needed new twist on a college campus meal plan.”

“We love it, it’s great. We love to see the students back, we haven’t seen them in a long time. The positive idea is getting the business community more involved with one of the most prestigious engineering schools in the county. It brings the students into the community and a sense of togetherness. My cousin, Amanda is going to be going to Stevens in the Fall and I couldn’t be happier. After Washington Street Wednesday started, Trip Advisor called me saying we were the #1 pizza place in Hoboken and #5 restaurant in Hoboken.”
