Square Pizza makes national ranking of college town eateries

happy-hippie-pizza_rgbOXFORD — Cheap pizza is the go-to food for college students, and 50 of the best college town pizza shops have been picked for a tasty, new article. A list of “50 Great (and Mostly Cheap!) College Town Pizza Shops” is now on the website of Great Value Colleges.

One Mississippi pizza shop, Square Pizza of Oxford, made the ranking at number 20.

“We looked for pizza shops that were doing more than providing the standard cheap fare college students would expect,” said author Gabrielle Kratsas. “These establishments are getting it done with unique food, inviting ambience and excellent service.”

Each of the 50 pizza restaurants has at least one unique or novel feature that appeals to hungry college students.

Saving money on food is not always easy for college students. A single off-campus meal can easily cost $15 to $20, according to a recent Forbes article. The restaurants on Great Value Colleges’ list, however, mostly charge less than $15 for an entire pizza pie.
