GrubHub recently analyzed the food-ordering trends among college students around the nation, and named MIT, Harvard, and Northeastern University to its “top of the class ratings.”

The online food delivery service analyzed data from September 2012 to December 2012, and from January 2013 to May 2013. GrubHub found that MIT students ranked No. 1 for “biggest spenders,” with Harvard students trailing closely behind at No. 3.

Northeastern University students ranked No. 4 for “most carnivorous.”

GrubHub also found the following:

College students are 87 percent more likely to order late-night meals than the average person. They also spend 10 percent less than the average diner.

College diners tend to eat less healthy; on average, a college student is 28 percent less likely to order a healthy meal when compared to the average person.
