I do the best I can entering the individual ingredients.  Or, I look up the dish (ie chicken teriyaki) and see if I can find a prepared item that is close to what I had.

You should really talk to whomever plans the meals at your college's cafeteria.  I went to a smaller state liberal arts college in Texas, and they listed a lot of nutritional information for all their meals, so I wouldn't be surprised if the information is at least available.

Another option is to try the recipe tool on here.  You also might feel silly whipping out a scale, but estimating the weight of food is HARD.
