    There are two campus dining options: cafeteria or Crossroads Cafe. In the required meal plan, you can opt for more or less meals or cafe dollars. The cafeteria can be hit or miss, and the cafe is limited and expensive.

    The dining in Berea College is fair; there is variety, but when attending for 4 years there is no hope to prevent boredom of the food. It isn't immediately noticeable, but give it a couple months and your mind will notice the lack of variety, which will have its toll. So, let's spice things up with some takeout, right? Well, sure, but I hope you like pizza. The choices on food are Dominos I believe and a local pizza restaurant. And an ice cream shop that closes pretty early. Oh, and a coffee shop. But I don't have coffee for a dinner. Again, save yourself the money and the mental toll and buy your food at the local stores (but not the student shop).

    The food is really good, actually. The problem is that people get tired of having the same kind of food over and over for weeks and months at a time.

    The off campus fraternity does mixers with Greek life at other schools such as UK and EKU. The school hates Greek life or even the thought of its presence. The school wants to keep students on campus in order to cultivate a welcoming environment for its students. Although they do not like the off campus fraternity, it is not associated with the school so they are powerless in some regards.
