    There are limited food options on campus but they aren’t terrible; and one of them is the cafeteria so that adds more choices throughout the week. We also have “bethel bucks” that are associated with 3 different restaurants off campus which is cool! My only compliant is the weekends, most things are closed on campus giving us less options.

    There are four dining options on campus that accept Bethel bucks and meal plan, and three restaurant off campus, just a walk away, that accept Bethel bucks. The food is always fresh, and there are options for everyone. Vegetarian, vegan, craving Asian food, subway style, cafe preference, breakfast type. It's all there. There are many different meal plans, but my preference is the 14 meal plan. You get 14 meals a week, to spend as you choose. I'm not a breakfast person, so I just go to lunch and dinner. You also get $60 bethel bucks, to spend either at one of the three restaurants, or in place if a meal swipe, or for a snack at the Cafe. Bethel has many choices, and is always wanting to make the students happy.

    There are only a few eating options, but for a small college they are not bad. Not a lot of variety for vegetarians but there are salads offered at every place. Besides the traditional meal plan, you can use Bethel Bucks at any of the on campus locations and even two restaurants located off campus. This is great because it provides a way to eat out for those who might not be able to afford a restaurant normally. The people who work at the dining facilities are absolutely wonderful and have good hearts. This is what makes going there so great, knowing that the people who are making your food really care about you.

    There are three places to eat at on campus. The Acorn, which is like a sandwich shop; Sufficient Grounds, which is more like a coffee shop which serves wraps, pizza and coffee; and the Dining common, which normally has a wide variety of food, from stir fry to pizza.

    I mean we are talking about college food here. The food overall isn't bad, but it's definitely not your mom's homemade meals. There's only three options on campus so if you're a really picky eater then you'll be eating a lot of the same things.

    There are no sororities or fraternities on Bethel's campus, so if you're interested in joining one, Bethel might not be the place for you.
