    Bethel is so lucky to have such a great dining center and such great food. I am so blessed to get the nutrition I need while getting a degree. I am so thankful to have so many different choice each day. I am also thankful to the students and employees of Sodexo who do such a great job and really care about helping people with dishing out their meals. They always have a warm smile and are always willing to listen. I am so thankful again to have such great food and to be able to go back and get more as many times as I want during the same meal. Some schools or universities do not have high quality food like Bethel University does. It is so nice to go to the Monson Dining Center and enjoy a meal or two or three everyday.

    I would for sure give our Dining Center 5 stars! I remember when I was in high school looking at other campus', the one thing that always turned me off was how bad their food was! However, I was (and still am) blown away but how good our food was. We have so many options just in the DC: customized pasta, pizza, customized stir-fry, burgers, the list goes on and on! In addition to this we have The Grill which is our restaurant on campus and we have the Royal Grounds which is our coffee shop (Caribou Coffee.) All of the workers are so nice which makes going there 10X more enjoyable! The best part of our Dining center is defiantly the deserts...they are SO good.

    The food is very good, and we have a beautiful dining hall. We have a wide array of food, but it doesn't necessarily change that often. Because of that, the food can get quite repetitive.

    The food is amazing. My favorite place to eat is the stir fry line. There is also a sandwich like which is better than subway.

    There are so many choices on what to eat and I haven't got sick of the food yet. All of the food is very good and you can even make suggestions to the staff and they respond back.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    There is Greek life but it is not particularly obvious or well known. Most Greek life seems to be centered on alcohol and parties, and since that kind of activity is frowned on at Bethel, the Greek life is more centered on medical students and their studies.
