  • Some of the dorms are better than others,specifically the upperclass dorms and apartments as opposed to the freshman dorms. If you happen to know a few people in one of…

    Not our strong point, but people who visit me from other colleges and eat in our cafeteria have said that our food is way better than theirs, so I guess it's better than most. We have unlimited meal swipes on weekdays but no free meal swipes on weekends. However, you can still get food on campus from the C-store or the Attic. And there are lots of campus events that provide food, as well, so look out for those.

    The caf as we call it, is open at very convenient hours and always has a variety of options for food. It also features a cereal and waffle maker bar that is open at every meal. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

    The food on campus is top notch. The chefs in the caf really know how to cook it up good. Plus, if you don't want what's in the caf, we have a Subway on campus that closed at 1AM which comes in handy.

    The caf is awesome. Unlike most large schools, fast food is not an option here. Although there is a Subway on campus, the cafeteria only serves fresh, home-cooked food.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    A large percentage of the student population goes Greek, but you do not have to be Greek to form a social group or be involved in campus events. Non-Greeks can often attend Greek events. I would recommend that freshman go through recruitment even if they are unsure whether or not they want to be Greek. It's a great way to get to know people, and if it's not right for you, you do not have to pledge anywhere. It's a great experience!

    There are 6 sororities and 6 fraternities. On a regular Friday night you can find much of the campus population at Fraternity Row. Don't feel left out if Greek is not your thing, only a little over half the campus is Greek.

    The Greek life here is very interesting. Since it is a smaller school, there are only 6 fraternities and 6 sororities, and they are all very welcoming. The parties are sub-par.

    Greek life is big on campus however you do not need to be involved in a Greek organization to make friends or have fun.

    greek life is a HUGE part of this campus, they're a part of just about anything and usually are huge sources of entertainment but they also do a lot of socially relevant things as well

    Incredible and in good use. Through the Greeks, outside events are planned, awareness is raised, and lectures are instated.
