    The food is good (not great or spectacular). You only have two choices to use your meal swips, Salmo Dining Hall or Nick's Place. The thing that isn't really good about Salmo is the hours. It closes at 8pm Monday- Thursday and 7pm Friday- Sunday. To make up for this, you can pick from a limited menu at Nick's place (Inside Fisher Student Center) and pay with a meal swipe from 8-10pm every day. I have done this many times but for Salmo and Nick's, There needs to be more variety on the menu!!

    For such a small campus Bryant offers many dining options. There is one large dining hall where many students eat everyday. There is a cafe located in the Unistructure (Academic Building) and a cafe in the library. Subway and Dunkin Donuts are located on campus. There is also a dining option where dining dollars can be used at Nick's Place restaurant and a convenient store option called The Scoop.

    There is currently only one place to use your meal swipes - at the main dining hall. The dining hall provides a good variety of all you can eat however the quality and popularity tends to vary on the offerings. There are more options to use your dining dollars - two cafe's with snacks and beverages as well as the very popular nick's place which offers salads, deli, and traditional grill options. Other food places on campus include a Subway, Dunkin Donuts, pizza place, and ice cream/convenience store which all accept regular cash or equivalent. The pizza place Ronzio's is open till 4am on weekends and perfect for late night or drunk munchies.

    The food, for college food, is very good. They have a wide variety of food for all types of people. They range includes a varying main meal, grill with hamburgers etc., a sandwich line, a vegan line, soups, desserts, and an international section that has a variety of food from different cultures which is prepared right in front of you. The dining area is huge and you will also find a seat. There are televisions and windows to accompany everyone as they eat.

    I enjoy salmo. but most people enjoy south. The dining hall offers a lot of variety. There is stir-fry where they cook the food right there for you. Sometimes it is hit or miss.

    Salmonson, the cafeteria, is very average. There are other options but very few and one can only eat subway so many days of the week.

    Greek life is on campus if you wish to get involved. While it is not a huge part of the social life on campus they are still active members of Bryant who sponsor many events. There are four sororities and five fraternities to get involved with.

    Greek life is growing but nobody criticizes you if you are not in a frat/sorority. There are multiple frats to choose from and a few sororities. Alpha Omicron Pi is the newest sorority that came this past year.
