    The food here is great! They have a variety of options in the dining hall and they also have other places on campus that you can eat at and get meal transfers at. Their menus are inclusive of dietary needs and restrictions.

    There really isn't much variety regarding food. Of course, you get the same, old burgers and pizza, and then whatever mysteries reside in the dining hall. (The prices are a bit ridiculous if you aren't on a meal plan, just keep that in mind.) The quality of the food isn't the best, but it's edible at least.

    Food at the cafeteria can be good sometimes but you'll find yourself going to different places to dine. if you are into cheap fast food there is a tacobell on one side and a Mc donalds in the other so you have some variety. Some good restaurants around the school that you need to experience first hand to actually judge them.

    The food is delicious. Occasionally, the selection is slim, but the cafe always serves great food.

    CMU provides an all access cafeteria that opens from 6am-8am. You can go as much as you please within the hours it is open. When the cafeteria closes CMU also has a separate place to get food that you pay for each visit, which is open until midnight.

    The food in the dining hall isn't always the best, and they serve a lot of the same things throughout the semester, but it's not completely bad. They do have a salad bar and a sandwich station, as well as pizza and pasta available every night. The other stations in the cafeteria offer a variety of options, and there are other places to eat on campus. The Bookcliff Cafe in the University Center offers a couple different stations that you can purchase food at with cash, as well as Jazzman's Coffee Shop and Sandela's Flat Bread Cafe in Houston Hall.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is just now getting a running start. I believe there are 3 fraternities on campus and 2 sororities. Although there are no official houses for them off campus yet. All of them are only 2-3 years in the making, so they're still building themselves up.

    Greek life is just about nonexistent. There are a couple of sororities and fraternities, but for the most part, they are not relevant.

    The Greek life is barely starting to pick up because there is only one fraternity so far but they are introducing more into the school.

    Sadly, there are only two fraternities on campus. The school is expanding and trying to start a few chapters of sororities; however, there is no recent progress.
