    There is a cafeteria and a Papa Johns on campus. Cumberland is surrounded by all the main fast food places and plenty of restaurants.

    The cafe could use some variety, and maybe a little less butter/bacon in everything. The bistro is saving grace in times like that, but pizza and subs do get kind of old after a while.

    So there's not a lot of food on campus, but what we do have is pretty good in my opinion. We have a cafeteria which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a buffet-style format. The menu is always posted online or outside the cafe, so it's not like you'll swipe your card and end up hating everything there. There is a soup/salad bar and a dessert table as well. I am not a picky eater so there's generally something I will enjoy. There is also the bistro, which serves pizza and sandwiches. We also have a kiosk which serves Starbucks Coffee and has little stuff like wraps, fruit, yogurt and granola, cookies, chips, candy bars, bottled drinks, etc.

    The cafeteria has amazing food and many different selections of cuisine. We also have a Subway and a Starbucks on campus. Also, the college will have local fast food or restaurants cater food on campus. Needless to say, the food and dining is great!!!

    The dining is really good at first, but it gets old after a while. Also, they do not have a lot of options on campus. Like most schools have several places to choose from including fast food, Cumberland doesn't have any.

    The cafe has a very wide selections of food. From the well rounded salad bar to our on the grill stations, as well as a very equipt desert station. But if your feeling like getting a sud or a pizza, The Bistro is the place to go. Using your Flex Dollars will get you a pizza, energy drink, and cookies!

    A lot of students join the frats, or the one sorority. From what I've heard they are great programs.

    The Greek life at Cumberland is pretty small, yet involved. The Greeks seem to share a close-knit bond and do a lot of community service and other projects around the university.
