Reviews Dorm Life

    I think the food is really good. There is a salad bar. There is vegan options and gluten free options. They have chefs cook the food for you so the food isn't sitting out all the time it's made fresh. You can get pizza, different wraps and sandwiches, different burgers, pasta. The food is pretty expensive though. There isn't a meal plan like other schools. You can get dining dollars up to like $2000 dollars to spend. If you don't have dining dollars you have to pay tax on the items. You can also use the dining dollars at the convenience store at the dorms. There is also a Starbucks in the school which is nice and you can use your dining dollars there too. There is also two different restaurants in the city that you can use your dining dollars too.

    The food at MMC is pretty decent, but lacks in variety. There's always soup, salad, burgers, pizza, and sandwiches, but not much other than that. It's all extraordinarily expensive, though, and the café itself is very small and crowded.

    I've heard the food is good and there are plenty of places to go, but again, I've also heard it too is more expensive than needed.

    The food is healthy, but very repetitive. Wraps, sandwiches, pasta, pizza, burgers, and occasionally sushi. I give it one star because it is outrageously expensive.

    Really great food! The food always tastes great and seems really fresh! There are so many options including a sushi bar.

    There is a C store in the building which has frozen items, some pre made sandwiches, snacks and canned stuff. A lot of the cooking and meals we make ourselves in our room. Our dining dollars can be used for several restaurants in the area, which also deliver! At the school, there are several dining options, and a lot of choices for those with special dietary needs. Personally, I love the sushi - it is some of the best I have ever had, but only available 2 times a week. As one would expect, food is expensive.

    There is absolutely no Greek life. I'm really disappointed in this, but it would be hard to have Greek life in MMC--the majority of students are women, so fraternities would be almost nonexistent.
