    Food was good, though I would have liked less salt on my pizza.

    In many ways, the Cafeteria is the hub of campus where people come together. I work in the Cafeteria and can safely say that the area is kept neat and clean. There is a decent amount of variety-substation, pizza station, salad bar, dessert bar, fried station, and the main entree line. My personal favorite is the To-order station where they make wraps, omelets, and other delicious items. Available drinks are pop, coffee, tea, different kinds of juice, different kinds of milk, hot chocolate, and lattes. Two daily soups are always available. There is always bread and bagels available by the toaster oven (with cream cheese, peanut butter, or jelly). There is a waffle maker and a constant supply of ice cream. Even with all the options, the main entrees and sides do become repetitive. Another complaint is that hot foods and soups are often lukewarm rather than steamy. Not all meals are equal. There are ticket-nights where better main entree options are available.

    The food is definitely amazing. It was not what I was expecting when I thought about college food.

    The food is alright. The cleanliness of the dining area is good. Many students each at the cafeteria because they don't have money to buy food, yet if they did have money, they would more than likely buy food over eating in the cafeteria.

    If you are on the meal plan, the CafÂ?Â? is where you will eat your meals. The food is very good, though the meals can get monotonous. (They do offer ice cream from 7am-7pm, which helps immensely). However, there are alternate dining options like the 586 cafe, and Baker Bros. cafe downtown at the Hunter Hall nursing facility-both offer Starbucks coffee. Each student is given $30 per semester to pay to eat at these places.

    AMAZING! I love the food here! There is a continuous buffet from 7 am - 7 pm with a number of choices, along with a sub line, pizza buffet, to-go line, fruit counter, and desert bar. There is only one meal plan, and students are allowed up to 3 visits per day at anytime of the day. I like this plan because if one wishes to stop in for an apple or hang out for a while with friends, those options are available; you aren't confined to a certain dining time. The cafeteria is probably the most inviting place on campus, and during the hours in which most people are not eating, it can be a very nice place for studying.

    The food in the cafeteria is not terrible, but it does get repetitive. You will get tired of the food they serve, but I think that happens at any college someone attends.

    Being a Christian school, there is no Greek life. However, some of the clubs and the Oakwood dorm like to poke fun at this idea by designing shirts that have Greek lettering that resemble that of sororities and fraternities (i.e., Ã?Â?Ã?Â?Ã?Â? for Oakwood). But that is about it.

    They have a lot of traditional and historical classes. They have two level of Greek classes taught by a very educated doctor who knows multiple languages, which can help bring Greek into better or clearer understanding.
