    It's great that when you live on campus you get a dining plan. Definitely use it, in the long run you'll save so much money by not spending it on groceries every few weeks.

    commuters do not get a meal plan, but can purchase one. as a commuter, i brought my food with me due to the high prices of food on campus. there are two halls- the main dining hall and then a place where you can have things like coffee, fried foods, subs, etc. sometimes the idea of a hot meal is nice, but for the price charged, you could easily get more bang for your buck at the store. the main dining hall's food is decent, but i've seen a lot of the same things served on many occasions. there is some variety, but not as much as one hoped for. if you're going to be dorming, it is recommended that you keep some snacks in your room.

    the food is alright, there are not always a lot of healthy options though and i'm hoping that with the renovations that will change. overall metz has decent food, but some of the staff are not very friendly, most of the a very good and seem to enjoy their job, but there are one or two who are just not friendly at all.

    Dining meals focus on healthy options but lack flavor. There is a cultural bar that is famous for preparing international meals but mainly prepare Italian style dishes. There is a gluten free section that caters to people with special deitary restrictions.

    You definately have to aclimate to the food at college; its so much different than what im used too, so when im gone for a while, and then come back, my stomach needs adjusting to it.

    The food on the campus is both healthy and there are a wide variety of options. There are vegetarian options and there is also an ice cream bar. The staff at the dining halls are very nice and ask you how you are doing when getting your food. The main dining hall is a buffet style while the separate hall is more of a pick up and go style. The food is good and you never run out of options.

    There are two sororities and two fraternities on campus. Each are very different from each other. Two of which have a house. You can meet a lot of great people this way.

    We have several different opportunities for both men and women to get involved in sorority life. It is a great chance to engage in fun activities and meet new people.
