Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Very very very bad. By far my biggest complaint of this school. The meal plan barley enough money to keep your heart beating, and the food is known to give people stomach aches. The 24/7 starbucks comes in pretty clutch, but all the other dining areas essentially run on banking hours, closing extremely early, leaving you sometimes to eat a breakfast sandwich for both breakfast AND dinner. Notably, the student government is working to improve this area of the school, and change is on its way.

    The food isn't that good. It's a food court that's located in the Don Taft University Center. They provide pizza, subway, Starbucks, and etc. The workers don't appear to be happy there so there have been moments with the servers just chuck the food onto the plate. My experience has never been the best; maybe yours will be better

    In addition to fine dining facilities on campus, there are numerous restaurants in the area near the school. Off-campus, Fort Lauderdale offers a full spectrum of dining choices from fast food to 5 star cuisine.

    The food is very average. You will probably cruise throughout the options within the first month. There is no formal dining hall more like different places such as Subway, Chick'n'grill (which is like Chipotle) and Pizzaloft. However, most people seem to enjoy that style so they don't complain often. However, there are great places to eat off-campus and there are student discounts. Therefore if you ever get bored of campus food you can go off-campus.

    In my opinion, the Greek Life is very lame. There's no fraternity housing, which sort of seems to be something a frat/sorority needs to be legitimate. Thats just my opinion, I know people that really enjoy it.

    Fairly weak. The letters, chapters and traditions are there, but the actual spirit of Greek Life is noticeably missing. It's common to call NSU Greek Life fake greek, since it doesn't escape the lack of overall spirit the whole university has.

    Greek life at Nova is small but within the years it has made great strides.They are on their way to becoming stronger and bigger by helping the community, putting on events around campus and teaching peers what they stand for. Events such as stroll off, fashion shows and date auctions are held to raise money for causes such as autism and cancer. They also put on event for students to be social such as parties and BBQ's.

    I am not in Greek life because I chose not to. From what I hear sororities are very catty and there is a lot of drama. Other than that it can help you a lot through your college years and looks good in the future.
