    The food isn't bad. Every Wednesday at lunch there is grilled cheese. It is self-serve buffet. They seem to like some form of potatoes and pasta.

    Students at Peru are offered a few different options in regards to meal plans. Incoming freshmen are required to have the unlimited meal plan and any other students may choose this option as well or opt for the fifteen meal plan. The food is separated into sections: grilled, homemade meals, the salad bar, the sandwich corner, the dessert table and the breakfast nook. Students can choose any food they want to eatâ??it is served Buffett style and tray less to be more environment friendly. A lot of students choose to work in Dining Services because it is a flexible job and is on campus.

    The food in the cafeteria is okay at best most of the time, but on occasions the cooks can surprise you. There are always healthy food choices, and quite a bit of variety for a small school. I would recommend visiting the BOB INN as much as possible though becasue you will find much better food in their.

    The food is similar to my high school's food. It's really great some days and other days it's meh. I don't mind the food too much, except the eggs, but they have brownies which makes up for it.

    There are three options for dining at Peru: the cafeteria, the Bob, and the Den. The cafeteria is buffet style and usually has a salad bar, a sandwich bar, desserts, cereal and a line or two of hot food. The Bob is the fast food option, and it is really greasy, but also has some variety. The Den is a coffee shop that also has granola bars and other prepackaged food. All three can be used with a meal plan, cash, or credit/debit cards.

    unfortunately there is no actual greek life really on the campus. there are a small hand full of people who are in fraternities and sororities at our school but they had to go through the greek process at another campus.
