    Some days are better than other. Some days the food is actually quite good and you can almost forget it’s cafeteria food. Other days it’s not so swell. They offer a lot of different options which makes the experience a lot more pleasurable.

    Better than last year, but still not up to par. Same food, not the best cooked, honestly would prefer TV dinners over getting a meal any day. Too bad they cost so much money. Half the time the dining hall and/or point cafe aren't even open at decent hours which is sort of sad.

    The cafe is a very good system, it is where you can use your flex dollars and the food is made right infront of you. There is many options to choose from including vegitarian meals. The dinning hall is where you use your meal plan in which there is a buffet. The buffet changes from day to day and once again there is fairly a good amount of choice.

    NONE of the food is good. Cook as much as you can. BRING YOUR HOTPLATE. But don't tell anyone, they aren't allowed (shhh).

    In the first month, I thought the food was great. However, after so long of the same exact meals at the Point Cafe, it gets nasty. Also, I don't think many healthy desirable options are offered to you at the Cafe or the Dining Hall. Another thing is at the Dining Hall, once they're out of a certain type of food, it seems like it never get's restocked. I eat a salad. a chicken sandwich, and fries every day, because it's basically my only option ever. Also I want it noted you can only use a meal swipe once per meal time (Breakfast, lunch, dinner), so don't think your 10 swipes are free to use however you want throughout the week. If you try to go once at 11 and once at 1, you're going to have to pay 9 dollars in flex for a shitty dining hall meal.

    The food is a little pricey but what university food isn't? They have buses to take people shopping at local grocery stores.

    Point Park University has two on campus dining experiences. One is the cafe that offers a variety of different foods (hot and cold), fountain drinks, bottled drinks, ect until midnight every night. The other option is the dining room which has a buffet style assortment of food that students can go and eat for a rather low price. However, if you are not fond of on campus food, there are many other eateries in the Downtown area all within walking distance. Whether it is a Subway on the corner or Pittsburghs Primanti Brother's in Market Square there are many options!

    Food and dining here is far from ideal. They do not offer many convent hours for eating or healthy options. There is also not many options for different types of food, it is usually all the same most days.

    None, wish there was some, I think this also lacks in unifying students in that exact way.

    There is no greek life. But Point Park is surrounded by Pitt and CMU and during your second year you can pledge at either school.
