    RWU is pretty well known for its food. It does have a wide variety of options every day, but it has those same options every day. It's good for about a week, and then you find yourself getting the same thing for each meal. At least the quality is good.

    YUM and voted number 1.... that's all that needs to be said. All the food is freshly made and delicious. There are unlimited options and they do a very good job of changing around and rotating food so it doesn't get boring. They serve fresh fish all the time (I've had stuffed quahogs, lobster bisque, lobster, salmon, fried calamari, scallops, shrimp...) and have a vegetarian bar every day so vegetarians never need to worry about eating. They are also very accommodating when it comes to allergies and gluten free.

    The food here is fantastic. Every weekend they have make your own omelets, and for lunch and dinner everyday you can make your own buritos, quesadillas, and stir fry. They have plenty of options for those that are vegetarians and vegan. Also, everything is offered gluten free.

    There is no traditional Greek life on Roger Williams University campus. The only fraternities present on campus are academic in nature.
