  • Dorms are spacious and come at a low cost considering how nice they are. There are occasional parties but nothing ever during the week or at stressful times.…

    The food is as good as my moms, and she is a great cook! I love breakfast and the portion sizes are large. You can't go wrong with anything they serve.

    The food from the SAC (student activities center) isn't always great, but there are a lot more options becoming available each year, which is nice. The SAC is a great place to hang out and get meals throughout the day, but if you are great at cooking your own meals, I would recommend that.

    This is probably worst part about the school. They do have cullionary school graduates, and they cook a variety of meals. It just isnt my cup of tea. Very bland but nice in a brand new facilities.

    Meal plan is a rip off but the housing includes a kitchen and stove so its better to cook one's own food. Sometimes Chart-wells (the schools meal provider) have decent food - especially on holidays. The school also allows students to trade in their meals for Starbucks coffee instead.

    The food at our Student Activities Center is good, but you can get tired of it. There are good restaurants right outside of the campus.

    The cafeteria has a mini Starbucks for those who need their coffee. Their food they have meal plans or you can just buy it their breakfast, lunch, diner, which all comes with a dessert and a drink. The staff is kind and outgoing as well. you can either have what they have on the menu or ask for something to be made if they have it.

    There are 2 sororities and one fraternity. I am not involved in either, but they are very active around campus and in getting events together.
