Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The main place to get food here is the University Commons. Their hours are 7 a.m. â?? 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. â?? 7 p.m. on weekends. On weekends they only begin to serve hot food at 11:30. There are options for Kosher and vegan diets, a salad and sandwich bar, and grill station. They have a bakery which serves breakfast foods such as muffins in the morning and desserts from about noon until closing time. There is a separate room with foods made without gluten for students with allergies. There is always fruit, bread, soup, and bagels available. As you can see there are a lot of options and some of the food is okay but most of it is just something you eat because you are hungry. I get all of my meals at Commons, so I donâ??t know a ton about the other places. The Hawk Hub is located underneath Commons, and is more of a restaurant/bar atmosphere. They serve food such as burgers and fries, and are open later than Commons so students can get food later into the night. The GSU (Gengras Student Union) also has a cafeteria with different options for food â?? eating here requires purchasing food with either dining dollars (students get a certain amount per year) or money. There is also a Subway on campus that is open until 1:30 a.m.

    The food here is always amazing. Here's what you can look forward to at Commons, the main dining hall (where you'll probably eat 99% of your meals): Breakfast: eggs, bacon, sausage, and one or two other miscellaneous breakfast items. Lunch: the grill will have either hamburgers, chicken sandwiches, or something similar. Dinner: the most common themes are Italian and Spanish, but it's always something different. If you don't like what's being served at any time, there's also the deli (which makes sandwiches), the plural soups and/or chilis, the kosher station, the salads/fruit station, and the miscellaneous station that makes anything from omelettes to Chinese food, depending on the time of day. There's also a bakery that makes delicious pastries and other dessert items. Failing all that, there's a few wafflemakers that students can use. Because all of these are contained within Commons, they're all-you-can-eat. However, there are also many non-dining-hall, non-all-you-can-eat options.

    Campus food is actually pretty good. They're constantly renovating and taking student suggestions.

    Most dining halls just got redone and are constantly improving food choices! There is always something very good to eat. We also just got a Moe's put in to go along with other well known places to eat like Starbucks and Enstine's.

    If you're looking for a scoop of ice-cream or a nice roast beef dinner, you're just a swipe away. From 7am to 1:30am, there are many options to choose from that would satisfy your cravings. The university offers a market packed with your everyday needs, Einstein's bagel for your breakfast meal, and a deli for those who want to watch their weight.

    I am not interested in Greek Life due to the requirements of joining, so I have no feedback for these types of clubs.

    Greek life is very strong on the University of Hartford campus. There are so many choices of fraternities and sororities to choose from that would love to invite another member into their organization. It is a pleasure to be apart of a group of wonderful people and I would urge you to look into them when you arrive.

    Greek life is pretty much a joke. DG and SK are the more elite sororities, but its all about who you know/ how hard you party. SDT and AZD are the middle, then there's DZ and PM, there the lowest.

    A very friendly community. Greek unity is very strong here, people have close friends from other chapters in every single chapter. Chapters are very small, the largest being about 55 members, so everyone really gets to know one another, and chapters differ in their personalities and interests, rather than the stereotype of fitting the look. Thats a pretty cool thing about the Greek community here.
