Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are three dining halls on campus and they all bring something different to our plates. If you want to eat healthy there are plenty of options every single day. There's constantly fruits and vegetables to choose from daily, as well as great home cooked meals.

    I would say the food here is average. Homestyle is either a hit or a miss but there is a sandwich station in both dining halls and Butterfield always has a pizza, and Hope always has burgers. There is a fairly decent selection of food.

    When I toured I stopped at one of the smaller little cafe areas and it was so nice and cute. But other than that they have a large amount of options and when I was there they had fresh lobster right outside in the quad. I mean what more do you need?

    Overall, the food isn't bad. It does get old when the same things are constantly being served though. The dining halls always get busy around the same time and it can be hard to find a table for you and your friends. I've had to walk around the dining hall for 5-10 minutes before to find a table.

    On campus dining is available and impressive. Off campus dining exists in excess, with tons of cheap, delicious options throughout the region.

    The food is diverse enough, but it gets old after a while.

    The food here is URI is actually not bad. So far i have had many great breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. The trick to eating good food is knowing what you want and how you want it. Also if you hate the food here you can always eat at the many restaurants around the campus you can even order food.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

  • I am a current student here

    Greek life at the University of Rhode Island is intense, mainly because it's huge competition to see who can raise the most money, and obtain the highest G.P.A. Anyone can rush and attempt to join, but that doesn't mean you will get a bid from that Fraternity/Sorority.

    Join Greek Life!! It is truly the best decision I have ever made. It instantly gives you friends to hang with, which is great at a brand new place. I do not know what I would do without Greek Life.

    Greek life is very prominent on campus, the fall and spring are filled with pledging activities. The houses are new and students tend to live there for their sophomore through senior year. There are academic sororities and fraternities offered as well for people who think a regular sorority or frat is too much work.
