Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Quite a few of the buildings on campus have at least some sort of fresh food at it. The library has a little caf�© and other small foods area, and there's even a place that serves Starbucks coffee in Hyland. One campus favorite is the Mediterranean grill named Olive, or if you're looking to eat off campus there's the typical fast food chains like McDonald's and Taco Bell, as well as home-style food. If that's not quite up your alley you could try grabbing a pizza from Pizza Hut, Toppers, or Domino's, or possibly even a bite at the Chinese buffet.

    There's plenty of food options not only in the school, but also around the school. There's 15 minute walk to 5 minute drives of food all around the school, so plenty of options. The dining area is also fairly huge and quite comfortable.

    When I ate there the food was very good, and they had many different food choices and drinks to choose from.

    I'd say it's pretty typical college food. Not as many healthy options as I would like, but overall pretty good system. I really like the sandwich shop on campus, Erb's and Gerb's. It is similar to a Jimmy John's. We also have an awesome breakfast in the University Center, and pasta there for lunch. The caf�© is pretty good too, but a little expensive. I would say a meal plan is essential if you live on campus, or spend a lot of time there. It is worth it.

    A lot better than I was expecting- I wish a meal plan wasn't required for those not in Junior Standing or higher, but it's affordable and has a sufficient quality.

    Dorm food is nice because it's easy to not have to try to figure out dinner on your own, but it can be a little gross sometimes. Drumlin was just renovated in 2013, so it's pretty nice and tastes okay from what I've had. Esker is low-quality food, but you get a lot of it. Erbs and Gerbs is always busy and frequently runs out of ingredients. P-Street is pretty good depending on what you get. The UC has a lot of good food but doesn't cover it in the meal plans for the most part.

    Decent greek life, but the campus doesn't solely focus on what they do. It's more about the students as a whole, not those few in frats and sororities.

    Joining a fraternity or sorority couldn't be any easier! Also, students helping students to achieve academic success and higher GPA's.
