    The food at Utica College is decent. The staff in the dining commons makes accommodations for students just in case you have any allergies or don't eat some of the things they serve. They try their best to serve different types of foods and there's even a few other places on campus where you can get food if the cafeteria doesn't interest you.

    I am a picky eater and I have to say I can almost always find something to eat in the dining hall. Even if I can't find something in the dining hall, I can always go to Pioneer Cafe. They always have really good food! In the dining hall, I often ask the chief to make me something else due to some food allergies I have. They are super helpful and always there to help me!

    I ate on campus for the first 2 years of my college experience and like all colleges it is not like food from home but the dining hall does their best to be as close as possible. The dining hall here offers a lot of choices from vegan, gluten free, vegetarian...etc. and the coordinator of the dining hall works with individual students to help accommodate food needs or allergies.

    It is definitely not Mom's home cooking but our cafe does offer many different choices throughout the week along with a Subway style sandwich bar that is open throughout the entire week that you will have unlimited swipes into as a freshman. I do wish the cafe was open a little later since it is only open until 8. There is also the the Pioneer Cafe and a Mexican grill that you can use your pio points (100 or 200 depending on meal plan) to purchase food. These are open until 12 on weekdays and 11 on weekends.

    I do not eat on campus very often because I commute, but the time I have, the food has been pretty good. The other thing that I like about the dining commons is that they are pretty accommodating for people with food allergies. I cannot eat gluten, and if you ask, they will make you something separately so that you can eat food without cross contamination.

    The cafeteria isn't the best but the workers do take requests. If there's something I do not like in the cafeteria, I can request a meal from the workers.

    The dining hall just got renovated in the Summer of 2017. It may not be mom and dad's cooking but it is still decent. There are several different options each day so you will never really get sick of eating the same thing.

    I like that we have a ton of different options for food. We have our main dining hall that was recently updated and several other smaller places to get food on campus. What I like best is that the dining staff will take your suggestions into consideration. One day I asked if we could have sushi and within the next week, we had a chef that would make personalized sushi for each student.

    The dining commons is brand new, the food is good. If the food doesn't appeal to you we have Pioneer Cafe to get various food from.

    We have several sororities and fraternities for those that are interested. Greek life offers a network of friends that eventually become family. We also have one co-ed organization that is specifically service based which looks great on resumes while also offering the benefits of a regular greek organization.

    Utica College has many on campus Fraternities and Sororities. This past semester I was initiated into a women’s fraternity known as Theta Phi Alpha. With my experience in this I can say that with the college allowing Greek associations on its campus provides students with a chance to interact and get involved within the campus community. Many things we do include community service such as raking leaves for seniors and volunteer work such as running booths and tables at school functions. This gives you many opportunities to enjoy Greek life and make connections around campus and in your community as it also helps you to improve your communication skills and learn professionalism when cooperating and working with other clubs and Greek organizations on campus.

    There are a lot of different greek organizations on campus. I am a sister of Kappa Delta Phi National Affiliated Sorority. We emphasize philanthropy, and this year all of our philanthropy fundraisers have helped benefit the Alzheimer's association. One really great thing about our greek life on campus is that we all get along really well together, and are very supportive of one another's goals and ideas.

    The Greek life isn't the best for every culture on campus. There's only one divine nine on campus which is Phi Beta Sigma. There are two Latina sororities and one Latino fraternity.

    Greek life does exist on Utica's campus but is not too overpowering. I decided to join the co-ed service fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega. Together we complete several different service projects in the local are to help the campus, the community, and the nation. We strive on the three principles of leadership, friendship, and service and this organization has helped be become a leader and help prepare me for post graduation.

    I am apart of a Community Serviced based organization called Alpha Phi Omega (APO), but we also have a lot of social Greek organizations as well. APO has been amazing because we have been able to do community services around campus, the community, and for smaller organizations.
