    The food isn't amazing but you can't expect it to be when they are preparing it for mass quantities. There are always so many options so you will never have to worry about not finding something that you enjoy.

    There is always a variety of food to choose from in the dining hall, as well as some other spots on campus where you can use your declining balance for something different.

    The cafe can get very repetitive, but I like how there are a lot of food options around campus and around the school so you don't have to eat the same things over and over again.

    The staff in the dining hall go above and beyond to make sure that you have something to eat. Though the offered food isn't that good all the time, the chefs are willing to make you something else if you have the time and patience. They also offer cereal, eggs, salads, and sandwiches at all times!

    Like most schools, Utica may not have the best food or the most options, but with that being said, the chefs and cooks at Utica go above and beyond to make sure that they can help you find something to eat. There are many options to get fresh food may for you for all your meals, and there is usually a variety offered throughout the week. They also offer a salad bar and sandwichC station every single day which is nice.

    No matter where you go, it is easy to complain about the food because it just isn't like being at home. With that said, if you are not happy about the food at UC, then you aren't asking for what you need. The chefs will make you whatever, even if it's not out. I'm vegan and they keep dairy free stuff in a special fridge, I just have to let them know what I want. They also recognized we needed more vegan options and created a vegan station this year of plenty of veggies and grains that I've even seen the football players sneak over too. The dining staff is very accommodating and here to help, I'm so grateful for their desire to make students happy and full.

    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.

    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.
