    The food can get repetitive but overall is good and you can always go to the grille.

    I personally like the food but, others may disagree. We don't have any outside fast food restaurants on campus, but there is a McDonald's, Wendy's, and other places right down the street.

    The cafe food is absolutely disgusting, many people have gotten sick from it. The same things are served over and over again-nothing new.

    There are not many choices here. Head my warning. What you will get are many healthy choices in the cafe. And the grille does a better job of more variety.. but that's it. You will not be a late night junk food person as a result of Virginia Wesleyan College. Buying your own snacks is very important if you are a snacker at heart. Especially at night during times of midterms and finals. Make sure you grab a carry-out menu for the local places that gives the campus special discounts by the second week of school. You're going to need it if you don't have your own car.

    Food is okay, but not great. The cafeteria food is from Sodexo and it's pretty much all the same every day. Breakfast sucks, lunch is only good because of Rus, and dinner is mediocre. The Grill is a lot better than the caf, but it's only open limited hours.

    They have an excellent cafeteria that I have had the pleasure of eating in several times. It is mostly buffet style however, the chefs will make items upon request.

    There are many food options for such a small institution.

    The food is hit or miss. Sometimes the cafeteria makes delicious food and sometimes it's repulsive. They try to get creative with food choices but they're usually a flop. I love the food at the grille. It's convenient and tasty. The only problem with both places is that there is hardly any healthy choices for students to make.

    Greek life is big here. There are always greek events and greek unity going on here. The greek townhouses are all together so we can live amongst each other. Each greek organization supports the other.

    The Greek Life is extremely friendly with other organizations. No one sorority or fraternity is dominant on campus, and the Panhellenic Council works to bring all the Greek Life organizations together.
