Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Good, but only relative to other college campuses. The company that provides all of the dining hall meals is Sodexo, which is...edible. Sometimes tasty. There are plenty of (more expensive) third party options on campus though too, like Einstein's Bagels and Red Mango smoothies.

    The food is good. Although you can get bored of it. But this is why they try to incorporate different cuisines. There is also the market place. Here, the are different vendors a a wide variety of food.

    The food is great and the dining halls are clean. However, you do need to watch what you eat. Some people gain weight, however its not all true about the freshman 15. Don't eat past 12 in the dining halls unless you want to be annoyed though.

    Marketplace had great food, but it was more expensive. The dinning halls had greasy college food and no separation for food allergies even though they said they did. However, there is a kosher area.

    Each dorm has their own dining hall. If you live in the dorm, you're required to get a meal plan. If you live in the apartments, you don't have to buy a meal plan. You must buy one if you want to eat in the dorms or other dining places though. *You'll be charged extra in the dining halls. The dorms also have NightOwl which is open from around 9pm (I think) to 2 am. They offer milkshakes, burgers, fries, mac and cheese bites, chicken tenders, and other food for students. There's also other dining choices but they're more expensive. The most popular place to eat other than dining halls is the Marketplace which is a place with a bunch of different restaurants like Chinese food, Indian food, Red Mango, Tully's, Starbucks, etc.

    Compared to other college's food it is actually pretty good. That being said the overall quality compared to regular food is mediocre at best. There are hours during the day (3-4 PM) where the dining halls offer less options because they are between meals and it is difficult to eat. Over the course of the semester the food options decrease which can make the food very repetitive and make people have a distaste to it. Overall the food isn't terrible but its also not great.

    I'd recommend just staying away from it. You'll never run into it by accident; they don't have a big presence here.

    Greek life is very extensive. There are plenty too choose from, whether it's a social or professional organization. There's a good balance. It's not a greek life party scene school, but there's some of that if you're interested.

    There are many social, and business fraternities and sororities on campus however they don't overtake the campus. You do not need to be in a fraternity or sorority to be able to party.

    Our school is 11% Greek. If you're interested in it, it's there, but if not you won't notice it much. By no means are we Greek or geek.

    Greek life is pretty prevalent, but you can learn to have fun without being Greek. Just join organizations and clubs to meet friends.
