    There are two dining halls on campus: Ade and Powell. Ade is the best place to go during the week if you have unlimited Ade swipes in your meal plan. I highly recommend that plan for your first year at A.U. Ade is not open on weekends, which can be annoying, but it's not bad. Powell food is the same every day. You can get pizza, soup, salad, chicken wings, tacos, nachos, pasta, fries, and a variety of other foods. It's pretty tasty. A lot of people I know prefer Powell over Ade. Personally, I think Ade is pretty good too. There's something different every day. Occasionally they'll try something weird, like jalepeno in the mashed potatoes, but usually it's good stuff. Also, at lunch and dinner there is a sandwich station, and a dessert station that always has gelato.

    Alfred University food is offered through AVI Foodsystems, Inc. Since my freshman year a great deal has changed: two dining halls and two cafes have become one dining hall, one cafe, and one food court. While I miss Powell Dining Hall (renovated into Knight's Den food court) and Li'l Alf (a cafe being renovated into student business space), Ade Dining Hall has greatly improved (I feel) in talent and skill. In short, no student should go hungry.

    A wide variety of options are available for dining. If you have special dietary needs they are more than happy to assist when possible. There are not fast food places on campus, the nearest is the next town over. There a few decent restaurants in downtown Alfred that are good alternatives to dining hall food. Not 5 star restaurant quality food but edible and for the most part they try to have healthy options.

    Ade dining hall is right next to Barresi (all freshmen) dorm hall, with Midknight express. Midknight express is open from 8pm-2am and it cooks all the greasy fast food that you love. It also has over a dozen flavors of ice cream, lots of different beverages, and salads/yogurts if you don't want the greasy-ness. Ade serves Breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a buffet-style serve-yourself type meal system. There is also a sandwich and soup section if you want a sandwich (someone makes it for you!) Ade also has a dessert bar...the gellato is fabulous!

    The smaller cafe's and shops are great for snacks. Powell and Ade are great buffet style places to go and eat.

    I've always liked the food. They always listen to advice and try to find out what you like or want to see in the dining halls. One of ours just got a huge upgrade.

    Ade is awful but powell is awesome. Ade doesn't care if you are a vegetarian and they rarely are serving. Also their dishes are zero percent functional. Powell always has something yummy plus Tuesday is taco day.

    Just recently the school upgraded one of the two dining halls. It looks very modern and has that cyber cafe feel. The food is already set in bowls/on plates and ready for you to pick up. The down side to this is that you can't serve your self, but the up side is that you can get up and get more like and all you can eat buffet.

    There isn't any greek life that the campus recognizes, however we did used to have a greek life and the houses are still available to live in for students.
