    The food on campus is good. They have one big cafeteria almost in the middle of campus that has a buffet bar which changes everyday. The food they serve isn't the same as yesterday, it changes each day. Very great food, always enough.

    The food at Alma really varies from day to day. There is the regular cafeteria, Joe's Place, and Stucchi's on the far end of campus. I would have to say Stucchi's is my absolute favorite they have great food and is probably the best place on campus to eat. Joe's and the cafeteria are more convenient and offer some good options as well, there just is not a lot of variety in the food on a daily basis.

    Alma's food has very good food considering that it is cafeteria food. The dinning hall was just completely remodeled this past summer and is awesome. Lots of choices and there is something for everyone no matter your preference or diet.

    It's like every other college cafeteria out there. They have quite a few options and the food isn't that bad! There are days I head straight to the sandwich bar, but then there are days I don't want to leave!

    The main dining hall, SAGA is often made fun of for sub-par food. It's really not that bad -about high school cafeteria quality. If it does mess with your stomach, just drink some Vernor's (ginger ale) and it's be fine.

    Personally, I like the food. They're redoing our cafeteria, Saga, this summer. We have a place called Joe's which takes Munch Money and Meals, along with a place across the street called Stuuchi's which has great ice cream for cheap. The food's good too, but it's kind of pricey. They both take Munch Money, along with a great pizza place called Pizza One. We don't know how the new Saga is going to be, though. We'll see.

    It's pretty hit or miss when it comes to food. Hamilton Commons is okay, but Joe's Place is a lot better. The dining hall in Van Dusen is pretty good as well.

    Hamilton Commons feeds students, faculty, and campus guests everyday with interesting meals with an unnoticeable food rotation of courses. The workers are especially nice, too!

    The food in Saga (aka Hamilton Commons for those unfamiliar with the school) is generally unhealthy and tastes awful. Once in a while they have something good, but most of the time the only good options are the salad bar and the sandwiches (that sometimes aren't available).

    Alma does participate in Greek Life. We have 5 fraternities and 4 sororities on campus that are very big into helping out in the community.

    Greek life is really big at Alma because it is a smaller school. However, the greek life here is run by the school and not by the chapter's national groups. The houses are owned by the college so they are a little bit smaller than a Big Ten's campus houses. There are also greek organization for different clubs like theatre, dance, and academic groups.

    I don't know much about this. I know a bunch of people in Greek Life, and stereotypes do exist about each Sorority and Fraternity (which are kind of true). They have their parties every week, but I've only been to Theta Chi (Fraternity). They're pretty chill and accepting. I like them.

    Greek Life here is pretty chill. There's this webbing of sisterhood and brotherhood throughout the campus that's admirable. I'm a member of the Kappa Iota sorority, and I was worried at first. What I noticed, however, was that hazing is near non-existent. There's this bond throughout the greek community that goes beyond just your own frat or sorority house. We do things together, have our own friendly rivalries. It's great and it's accepted throughout the school. There isn't this wall keeping everyone apart.

    I'm not personally involved in Greek Life, but I go to events held by Greek organizations and always have a good time.

    Greek life is huge at Alma. Six national fraternities, four national and one local sororities, a music sorority, and a service fraternity. All but the last two have houses in the neighborhood around the college. They put on events throughout the year to raise money for their respective charities, and relay for life. There's no pressure to become Greek though, and relations between the different fraternities and sororities and the rest of the student body is always friendly.

    Our greek life is fantastic! About 30% of our campus is greek and it is a strong community. We do a lot of community service and philanthropy hours. We also host things for greeks and non greeks to hang out and have fun. Greek life is incredibly inclusive and tries to make everyone feel at home.
