Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The quality of the food at Baylor is very high. Exotic foods are constantly cooked such as Thai, Chinese, Mexican, and Italian along with national favorites such as hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, and wings. There is a salad bar also available in all dining halls. For the health conscientious, nutritional values are also provided for nearly every food served ranging from cookies to pizza and everything in between. Fresh fruits, yogurt, ice cream, and cereal also are always present. The only downside of the dining is that the dishes arenâ??t always thoroughly washed. Some plates and utensils will have previous food grime which can really kill anybodyâ??s appetite.

    Staying healthy in college can be a struggle, but our campus offers many great choices. Fruit and vegetables are always offered and you can always find something that sounds good. There are four dining halls on campus, as well as restaurants such as Chick-fil-A and Starbucks when you want something different.

    Meal plans are expensive, but I think Baylor dining halls have some of the best food out of any college. (know remember it is still dining hall food) It's all you can eat with variety and if you are like some of my friends who enjoy eating the same thing everyday then there is always the basics: Salad bar, pizza, hamburger, chicken sandwich, french fries and normally grilled cheese. Each dining hall has its specialties and most have Gluten Free freezer where there's bread, cereal and sometimes pasta they can make. Future students must be aware of desserts because they make gaining your freshman 15 super easy.

    The dining halls are open at reasonable times on weekdays - early enough for someone to get some breakfast before an 8:00 class, and usually close enough to reach on foot in decent time. As for the selection, it's not exactly great, especially if you're a picky eater.

    On-campus dining is good, but not great. The convenience of having a hot meal made and ready when you want it is nice, but I personally prefer cooking for myself. A good thing though is that there is a lot of variety at all of the many dining halls and you are never too far from any of them when you are on campus.

    There are multiple types of food places on campus. We have what we call the SUB, and it consists of Chickfila, Quiznos, Einstein Bagels, and Panda Express. We also have multiple dining halls on campus, most are open until the wee hours of the night for those late night crams. We have a library where the first floor was converted to a Starbucks right in the middle of campus! And don't forget, there are multiple places to eat outside of campus too! But as much as you eat, you can work it off at the Student Life Center, which is a big fitness center free for all students!

    There are many sororities and fraternities on the campus. Some are specific only to Baylor, which means they are not known nationally. Some are PanHellenic and will be known from college to college.

    I don't participate in Greek Life but it's a pretty big deal here and many people rush, though it does take up a lot of time.

    We have what's called Dry Greek Life. Which means no alcohol allowed. Our greek life is more of a student council helping with campus events and with community service. It's a great way to meet people you'll be friends for life with and it's a great way to serve your community.

    Greek life is somewhat big here since it is a small school, but isn't everything. I am not in a sorority but still am involved with greek life. The people are so fun and sweet just like everyone else. They also hold many activities here throughout the year.

    It's very present, but you can have friends without being involved.
