    The food at Calvin is average. There is a variety to choose from and, if one is to eat at Knollcrest, there is Husdonville ice cream available!

    The food is okay. Some days it is really good and some days it isn't. When in doubt go for a sandwich.

    Average food. Much better than you would get in high school, but nowhere near the most exquisite dining. That being said, I'm gluten intolerant, and they are very good at providing me with food I can eat, and they work personally with any student who has a dietary need.

    It is hard to find good Vegan and Vegetarian food for those who lead these lifestyles, but they have a large array of food for Non-Veg.

    It's almost the same as food that you get in high school as far as weekly variety; some things you can expect without looking at the menu before your go eat for the day. But as far as the quality I would say it is better than most but won't say it's the best in the world because sometimes it's good to order in and go off campus to eat. Although here there are variety of options for people with special diets like glutton free, vegetarian, vegan, and people who just wanna eat healthier.

    There are some nights that the food is a little sketchy (meat loaf night) but the deli is open for lunch and dinner so there's always a sandwich option. There are two main dining halls open for breakfast/lunch/dinner, and then an upstairs deli open all day if your class schedule doesn't let you eat at normal times. They also offer vegetarian and gluten free food for those who require it.

    none; which is nicer than you'd think. There's no pressure to be perfect all the time and to have recommendations and find new sorority sisters. There's no drinking or hazing, and no comparing people to others. It's wonderful.
