  • Keep a positive attitude about your living arrangements, and you'll find when you meet your roommates, 9 times out of 10 you'll like them. DO make sure you set rules…

    CMU's dining halls have an abundance of food choices. The staff is always friendly, patient, and willing to help. The food is overall very good, but there are obviously going to be some days where it is a little under par.

    The food and dining is great. I always found something I liked and there is a good variety. What's also nice is that they have a display of what food they are offering that day right when you walk in so you don't have to walk around trying to find something you like.

    Go to the RFOC (Real Food on Campus), they have so many options for everyone, including vegetarians and vegans.

    There is a wide selection of food and places to purchase food. Healthy options are abundant and with a meal plan you are not likely to go hungry. Other than the cafeteria food, there are many places around campus that accept flex dollars (on your student ID card): Subway, Quiznos, Starbucks, and more.

    The food was not the healthiest, but they did their best to present it in a friendly way. I appreciated the healthy choice, for example the fresh salad bar. The nutrition information was always available.

    The dining on campus is really good if you go to the RFoC or FFoC. There's so much variety and healthy options too. There are many places to grab a quick snack as well!

    Like most cafeterias the food could be better. But there is a great variety for it being a cafeteria and I like that they have choices for vegetarians and people who have allergies.

    The food is very good. There are many residential restaurants around campus and each one has a variety of food. There should always be something that you like. If you don't feel like going to a residential restaurant you also have flex dollars which come along with your meal plans. It's money that the school gives you to spend at on campus markets, pizza joints, sandwich shops, or cafes like Starbucks. There are many options for eating which is a great thing to have.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is EVERYTHING! I did not want to join a sorority. There was no way I was going to be around a bunch of snotty, pretentious, I'm better than you kind of girls. HOWEVER! They are not like that at all. They are all so very sweet, considerate, funny, down-to-earth, happy, fun-loving women. They do not starve themselves to keep a certain image because they know that true beauty and character is from the inside. It is truly a marvelous community and organization to get involved in. #DPhiE

    Again, I believe Greek life is amazing at CMU. I was in Alpha Chi Omega and it changed my life for the better and I met my best friends there. Greek life is a great way to be apart of the community and they encourage you to study hard and give back to the community.
