  • The dorms on campus are nothing special. There is not enough space to put one's belongings. Everything always breaks down as well.…

    The breakfast I had at CBU was decent. Their chicken biscuits are good. But I wouldn't say its a five star dining.

    It's only three places to eat on campus. You'll probably spend all you buck money in the Buc or the Canale, seeing that the Dining Hall offers no variety.

    The food is actually very delicious! There are a variety of options. There is a diner, a cafeteria, and a cafe on campus!

    The food can be better, but at least we have food every day. I don't agree very much with the meal plan that everyone who lives on campus have to have one but is cbu rules.

    This is my lowest rating.The cafeteria meal plan is required when you live on campus and though it is all you can eat the food is only a little bit better than high school cafeteria food. They do have a full service salad bar that is generally good and they do have good lunches occasionally but it often hit-or-miss

    Food is good. Generally there are a lot of different options to choose from. Personally, I think lunch is the best time to eat at the cafe on campus.

    Four words; YOU WILL GAIN WEIGHT! That is just how great the food is at this school. The freshman 15 is actually the freshman 50 at this school. So, you will want to take advantage, but DON'T! Lol

    The greek life at CBU is mean. The girls here are more interested in makeup and self-importance than helping the community. It is typically the same popular girls from high school.

    If you're into the Panhellenic Council, it's two sororities and three fraternities. If you're into the NPHC, you shouldn't attend here. The divine nine isn't here. Basically Greek life here is a joke.

    The Greek life on campus is definitely amazing! Everyone gets along really well. They support each others events. The Greeks are continuously increasing on campus as well.

    Greek Life is a big part of on campus activities. However you do not have to be a member to attend most of their parties and other activities. The fraternities and sororities are all excellent if you are looking for that college experience.

    This is one of the rather cool things about this campus. Even though there are national known urban Greeks, and Greeks with mostly caucasian members, race does not stop you from joining. Equality really is a trait that this school holds dear, so you will be apart of something.

    I hear it is great. I have many greek friends, even though I am not a member of any fraternity. People at CBU are all great, in their own way. Each person brings something to the table

    Greek life is great here. There are a bunch of great guys and girls I know in organizations that go about greek life in the right way. It is more than partying here.
