    I never had any dining done on campus, I always ate home. From other class mates, there commentary on the kitchen is that it is open until certain hours. For some they prefer to cook in there dorms or go out for some pizza. Some students prefer the cooking experience because they are from other cultures with different customs and traditions. It just depends in the person you are.

    The food is tasty and appealing. There variety is limited however because the facility is not very big. You can enjoy anything from breakfast pizza, to burgers, chicken strips, and nachos.

    They need to go back to the cafeteria they had before they had an outside company come in to do the food service.

    Haven't experience that much yet either. It's my first year and I feel you get in where you fit in. Eventually I wouldn't mind joining an honor society and I am constantly working towards achieving my goal of getting there.

    I didn't really hear anything about it. There may have been people who were part of one or another but nothing that was main-frame.
