    Very good food choices -get tired of eating at one place so they have several places to get food.

    The food was absolutely amazing. Not only did it taste wonderful, but there was a large variety and it was very affordable.

    Being a smaller school we do not have fast food chains represented on campus, though you have the option if you walk downtown. The options on campus are Common Grounds, which is our coffee shop where you can by pastries, smoothies, and of course coffee. Then we have Tiger Inn, which is a little fast food restaurant if your in a hurry and on the go. Your food options are the basic burgers and chicken strips but you also have days where you can choose mini corn dogs, mini tacos, buffalo chicken nuggets, and nachos. Of course, you have the main option of The Caf or cafeteria. Here you can get the healthy option of Simply to Go, which offers a variety of sandwiches, fruits and yogurts, and salads. You can also go through the buffet style lunch line and get as much or as little as you would like.

    They have hot meals so I can't complain, but nothing can beat a home cooked meal.

    The cafeteria isn't very good, but we have Tiger Inn, which is a grill downstairs, and Common Grounds, a coffee shop. Tiger Inn and Common Grounds are better for quick and easy meals, and are sometimes better for a meal in general.

    The food is rarely balanced and often sits too long to be fresh and the food usually is chicken or pork. Steak is offered once a month, but it is tough and rare. The meal plans are expensive and rarely worth it, but the coffee shop is a good option.

    You have three choices. Tiger Inn (fast food), Common Grounds (coffee shop/cafe), and the cafeteria. The meal plan options are not as great, but they are said to be working on that.

    The dining is probably Doane's biggest downfall. When visiting the school, you see all the options and think that you'll never be dissatisfied, but the truth is - most people are. It's the average cafeteria food, with not many healthy options advertised or focused on. There is a coffee shop, but if you are ever interested in getting a drink in the evening, it is often not mixed or made well. Tiger, the fast food option, while open at more convenient hours for busy students, does not have much variety once you've eaten there for a couple weeks. The food is satisfactory, and gets you through the day, but not ideal.

    Greek life is a big part of Doane, the sororities and Frats put on many activities for students such as dances and other things.

    Being apart of a Greek group I can speak first hand and say that they are awesome. We do not have national fraternities or sororities like the big colleges do since we are a small private liberal arts college. That doesn't take away from the fact that we have a strong Greek system. The five fraternities on campus are Alpha Pi Epsilon, Alpha Omega, Delta Kappa Pi, Sigma Phi Theta, and Tau Sigma Zeta. The sororities on campus are Chi Delta, Gamma Phi Iota, Phi Sigma Tau, and Omega Psi Theta. The Greek groups are very active in the community with service projects being preformed, to their involvement on campus. They preform skits and provide entertainment during homecoming week as well as hosting dances in Butler Gym. With a wide variety of groups you can find the one that best fits you. With life long bonds and memories joining a Greek group is something you won't regret.

    Greek life on campus is fine. Some people take it really seriously and only associate with their brothers or sisters, but most people are really relaxed about it.

    There are five fraternities and four sororities, all of which are local chapters that rush in the spring. The advantage of rushing in the spring is that you have time to think about whether or not you may want to rush. Each group has its own personality, and each one is diverse, so it won't be hard to find a group that you will fit into.

    None of the Greek groups on campus are nationally recognized, so they are more local. There are no Greek houses and the groups rush in the Spring, so everyone can have longer to decide if the Greek life is right for them and which group. There are four female groups and five male groups.

    Doane is not a campus with the stereotypical greek life. The sororities and fraternities are not national groups, and therefore are specific to Doane, and do not exist at any other college or university. The groups are much smaller, and do not have the university feel to them. The dues are significantly cheaper, and there is a wide variety of groups on campus, even though there are only four sororities, and four fraternities.

    Doane greek life is not nationally affiliated but they do sponsor a lot of campus activities too. For example, they put on dances and parties. They are also very involved in other things around campus other than their own sorority or fraternity events.
