  • Eckerd is known for it's sense of community. There is no greek life, however a family is created at the different complexes on campus. Since the campus is in Florida…

    The cafeteria is nicer than a lot, but doesn't provide a lot of variety. Fortunately, there are three places to eat on campus, which should give you different options for whatever you are in the mood for.

    There are two choices: the café and the pub. From salads to Chinese food, The café has a variety of selections for all sorts of people. At the pub, the meal is cooked right in front of you. I recommend the turkey melt; its delicious.

    Food was average. Not many other options than your cafeteria/meal plan food.

    The food here is really great. There's a good variety of food offered each meal and the pizza is great. You can choose to eat healthy too as they have a lot of food being prepared on the spot as well. Lines can be long though. The salad bar is great and there's always fresh fruit.

    Depending on who you ask, the food is okay at best. I personally think the main cafeteria's food is pretty good, all, and Triton's Pub makes fresh, warm food that's really tasty!

    I happen to love the food here at Eckerd. We also have plenty of options for where to eat. I like the ambiance of the Pub for quick meals and having later evening munchies with friends.

    The food at Eckerd is pretty bland and gets really boring very quickly. The options for vegetarians is very little. I am considering the idea of discontinuing the meal plan.

    The food is ok. It is certainly not unbearable but it is not fancy cuisine. Fortunately, our students are very good at getting what they want and we are currently working towards better food options.

    We have none! All of our dorm complexes are named after Greek alphabet letters, but that's about as Greek as we get.

    Eckerd is one giant fraternity, there is no need for a Greek system here.

    There are no maternity or fraternity environments on campus, and that makes me feel safe and more comfortable at Eckerd.
