    Food is excellent. Sometimes it could get a loss of taste because it serves the same food. However, they try to switch it up by having special foods on certain occasions.

    The food can be good. The grill station, known for its philly cheesesteaks, curly fries, and quesadillas is the best option when other stations are closed/other stations don't look appetizing. It's your best option. There is also a miniature Starbucks/deli if you don't have time for a sit-down lunch. The Starbucks/deli stand closes around 6:30 pm, but the cafeteria has coffee, too. The entrees are hit-and-miss, but the dessert counter, multi-flavor ice cream cooler, and salad bar are always there. You can get omelets and waffles at breakfast and weekend brunch. They have vegan and vegetarian options at each meal.

    Food and dining is very good, but is also not a five star either. The food are very diverse and well cooked.

    Food is good. They always have kind people working and are patient when making your meal. There are always little snacks like cookies, ice cream and etc.

    Elms has made their food and dining plan affordable and easy. They have set up a new program which includes all you can eat meals. Upon entering the cafeteria, the student is required to scan an ID card given to them at the beginning of the year. This grants you unlimited access to the cafe for the rest of that meal period, be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You can purchase a bundle of scan points or there is now also an unlimited option. These points also come with guest passes and coffee cafe dollars. As far as taste and selectivity of the food I am extremely pleased and wouldn't change a thing. ElmÃ?Â?s cafeteria features a grill, salad, sandwich, soup, and home style dining section every day. Additionally, they have meals featuring different ethnicites such as a Japanese sushi day and Indian cuisine day. They also include free events such as midnight pancakes during finals week and ice cream socials.

    There is no Greek life here. Parties are usually held in off-campus apartments, though people do *celebrate* in the dorms. If you would prefer a substance-free experience, Devine Hall, located near the chapel, may be the best option for you.
