    The cafeteria is an experience. If you want to eat healthy, you're going to eat at the salad bar everyday.

    The food in the dining hall is decent. You have the choice to pick from stuff on a grill, deli, sushi, home cooked meals station, pizzeria, salad station and a global station. The menus changes at most of the stations daily. There is also a Starbucks that is located in the dining hall.

    One of my greatest concerns are having to take unknown meals that are probably fool of fat and unhealthy ingredients I don't know of! But FIT's dining facilities offer a range of healthy meals that put my mind at ease.

    I don't have a meal plan but they do have a secret starbucks in the cafeteria which only students can go to, so the the morning lines are very short compared to the other starbucks in the area!

    I don't like the cafeteria food. I think it is incredibly fattening. They sell burgers and french fries all the time and they are so expensive. I much rather go across the street and find something else to eat. There are so many places around in which you can get better quality food, for either the same price or cheaper. The cafeteria does have it's healthier options, but they are pricy and you won't think it's worth it when you taste it.

    The school has a good cafeteria with a wide variety of options. Plus, my favorite place, Starbucks coffee inside the school. Aside from eating there in between classes there's so many places in Chelsea, especially along 7th Avenue, where you can eat, drink, and find really affordable lunch specials. Anything from sushi, Japanese, Mexican or Italian cuisine is a few steps away form the campus.

    Just please forget the meal plan. For your own sake. I do wish the best for those who work in our cafeteria, and at first glance the different stations seem appealing but trust me by the end of the first semester that pile of unseasoned rice and brownish leaves from the salad bar are going to look as good as the dirty socks you saw in the subway station platform. So if you can manage to avoid Nagler Hall and Co-Ed you can opt out, and get yourself some real food. Whether it's Two Bros Pizza, Chipotle, or one of the various restuarants and idners all across Midtown you literally will be in for a treat. At least you have options here!

    There's not much to say about the food, it taste just as good/bad as another cafeteria food. The vegetarian section is atrocious, all of the pastas look so good but are tasteless. The pizza and bread sticks are pretty good. There's always a chef that will make u almost anything even if its not on the menu which is awesome. During my first year I mostly ate panini's and hoagies which were excellent. When it is common hour the dining hall is packed so getting anything to eat may take up to 15 minutes. There is also a salad bar which turns into a fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt station in the morning.

    There is one sorority and one fraternity. Greek life isn't huge here, so if that's important to you, better to look elsewhere.

    Greek life is non existent. This school is not associated with any fraternities or sororities.
