Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food is pretty repetitive. But again that's almost every college. There are three dining spots on campus. The main dining hall which is known as the CC. Located under the dining hall there is a spot called The Underground also known as the The Ugg. And lastly, located by the freshman parking lot there is The Shoebox which is just a small chill spot where you can eat and have television and sometimes live music as well. But if all fails there is a small town near called Madison which has multiple fast food options to eat at.

    The food is pretty bad most of the time. I've gotten food poisoning 3 times this year (so far!). It's pretty much always the same, bland and gross. The dining is nice though...the college clearly doesn't know what priorities to spend it's money on though.

    I would say that the food is fairly okay. They renovated the dining area and opened it just this school year, so the new cafeteria is neat. They divided the dining hall into different sections such as- vegetarian, burgers, pizza and pasta, salad, sandwiches, and more!

    There are two dining areas on campus and one cafe in a dorm. The main dining area serves the same food year round and lacks taste. The second is a fast-food area. It also lacks a variety of options. There isn't much dining around campus either, and only taco bell stays open after 12.

    Food and dining is very good. The shoebox is an on campus restaurant that students get to work at, which helps give them chance to gain experience, work, but also not have to leave campus. All food on campus are short walks and they have good hours. The workers are very nice to students and the food is always fresh.

    The food is so-so but we make it work. There arent very many healthy options and we eat a lot of carbs but occasionally the dining hall will have events where we get to sample different types of new food and that is always fun and tasty.

    The food is so-so at best. The Campus Center (or CC) has good options if you can make the times that it is open. The hours are awkward and don't fit well into a schedule, especially if you have sports practices or band/choir. The Underground is greasy and not that great.

    I will be honest, the food here is just okay. Nothing like fine dining but a lot better than my high school's food. I just wish there were some more options available to us.

    I am not very familiar with all the information about greek life because I am only a freshman. But it's just one of those things that if its for you then its for you. If its not then its not. Not really a big deal, you'll have friends with or without it.

    I personally stay away from greek life, but if you're looking for it you won't be disappointed. About 60% of the school is in greek life.

    Greek life is very popular at Hanover. It is very different from other schools but in a positive way. All students in Greek life have so many chances to gain leadership and meet new people. It is very important to the campus.

    The greek life at Hanover is very different than at a large state school. Almost half of the student body is involved in Greek Life. We have delayed recruitment which means we do not rush a house until after we come back from winter break. This allows the students to really get to know each of the houses and to make friends and get used to the new schedule of being in college in their first semester. After the students are used to this then they are allowed to join greek life and studies have shown this a much more successful way of doing it.

    Greek life is very big here, but you are not pressured to join. Like I said, everyone gets along with everyone!

    Greek Life at Hanover is exceptional. My sorority sisters provide me with support and friendship that will last me throughout my lifetime. The bonds that I have made at Hanover through my sorority have changed my life!

    There are not a lot of Fraternities or Sororities on campus. The Greek Life on campus are tight and can be fun, but if you are looking for a school that is centered around Greek Life then this is not the place to be.

    Greek life is wonderful on campus. If you have a desire to become Greek, then you will be able to find a home easily. We have four sororities and five fraternities.

    Hanover has four sororities and five fraternities. Almost 50% of the campus is involved in Greek life and scholarship is important in the recruitment process. They sponsor philanthrophy events throughout the year and are involved in many organizations.
