    The cafeteria food is typical school food but they do have specialty bars that are extremely tasty. There is also something called Blazer bucks that you can use to get some even tastier food after or during the cafeteria hours.

    The food here is horrible. They do not meet student's needs and lack variety.

    The food could be a little better in the dining hall, but you can always find something to eat in there. The only other on campus food places are pricey, but the food quality makes it somewhat worth it. They have a healthier expensive food option and a fast-food type cheaper option.

    Pretty bad. There's not enough choices and the choices they do have are not appealing and taste nasty.

    The food is average in my opinion, some weeks the food is great, others it's not. But, there is always a salad bar and soup and generally show chefs who are making different meal options. There are vegan and vegitarian options. Oh and during the weekdays there is always pizza! The Blazer has a grill for fried foods and there is a healthier option bar in there but it is only open until 8pm for the moment.

    The Coblentz Dining Hall has a large variety of food: salad and vegetable bar, pizza, deli sandwiches, soups, grill items, vegan bar, made to order pastas and salads, and many sweets in the dessert area to choose from. The hours of operation are from 7 am to 8 pm Yet, they do close for one or two hours during the day to prepare for dinner. During this time the Blazer and the Freshie located in Whitaker Commons are always open until 11pm.

    There is no Greek life on campus. However, there are honors societies that do community work and some events. Also, some students are trying to start a fraternity.
