    The food is diverse with something new everyday. They are open to vegetarians diets and have a vegetarian section everyday. There is a gluten free section as well but it is not as diverse as it could be. The cafeteria is spacious and always clean. There is also an on campus grill called Wily's. The food there is very good and it is nice to go there and hang out while you eat.

    The dining hall is decent. There is a wonderful salad bar. The hot foods are not always great. However, if you want different foods you can make a request and the staff usually listens to you.

    The service is spectacular but the food is still caf food, y'know? You can eat at the MacDonald Dining Hall (cafeteria), or you can eat at Wily's Cafe (diner). You only have limited Wily's money but you can check your caf card as many times during the day as you want (Fall 2013 and onward).

    I would love to see the food get upgraded to more healthy choices with fresh food more often. Most of the foods are not very healthy overall.

    Wily's is delicious but it would be nice to have more options there as well as in the cafeteria.

    The cafeteria is not so great, however, Wylies (the after hours campus dining restaurant) is amazing and students enjoy eating there regularly.

    i am only giving this a three because of circumstances that are finally starting to balance themselves out. for the past year or so, we've switched head chefs way too many times, which has made the food a little difficult to judge. our newest cafeteria head is a sweet woman who is doing an excellent job. and, to be honest, if you can't find anything you want to eat in the cafeteria, you can head to wily's when it opens. with your meal plan, you get a declining budget of wily's money, and it comes in handy. if you're craving some chicken strips, a salad, or a milkshake, it's the best place to go. plus, they have some of the best cookies i've ever had.

    There are only a few greeks on campus, but they are very active in the community with services they do around the town. Each greek is it's own and they each have their own rules. Throughout the year each greek club will hold parties and/or special events that are fun and neat to go to (ie. 20's themed dance).

    I do not know much about this. There is a fraternity and a sorority but I know very little about them. This is not a big thing on campus.

    All sororities and fraternities are required to be service-based, and they do various projects throughout the year. Off the top of my head, we have chapters for Delta Zeta Nu, Alpha Alpha Psi, Alpha Psi Omega, Nu Delta Alpha, Beta Omicron Kappa, and a couple others.
