    The main dining hall has many stations, giving us so many options for each meal! We also have what's called flex dollars. This is money on your student account that you can spend at the other food places on campus, such as Cafe 1812 (which sells Starbucks products!), Jack's Corner (they have the BEST chicken fingers!), and the smoothie bar.

    It isn't mom's cooking but it isn't terrible. It gets old after about a month, even though they rotate the menus. All of the food is freshly prepared everyday. The food can be very bland, however, this is coming from someone who is used to using a lot of seasoning in their food. The kitchen staff is extremely helpful and friendly.

    Freshman have carte blanc the first year. The variety and quality of the food was quite fresh and delicious. They have a family based company who take care of all the necessities, as well as two trained chefs on staff.

    On my visit, the food was excellent. Many options are available, it's all you can eat, and the basic meal plan includes unlimited meals!

    The food is unappetizing most of the time. The food provider tries to appeal to a wide range of culinary tastes, so the food is very often something strange I've never heard of and very bland. Being raised on Tex-Mex, I like a little more spice in my food!

    The food can get old after awhile, but the kitchen staff have been working hard this year to switch things up and bring in new recipes and ideas.

    The food is pretty much what you would expect of any college cafeteria. We are catered by Parkhurst Dining. Every day, we have a salad bar, a couple soup choices, pizza, burgers, a deli where you can custom-make sandwiches, a bagel bar with jam/cream cheese, various cereals, a ton of desserts (the chocolate chip cookies are pretty awesome), a hot food special, a vegetarian special, and whatever is at the Bravissimo bar, which varies between omelettes, stir-fry, and stuff like that. So if you're a picky eater or just don't like the special that day, you can get creative and mix and match. There are also a ton of fast-food joints and local restaurants within a close radius of campus if you want a change every now and then.

    Personally I am not interested in Greek life, so I don't know much about it. But I do know that there are A LOT of groups on campus. There is entire dorm building on campus and each section is for a different sorority/fraternity. There are some in a separate building, and many off campus in their own houses.

    Lycoming employs a very very strict no-hazing policy, so Greek life here is safe, fun, and constructive. We have five sororities on campus, two national (Alpha Sigma Tau & Alpha Xi Delta), and three local (Gamma Delta Sigma, Alpha Rho Omega, & Beta Phi Gamma). We also have four fraternities (Tau Kappa Epsilon, Phi Kappa Psi, Kappa Delta Rho, & Lambda Chi Alpha). Roughly 25% of the student body is Greek, so while there is a presence, it isn't overwhelming, and you certainly won't be pressured to join if you don't want to. The Greeks here are not bitter towards independent students at all. In addition, to help make the transition easier, students are not allowed to pledge themselves to a Greek organization until they have completed one full semester. This helps make sure that they're fully assimilated into life at Lycoming first.
