    One main dining hall buffet style. There are grab n go options available at DanteĆ¢??s den and Leo cafe. Cafe 1853 is a good place to study and order food which is brought out to your table.

    While the food on campus has a high diversity factor, it generally isn't that great. The main dining hall isn't very large and it sometimes has trouble handling the influx of students coming in for lunch or dinner. On some, rare days, the food is absolutely spectacular, but on other days the general consensus is less than appealing. The overall dining experience is relatively clean, though. It is better to sometimes order out for dinner on many nights. It is somewhat common for an entire floor in the dorms to order out collectively on some nights. The meal plan for Manhattan College is considerably inflexible and expensive, despite offering an unlimited meals option; it doesn't have a good bang-for-buck ratio. The on campus dining is, however, good for a small, quick snack a few times per day.

    Average college food. 4 dining halls. Hot meals, salad bar, pizza, sushi, gluten free, allergen free, coffee/tea station, tex-mex, soft serve machine, etc. All the food your stomach desires! There is a Starbucks on campus as well as a sit down restaurant that serves higher class dining hall food. Also a small school grocery store with cereal, granola bars, candy, Gatorade, milk, juice, ice cream, etc.

    There are a couple sororities and one fraternity. The sorority that my friends wanted me to join was the Alpha Sigma Phi. They participate in a lot of events and make people feel like there is a warmer atmosphere on campus. They bring colleges together since each college has greek groups that want to meet other greek groups at events.
