    There are 4 places to eat on campus, none of them are healthy. You get chicken or beef everyday at one place. Taco or burrito, at another, Or some randomly thrown together combination of things at Gilman, the main dining hall.

    You'll survive but it won't be pretty. You'll have to work your schedule around the hours the dinning hall is open if you want to use your meal swipe.

    I have eaten at Gilman dining center a few times for various events, and it offers a variety of options for the students.

    I would say this is Marietta College's weakest link. The college and dining program is always open to suggestion and it has gotten a lot better over the course of my four years there but the food is not great and sometimes it can be hard to get over there within operating hours, particularly if you are an athlete and have late practices.

    Izzy's is a great place to catch a quick bite to eat, while the bagel shop in the library is nice for snacking while pulling hours-long study sessions. Gilman's food isn't always up to par though.

    Food is not very good here. there are options, but the options are limited, although they are expanding menus every once in a while.

    Greek life is huge here. I think 50% of students are active in Greek life. There are a few frats and sororities to choose some, just get out and see which one you like.

    Greek life on campus is huge. The Greek community is one that is unique here because it is more of a community rather than just sororities and fraternities. They offer so many different opportunities for philanthropies and bonds of brotherhood and sisterhood. Being a part of a Greek organization has made me a better person and made me feel at home here.

    The fraternities and sororities are respectable on campus, and sincerely make a difference to the college life for the better.
