    The caf has delicious food once in a while, but there's a lot of the same. The friendly staff and chef makes up for it though. There is also the bistro where you can start using your meal plan swipes at 7pm on the weekdays and 6:30pm on the weekends if you don't feel like eating in the caf for dinner on some nights. Students can also use their Flex dollars at places like Einstein's (on campus), Dominos, and Subways.

    This is probably one of the greatest things about Millikin. We have GREAT food!! Our chef, Chef Brian, is all about possibilities. There is a variety of options at the buffet style cafeteria. Everything is home cooked, never frozen. It gives students variety, but there's always the comfort food college students know and love. We also have flex, which is similar to a pre-paid food card. It can be used at vending machines, Einsteins Bagels, the Bistro, Domino's, Subway, and other cafe shops on campus.

    Wornick Dining Hall is the one place on campus where you can use meals on your meal plan. They offer a good variety of food, and they offer traditional home-cooked specialties daily in addition to sandwiches, burgers, pizza, and a salad bar. Most vending machines accept Flex Dollars, as do Einstein Bros. Bagels in Shilling Hall, C3-X Convenience Shop in ADM-Scovill Hall, Big Blue Bistro in RTUC, and Subway and Domino's near The Woods Apartments. Other nearby dining options include Hardee's, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Donnie's Homespun Pizza, Jimmie John's, Cherry Berry, and University Dogs. For groceries, there is a CVS, Dollar Tree, and a couple of convenience stores within walking distance and Walmart, Target, and Kroger within 15 minutes by car.

    The food is fairly decent. At the very least it is not awful. The selection just gets boring after awhile.

    The food is good it;s the same sometimes but you can always exchange your meal at the bistro and they have the best food on campus. There are also a lot of places where you can use your meal plan like Domino's and Subway.

    I can say sometimes they have good food to eat but something the food can use a little work. Subway and pizza hut is always good options when you are pulling an all nighter.

    The caf is your only option for breakfast and lunch. For dinner you can either eat in the caf (limited options, questionable quality), or go to the Bistro downstairs in the same building if it's past 7pm (currently a $7.50 limit if you want to use your meal plan; any extra cost goes on flex or is paid separately). You also get flex, which is money on your account you can only spend at certain food places. Currently, the only places you can use your flex are the caf, the Bistro, Domino's Pizza, Subway, and Einstein Bros.

    it's there. It's not for everyone, but everyone I know in it loves it! There's not a lot boys and girls can choose from though. If you're in Greek life here, that's awesome. If you're not, it's not a huge deal at all.

    I love the Greek life at Millikin. I am a part of both social and honor fraternities. The Greek life here is prominent, but not over bearing. Greeks have an average higher GPA than non greeks. They also tend to graduate on time, despite their involvement in many other organizations. The Greeks hold many leadership roles within and outside their own community.

    Greek life is fairly good. There are several fraternities and sororities on campus. All of them are active on campus. I am a member of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and I love it.
