  • Compared to some dorms at other places, Misericordia dorms are really nice. The only problem is space. Misericordia is a small school and they seem to be accepting…

    The food is not bad. I would definitely suggest to get a lot of Cougar Points because that is a nice alternative to the cafeteria.

    Metz dining hall doesn't offer the most delicious or healthiest of options. You just have to adjust and see what you like and go from there. The possibilities are endless!

    The Den and the Intermetzo Cafe are amazing! The dinning hall actually has pretty decent dinners as well! Just don't go for breakfast!

    The dining hall is open only certain hours, but there is a great variety. Of course there are days when the cafeteria is a flop, but there are other locations around campus that allow for a variety of food at different hours.

    Misericordia does not have a huge selection, but they do make up for it in different ways. First, it's always all you can eat. Second, meal points keep it easy to plan how much you will spend on food in a semester. Third, if you have any dietary issues that need to be addressed, they will work with you on them. Last, the staff is always friendly.

    Even though it is dining hall food and it is not always the best, it has gotten much better over the past few years. The students sat down with Mets, our food supplier, and told them we would like better food and they listened. Along with the dining hall there is also the Cougar's Den which sells made to order food such as sandwiches, pizzas, and chicken fingers.

    Greek life does not exist on this campus. We are a catholic university.
