    My parents love to point out how spoiled I am food-wise, compared to their colleges. But you will get bored of your options eventually, especially if you only eat the pizza. Take advantage of the other stations, the lines never are as long as they look. And try out the Knoshery, but avoid there rice (they make it to dry). For meal plans try to go for one with more dining dollars. You will not use the dining hall as much as you think and will end up with excess swipes.

    Pretty good food. Only one dining hall so the food could get a little bland but it is pretty high quality for a college campus.

    My friends from other schools who come to visit rave about the food...it's just that good! My only issue (hence the 4) is that there are only 3 places to eat on campus and after 8, the dining hall and Freshens close so you're stuck with GQ.

    Muhlenberg redesigned their dining hall within the past year, and has fantastic food with lots of options provided by Sodexo. There's vegetarian, gluten-free, and kosher options. You can also snack at the General's Quarters (GQ) or the LSC cafe at the gym.

    Wide variety of food with some fresh, local options. Good vegetarian selection as well. The campus dining program focuses on sustainability.

    Muhlenberg has the best dining hall. The food is great. I'll go to breakfast an hour early just so I can study in there. Its like a giant ski lodge. Its so beautiful. And GQ is great for late night snacks or when you're in the mood for something different.

    Overrated, a fraternity got kicked off campus last year for hazing. And most of them still do haze. If you aren't in one they tend to be annoying, especially since they recruit freshmen without pledging them, even though they are not supposed to.

    A few greek fraternities on campus. There is no pressure to join them and they are not obnoxious. A very good balance of them between school life and greek life.

    I'll be honest, it's OK. There are always things to do on the weekends and it's a great way to meet people. There just aren't many to choose from and about 20% of people on campus participate so there is no pressure to be in one!

    About 1/3 of all students at Muhlenberg participate in Greek Life. Students aren't permitted to rush until their sophomore year. Greek life has a presence, but isn't exclusionary.
