    You definately have to aclimate to the food at college; its so much different than what im used too, so when im gone for a while, and then come back, my stomach needs adjusting to it.

    The food on the campus is both healthy and there are a wide variety of options. There are vegetarian options and there is also an ice cream bar. The staff at the dining halls are very nice and ask you how you are doing when getting your food. The main dining hall is a buffet style while the separate hall is more of a pick up and go style. The food is good and you never run out of options.

    There is only one dining hall on campus that is on your meal plan, then there is a dinning area in the main campus center. They take money, but you get some on your meal plan. There are plenty of options, it might be hard to adjust to the food, but it's not terrible.

    Although I do not invest in a meal plan, there are two cafeterias on campus that seem to offer sufficient meals, along with a convenience store. My favorite, however, is the two different Tim Hortans locations that are always filled with students looking for coffee in between classes. There are also some excellent restaurants near the campus, including St. A's Pizzeria.

    Clet and Lower Level Gallagher have great food. Chefs make your food right in front of you! The staff is so cordial, and always have smiles. Oh, and shouldn't forget to mention Clet is an all you can eat buffet!

    There are two sororities and two fraternities on campus. Each are very different from each other. Two of which have a house. You can meet a lot of great people this way.

    We have several different opportunities for both men and women to get involved in sorority life. It is a great chance to engage in fun activities and meet new people.

    There are a couple sororities (Alpha Sigma Alpha and Phi Sigma Sigma) and fraternities (Delta Chi Epsilon and Tau Kappa Epsilon) on campus. They are heavily focused on the organizations they support and community service.

    Terrible. One fraternity and one sorority. Neither of them are allowed to live off-campus. Purely academic.
