    The food is the worst. I hate that they do not offer a meal plan. If they did, I wouldn't get one. It's never cooked and taste like food. We got new equipment but the food has gotten horrible.

    The food is quite good, and has a wide variety. I have never heard of anyone getting food poisoning -- a common matter at some other college cafeterias I'm familiar with. Their cookies are especially good -- if they haven't been over baked, which they sometimes are. Once the cookies were not out, and I asked for them. The staff brought me a pile of hot, fresh-out-of-the-oven ones! The cafeteria is very attractive. There is a Starbuck's also, which is widely patronized.

    The food is really good since the new campus center has been built. There are plenty of places to eat and a wide variety of food to choose from.

    The new student center is incredible. Although the way that the cafeteria is set up is a little off, they provide great food and a great atmosphere.

    The food is pretty good most of the time and occasionally quite delicious. Maybe it's just because i'm a breakfast person, but that seems to be the most reliable meal to find good food. After breakfast is over they serve pizza all day. So if all else fails, you can live on pizza. There are a ton of off-campus choices though, many of which are within walking distance, including a grocery store.

    OU's tuition includes your meal plan, so college dining is made easy.

    Not many nutritional or fresh options. Prepare to do a lot of your own grocery shopping, or else eating out a lot.

  • Dec-05-2012 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I did not really get to fully experience the food and dining, but everything they did provide did taste good. I'm jsut not sure if the school catered it or if they paid someone to do it.

    Not being into Greek life, I can't judge it, but the Director of Greek Affairs is a really nice guy. There are a large number of fraternities and sororities available, and every student, even those who don't belong to one, has a decided opinion as to which are cool and which are not. Usually it has to do with which ones your friends (and occasionally foes) belong to.

    There are only a handful of Greek houses and all of them are very small. There's like no more than 30 people in each house, tops. They throw very few parties and aren't very lively or active on campus generally.

    There are a a few sororities and fraternities on campus. In general, they get along and interact with each other. Greek Row is usually the place to be on a weekend night.

    Over half of the students on campus are in a fraternity or sorority. The brothers and sisters on campus take great pride in which fraternity or sorority they belong to, and over all, the greek atmosphere is a very positive one.

    Our Greek Life is growing and thriving. This year saw the addition of two new Greek organizations to our campus. While our Greeks are active and involved, Oglethorpe is a school where you can thrive even if you do not go Greek.
