    There is a pretty good variety of food. It's pretty much impossible to look everywhere in the cafeteria and not find something that catches your eye. The only concern is that some items cost too much and aren't worth it.

    Food is average, normal stuff like sandwiches, salads, wraps, pizza, fries, burgers, chicken sandwiches. Then they have snacks like cookies pretzels, candy, etc. You get what you pay for basically.

    Abington contracts with a private catering service. All foods are fresh, the staff is friendly and of course the meals are delicious. Though it may be a little pricey to eat on a daily basis. The cafeteria is also clean as well, but crowded.

    A great way to get to meet people is common break. Everyone has the same lunch break at either 12:00 or 12:15 pm; all the students sit together, or can even join their professors! What�s the best part? You can take your lunch out by the pond, and sit in the sun. The pond is beautiful, relaxing, and very popular due to its scenery and the mood it provides. The food is delicious, and they have just about anything you could think of- pizza, salads, fries, fruit, wraps, you name it. Breakfast in the morning is convenient, if you are on a tight budget because they prices are a bargain!

    If you want to experience the Greek life, this is NOT the campus for you. We only have one fraternity and one sorority here.
