Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Food is RMU's greatest weakness. There are four different places to get food: the PNC Colonial Café, RoMo's, Yorktown, and Wheatley. The Caf has a lot of different stations that range from decent to excellent. There are some good, healthy options that are new this year! RoMo's is a standard sub shop/convenience store. The sandwiches and salads are good, and there are nice to-go options. Yorktown is rough. The food is pretty expensive and greasy. Wheatley has nice specials, but is only open during the week. Weekend hours for dining aren't the best, especially if you stay on campus. It can be easy to get tired of, as well. Overall, the food is good enough, but certainly could be improved.

    The food smelled and looked amazing while I was walking through my tour, and there were many options.

    The food is pretty great here with a selection of 4 different cafe's and such. There is a lot of variety because the menu changes every single meal, every single day in the main cafe! Wheatley has wonderful chef's specials daily, for lunch and dinner. The cost, however, is a little high. When you have a meal plan, though, it shouldn't be a problem.

    The food Robert Morris is good. I can't complain too much. You have some home cooking, pizza, healthy food, sandwiches, burgers, soup, salad bar, and a little corner store. They also have this pub like place at Yorktown which is off campus but it is a part of the school. It kind of hassle to get there.

    I never tried the food until the day classes started, and was told that it was bland and not good at all. I honestly have no idea what those people are talking about. The food is great, I love it. There's always so many options to choose from and I haven't had anything that's been bad. We have a cafe that changes constantly, but there's a grill style part that offers burger, chicken tenders, fries, etc and my personal favorite, Freshens, which offers crepes, frozen yogurt, a bakery, etc is available every day. There's a past station, salad bar, different soup, pizza place, and one that's catered by Parkhurst (something like Eat n' Park's catering company?). There's also Romo's which is like a convenient store with a gourmet Subway, another salad bar, and a mini coffee shop/bakery. Then in one of the classroom buildings there's a Starbucks. (: There's also a lot of restaurants on the street of RMU so you have options.

    There is a variety of food at all dining areas on campus. The food is in my opinion rated between average and above average. The dining staff is always active and friendly to the student life.

    Greek life is pretty prominent on campus, and they truly rise above all stereotypes. People in fraternities and sororities are incredibly kind and welcoming.

    Greek Life is a big thing at our school. We have several frats and sororities. Haze Free. They run most of the events at our school and the people that are in them seem to have a blast.

    Greek life is great on campus. All of the Fraternities and Sororities interact with each others and generally get along well. All keep great standards and are community service based. Definitely are a great organization to look into even if at first you have no interest in them.

    Greek life isn't that great. It's like a bunch of high school students. They all have their cliques within their group and do not seem like a real sisterhood/brotherhood.

    I happen to be apart of this on campus. We have about 6 fraternities on campus and 4 sororities. I am in Phi Sigma Kappa, and I love every minute of it. Best decision I made other than choosing Robert Morris University to further my education. Unlike some colleges and universities Bobby Mo does not have Fraternity Houses or Sorority Houses. The campus makes this up to us by giving us suites which has our letter painted on the walls.

    There are about 10 (total) social fraternities and sororities on campus. Some groups are more prominent in campus activities, but they are all involved. In addition to the social fraternities, there is also a chapter for both the national band and theater honors fraternities on campus, but they do not participate in most RMU Greek Life activities.

    Greek life is big on campus and students can join their freshman year. I am not involved in greek life so I really don't know much.
