Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Every other college kid who comes to our school says our food is our of this world! except for our main dinning hall they are true. Salsaritas can rival Chipotle, crossroads can rival any dinner, and Java Walles may just be better than Starbucks, crazy right!?

    All freshman have to eat at the Grace Watson dining hall. The food at Gracie's is not the greatest quality and lacks variety. Especially for those with dietary restrictions. The dining halls on campus are not the most conscientious of vegetarians, vegans, or people with allergies. There are however stores and markets on campus that sell food that cater to these dietary needs.

    There are a really good amount of dining halls to choose from when grabbing a bite. And they can range in size and quality, from the corner store to the buffet style diner that is Gracie's. However, in my year and a half eating here, I have realized some things get old real quick. So the way I see it, you have to some things you like a stick with those, or change it up to keep things nice and original. (Salsaritas really never gets old though)

    Like any college food it take a little time to get used to it, but over all the main dinning room at RIT, Gracie's, has decent food, but there are better places to go. RIT Brick City Cafe has great, fresh, breakfast and lunch. RIT Sportz Zone which is like a sports bar, Crossroads is another dinning facility on the opposite end of campus from the dorms, Salsaritas is a favorite, and RIT opened a new crepes place which has nutella crepes, a personal favorite!

    Big school means there are lots of options with a wide palate. Food is sometimes a little greasy but if you look hard enough you will find something you are happy with.

    Their cafeteria called Gracie's is a buffet, and the food is usually not very healthy (french fries, soda, pizza, burgers, ice cream served everyday). However, there are other options like a sandwich bar, pasta bar, and they have a grill which varies it's food each day. There is a salad and fruit bar ( although the fruit usually isn't ripe). Other on-campus places to eat are Salsaritas (a Mexican place with delicious quesadillas), Crossroads markets (a better version of Gracie's), Commons (a bit more expensive but great pizza), RITZ Sports Zone, Brick City Cafe (great for breakfast), a couple other places. My favorite place is Salsaritas, but that's located on the opposite side of campus from the dorms so it's a bit far to walk sometimes in the snow.

    Plenty of places to eat and many different choices. Naturally food on campus is more expensive.

    Could care less, they are almost not existent, and Frats and Sororities do not get you any where in life. Co-ops and networking does

    I'm not a part of greek life but it seems to be pretty prosperous on this campus. Not overpowering like in the movies but they are definitely present.

    I am actually in a Fraternity myself here so I can attest to the positivity of Greek Life and the Greek community here. It's probably not the largest, compared to some campuses, but it's another great addition to RIT.

    Can't say much about them, considering I'm not really interested in them. However they do have the annual Mud Tug and have cool events to go to year round like water balloon fights.

    The Greek life is definitely another route to take and is a very campus affiliated one. Joining a frat or sorority is pretty much a guarantee that you will meet all sorts of people on campus. It is also an opportunity to expand your knowledge of the campus itself and the community.
