    95% of the time, we're eating chicken products. Fried ckicken, baked chicken, chicken nuggets, chicken strips, chicken-on-a-stick, etc.

    Excellent, more than adequate dining facilities. When I have the privilege to eat in the cafeteria they always have more than enough and a divers selection. The cost is reasonable for off-campus students free to on-campus students or included in their housing package.

    The food is cooked and nothing is left overnight. Everything is cooked the day of ensuring freshness of fruit and meat. If there's something you want to recommend, the cooks don't mind at all hearing what you would want to eat. They actually have a comment box as soon as you walk into the cafeteria and it's up to you whether you want to comment or not.

    The food here at Rust is not to die for. They have the same food in there every week. However, the food do not be nasty, its just that everyone get tired of eating the same thing every week.

    Because Rust College is a HBCU, it has the typical greek organizations. The subject of The Divine Nine is a favorite among the student body. Our Greeks make EVERY party and event on campus their own and usually provide unique opportunities for students to come out and enjoy themselves.
