    They have lots of choices! I've seen a lot of Vegan options added as well. It helps give you energy to make it through the day.

    Jack Daniels wings and the chicken noodle soup are some of the best things here. We even had lobster night once. The only problem is on the weekends when breakfast is served until 3:15 and half of the dining hall is closed. Food is noticeably better on open house days, but is all around pretty decent.

    Salisbury University houses one of the greatest cafeterias on the East Coast! With 10 different food choices, Commons will give you every food you desire. SU students have enjoyed Lobster dinners, Thanksgiving dinners, and Make Your Own Pizza nights. Along with Commons, Cool Beans and Gulls Nest give students variety when they don't want cafeteria foods.

    Commons has a large variety of food and for the most part, their food is delicious. They even have themed nights for specific types of food in addition to the food they offer everyday and they have vegan options.

    The food here is great! I couldn't ask for better food. It's a definite upgrade from home. There is almost always an option for everybody. They do their best to provide options for vegan/vegetarian students as well. Every night there are homecooked style meals, french fries and chicken nuggets type of food, tacos, pasta, salad, hamburgers, pizza, sandwiches, soup and other unique options. They also serve great desserts every day, too. In addition to commons, there are cafes in many of the main academic buildings for snacks in between classes or meals before or after an awkwardly timed class or for when you just don't feel like going to commons. There is also Gull's Nest which serves pretty decent food (though all unhealthy) like subs, pizza, nachos and wings. It stays open later than commons in case you couldn't make it in time. They also sell things like bags of chips, goldfish, cookies, and even tubs of Ben and Jerry's ice cream all of which you can buy with your Dining Dollars.

    The University has several different fraternities and sororities to join. Interest meetings and events are announced on a daily basis and they have all been very friendly.
