Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Everyone eats at McClurg Dining Hall, which is on central campus. You have quite a few options in the beginning, but as with most cafeteria food, it will eventually get old. The breakfasts are really good, though. Other dining options include The Globe Cafe, Fiesta Grill in Cowan (15 min drive), Stirlings Coffee House, and The Pub, all of which are on campus except Fiesta Grill. The Pub serves snacks such as mozzarella sticks, chicken fingers, and some breakfast food. The Pub is where everyone goes after an awesome party. The Coffee House is great for all your coffee needs as the name implies (it also serves food). However, I cannot comment on the food at the Globe Cafe.

    McClurg is the dining hall. The food is very good but it can suck on weekends. However, there are other restaurants on campus such as the globe and the Pub.

    McClurg is our Amazing Dining Hall with all kinds of food... The home, vegan, Asian, cereal, pizza, dessert, ice cream, salad, fruit and more bars. There's also little restaurants on campus that are affordable.

    While some would argue that the dining hall does not provide fantastic food, I would argue that it is immensely better than the options at many other schools. As with any school, the key is to eat from several different food lines to combine meals. It is possible to eat healthily and I find myself (a non-vegan) eating in the vegan line frequently due to its consistently tasty options.

    McClurg is pretty descent on certain days and nights. They have these special days where they have birthday cake, smoothies, coffee, etc, that are rally exciting.

    They're is no pressure to join Greek life because most students are in Greek life. I recommend Fiji if you plan on coming to Sewanee, but I'm not actually in that fraternity.

    Greek life plays a large role at Sewanee. Roughly 75% of students are involved in a fraternity or sorority. Although this may seem intimidating at first, the fraternities hold events that are open to the entire school on a consistent basis. There is not an ounce of exclusivity in regards to Greek life.

    While more than 70 percent of the student body belongs to a Greek organization, your level of participation is entirely at your discretion.
