    Over the past three years Shorter has taken what students don't like and made changes.

    They selection is not usually satisfactory, nor is the quality. I do appreciate that it is all you care to eat, but not the looks you get from the staff when you take advantage of that. The price is reasonable for lunch.

    The food is rather good, but there does not seem to be a lot of healthy alternatives.

    The cafeteria food is like any school: sometimes you will enjoy what they are serving, and sometimes you won't. They do, however, always have a variety of choices.

    There are few selections and most of their time is spent gossiping about the other fraternities and sororities.
