    It is great, they have several places to get food and they have Sweet Cash which is like a card that you and/or your parents can deposit money to use for food.

    The food was AMAZING. Since it's a small school, they can afford to make high-quality food. My friend's dad is the guy in charge of University of Richmond's dining hall and he even said the food was amazing.

    Food is usually pretty terrible and inedible. Don't be fooled. When there are prospective weekends and other such events on campus, they prepare the food EXPONENTIALLY better to try to trick you that the food is better than it actually is on a daily basis. The dining hall hours are also pretty awful considering they are only open for a couple hours a day. If you miss dining hall hours, tough luck if you don't have a car. The closest city with decent fast food is about 30 minutes away. Also, those fast food places close around 9 pm so that's also lame. There is a bistro on campus that you can eat at 3 times a week for free, but that food gets old. It's pretty good though.

    It's college food. It's not the best food you've ever had, but it's definitely not the worst. I've been on a lot of college campuses and would have to say we have some of the best. The dining hall is very accommodating of allergies and dietary needs, however, and we do have an entire vegetarian station. Not to mention, we do have fresh made-to-order eggs every morning and made-to-order pancakes on the weekends.

    Food can be ok. They can not add any flavoring (such as spices) to the food due to people with food allergies.

    Its just okay, some nights are better than others. They are pretty good about catering to all different sorts of dietary restrictions.

    There is no greek life, however there are Tap Clubs. These are a very unique aspect to this school and those who are involved in tap clubs are very proud of their status.

    We do not have Greek Life, but we do have Tap Clubs! Tap clubs are student interest-based organizations on campus that each have a rival. We have 11 clubs total--obviously number 11 is still waiting on a rival! Some of my favorite rivalries: Sweet Tones and Ear Phones (Sweet Tones can sing, Ear Phones are just plain loud!), Paint 'N' Patches and Ain'ts 'N' Asses (PnP enjoys theatre, AnA enjoys... comedic skits resembling theatre), Taps on Toes and Falls on Nose (TNT can dance, FON falls on their noses to help others).

    Even though we don't have Sororities, we have Tap Clubs. Which is basically the same thing! Each club has rivals, and everything!

    Sweet Briar does not have any sororities because the campus community is small its like being in a sorority anyway!

    Although Sweet Briar doesn't have Greek Life, Tap Clubs replace sororities on campus. If you're lucky enough to be tapped into one of these clubs, you'll experience a sense of sisterhood unlike any other.

    Sweet Briar does not have Greek Life, however it does have Tap Clubs, which basically is the same thing with a different name. The Tap Clubs range from dancing and singing, to the funniest and the clumsiest. Most of them are very selective and while for the more traditional ones you have to audition, some of them you simply have to be able to stand out from the crowd and they pick you.
