    There are many different places that one can dine in. There are cafeterias, food shops, and coffee shops where one can eat well and purchase food or drinks.

    Eickhoff has great food and an excellent staff, but like any campus food it gets old pretty quick if you do not mix it up. There are not a ton of options for food on campus, so I recommend trying to get into the apartments during junior or senior year, where you have your own stove and cook daily!

    Eick has a lot of options but after a while you get tired of the same thing. That's when you get creative! There's a sushi station, pizza, burgers, omelets, pasta, salad, deli and more all in that one dining hall. There are 4 major dining places on campus and there are 2 cafes.

    TCNJ's dining hall, Eickhoff, is known as being one of the best dining halls in the country. The dining hall has a lot of variety and the food is cooked fresh daily. There are other places to eat on campus that include a late night dining restaurant, two cafes, and another small restaurant.

    I have only been in the dining hall a few times, but they have a great variety and selection. The Lion's Den in the student center is also really good, thats where I get the meals I eat on campus. All of the food workers are very pleasant and nice.

    There is a wide variety of food available. The food offered is better quality than most schools. I only would ask that more of the food available would be healthy such as fresh fruits, and vegetables.

    Average food that you will get bored of after a couple of months. they serve the same thing everyday. expect on wednesdays, because wednesdays are periogi days, which is the best day of the week.

    The dining is not that bad. Unfortunately, it is not your moms cooking, but it also isn't slop. There are better days than others but for the most part it is tolerable.

    The food and variety of food is mediocre at best. There are however, meal plans at TCNJ, and food courts.

    The greek life seems very strong. There are so many different fraternities and sororities. They always have some sort of event or rush banners hanging in the student center, and during the busy lunch times, they kind of all have sections that they sit in. It seems like a large majority of students on campus are involved in greek life.

    Awesome, the greek life leads many strong, determined, motivated individuals into the real world upon graduation. Greek life allows for lifelong friendships and opens job opportunities of all types.

    Greek Life can be a major part of your student life here. Many students are involved with it, including me, but there is also a good percentage that are involved in other activities. Greek life does not have housing on campus, but performs various activities on and off the campus area. However, no one is forced to do any type of activity they don't want too, so if Greek life isn't your thing, you can try something different.
