  • The dorms are fun and Wooster does an excellent job pairing up roommates. They are a little dated and you wont find the suites that you find at larger universities.…

Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Janelle from Wooster, OH
  • Jul-20-2013 I am a current student here

    The campus has 2 different dining halls (Lowry and Kitteredge) along with a sub cart, Mom's (which is basically our own little fast food restaurant), and some legendary Hot Dog cart (I've never seen it, personally). Each option has a wide variety of foods, and there will almost always be one option that sounds good. However, on the occasion that you're not feeling any of those options, the city of Wooster is packed to the brim with pizza, chinese, fast food restaurants, and a plethora of other restaurants ranging from greasy diner to upscale steakhouse.

    The dining was actually not bad when I was there. The dining halls themselves are A LOT nicer now, and so is the food.

    The dining hall is pretty nice, well they both are, we have two. There is a full buffet spread for all meals. I highly recommend not making any decisions based on dining though.

    The dining is actually pretty good. There is a full buffet spread for all three meals; it's pretty nice. There are two dining halls and one is vegetarian. The number of students is being permitted to rise pretty aggressively though, so the lines are LONG if you show up at the wrong time.

    The food plan is alright. There are two dining halls, both of which have a lot of space and are nice halls in general. There's a little campus convenience store that has coffee, tea, snacks, etc. which comes in handy. The staff is generally very nice too.

    The dining hall is fine. Thereâ??s always plenty to eat, and if you use your meal swipes (you get a set number per semester depending on your meal plan) well then you shouldnâ??t have a problem.

    The dining hall is pretty good. It's not much to brag about, but it gets the job done and I'm a pretty low maintenance gal!

    The food is delicious, and the campus is also very vegetarian friendly. It also has a wide range of food plans, to give each student a range that can meet their needs.

    The greeks that I knew had a major inferiority complex because they were local, not national. That made them annoying to be around, but I don't know if that has changed at all or not.

    None of the greeks here are actually national, but a few like to think that they are, so they take themselves way to seriously and it's pretty funny to watch.

    Greek life is either taken way too seriously, or taken very lightly, depending on who you talk to. None of the greeks are national though.

    The greeks on campus are all local chapters, so they are either just really chill and laid back or they take themselves entirely too seriously and strut around with an insufferable inferiority complex.

    The greeks on campus aren't national. It's kind of funny to watch how seriously they take themselves in light of that. Depending on who you talk to you'll either think that greeks here are not abnormal at all or that they're complete jerks, just like everyone else I suppose.

    The greeks are generally either very nice or super-cliquey. It really depends on who exactly you're talking about.

    All the fraternities and sororities are local, so there are no national chapters. Most of them stick together a lot, but I have some friends in a sorority.

    Greeks on campus have the tendency to take themselves a little seriously. There are no national frats or sororities, so they are all local and have kind of an inferiority complex.

    Greeks take themselves way too seriously on campus. All frats and sororities are local, not national, so they all have an an undertone of take me seriously, which is annoying to be around.
