Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Well, what can I say. It's school food. It can only get but so good. We have a salad bar, a vegetarian bar, a sandwich bar, a community grill, and a hot food section, which is where the main dinner dish comes from. As mentioned before, beware of omelet night. We have a waffle bar too. We get ice cream, milk, juice, and our desserts range from cake to pie to pudding to other stuff. Lunch, depending on the day, can be themed. By the way, the dining I've been talking about is the main cafeteria, Marina, and it's buffet style, so it's all-you-can-eat. We have a Café in the library, a place called the Hub attached to Marina where you can get Mexican, Asian, or American style (grill) food, and we have a place in the Student Center called Sandella's where you can get flatbreads, rice bowls, smoothies and quesadillas. Next to that is the Knight's Pantry, which is like a corner/grocery store, but with college prices.

    They have upgraded the dining facilities year after year so that is a plus. More variety has been added since the days I attended. The meal plans are adequate and the hours of operation are very reasonable. You will have no excuse to be hungry because there are plenty of options. Make sure you budget your meals. You'd be surprised how quickly they go if you get too carried away.

    You will grow tired of the food options on campus. Most students order out. Papa johns and Dominos is pretty popular. Nino's is a really good local Italian place serving everything from fried chicken to baked ziti to pizza and for dessert there's cheesecake.

    The food at the University of Bridgeport is lovely. The food is my favorite part about the school. There are many food choices, including a vegetarian and a gluten free zone. The dining hall is beautiful and the staff are kind.

    There are a few Greek life at the university. Some plan and do events for the campus, while others are lazy and don't care about the university attending. They raise money by doing house parties.

    AWSOME! I have many friends in sororities and fraternities and the experience seems to be amazing. They are more than a family and always look after each other.
