Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Switch up where you eat at! If you eat at the C4C (main dining hall) all the time, no matter how great the food is the first month, you're gonna get sick of it. Some residence halls have their own dining centers, which anyone can go in to eat at. Libby has some of the best breakfast (can you say giant waffles!) and Sewall serves different dinners every night Monday-Friday. Plus the grab-n-gos are great ways to stock up on snacks if you have extra meals before the new meal week starts, or if you're craving a big burger (Farrand custom makes those, although I'm partial to pulled-pork-Wednesdays).

    C4C is massive and has the options you could ever imagine, as well as organic/local options within Farrand with made to order burgers.

    They have a ton of dining options- and they are incredibly detail oriented, meaning if there is peanuts, milk, soy, or any other allergen in a food- you will know it. There is also many locations and options on how to pay for food.

    The amount of options here are astounding. However, like anything, by second semester it can get a little grating. As long as you're willing to step outside your food comfort zone, you'll always find something worth your time.

    The dining halls at this campus are amazing! Everyone gets sick of the food once in a while, but there are four dining halls, and most of them are really great! There is always a variety of food available from Italian, to Persian, to American, to Latin, and the dining halls are always clean! There are also stations to get food to go, called grab and goes, that are also really good.

    Greek life isn't for everyone. If you're on the fence about participating, go ahead and rush! It's a good way to learn if you'll have the time commitment and if you'll enjoy the atmosphere. Even if a sorority/fraternity bids for you, you don't have to accept if you don't want to. You could just enjoy the rush as a way to meet people and test the waters for a week.

    It's not very popular, but some great people are involved. Many of the greeks tend to think they are better than everyone else and obsess over frat life.

    They say it's not a huge part of life but you will certainly feel its effects your freshman year. Greek Life is inherently loud so you'll see it and here it. After that, it can take a back burner, and the pressure to join isn't overwhelming.

    Meh. I have heard nothing but trash talk from every sorority girl I've met here.

    I'm not part of the Greek Life here but as far as I have heard it's a great way to meet people and get involved. Greek houses are always hosting fun activities for everyone too.
