    So good. Really, yum. The buffet style dining halls have literally anything and everything you want to eat. They also have chickfila and other mini restaurants.

    Food is supposedly ranked better than most schools, but after a year, it gets old. The menus don't rotate enough, and many employees don't seem to care about their jobs. Many do, however, and that is refreshing.

    To be honest, the food will not blow you away, but students don't come to college to eat now do they? The dining hall hours are pretty accessible, and they generally run from about 7am to midnight, nonstop. Also, there are plenty of meal plan options to choose from whether you want unlimited or only 100 meals the whole semester.

    The dining halls are pretty much gross, but it's a part of the experience. They're trying to get the food to taste better, not much luck so far. Rams is better than Lenoir. I would definitely recommend getting a meal plan just so you can go with friends if not for the quality of the food.

    The food is pretty good compared to other schools I've eaten at (or my friends have eaten at). The dining halls are set up so that all the food is labeled for food allergies and special diets. So, as a vegetarian, this is perfect! I can always tell if I can eat something or not. Additionally, they have a lot of vegetarian and vegan options. They also have gluten free options, but I don't pay as much attention to them so I'm not sure how much of a variety they have of them. If you don't want to get a meal plan or eat in the dining hall (which I really do not recommend as a first year, some of my favorite memories happened over a meal in the dining hall), there are plenty of other places on campus and right off campus. On campus: Chick-fil-a, Subway, a mediterranean deli, an indian restaurant, Starbucks, and a few other little restaurants. If you want to eat off campus, there are a ton of restaurants just one street north of campus. If you want to cook your own food, there's a walmart, whole foods, and a couple of other grocery stores on a bus line from campus.

    lots of tasty options throughout the day and late night, unlimited dining plan is probably more than anyone will use

    It exists. Personally, I am not a part of it, but my roommate is and she loves it. Greeks and non-Greeks definitely hang out and interact.

    It is big enough for you to know that it is there and for there to be frat parties on the weekend but not big enough for you to feel left out if you are not part of it.
