    The food is great and there are so many options. There's a salad bar, and specialty salads that can be made. Also there's global where different foods are made from different countries, for example we had sushi the other day! Also there are many options for hot food such as pasta, chicken, or anything else they make depending on the day. Lastly, there are always sandwich makings out in case the food does not suit your cravings for that day.

    The food is somewhat okay, I prefer to cook on the weekends to avoid tasting similar flavors every other day. It's very repetitive, the meals are, and it's hard not to eat french fries if the food is tasting the same every day.

    Bon Appetit provides the food at the college, and they always have vegetarian/vegan and organic, sustainable options.

    I hear from the dormers that the menu becomes redundant after a while. However, the vending machines are the best I have ever seen. Full lunches and exotic coffees....

    The food is not great and gets old fast. There are always options like salad bar, pasta and making your own sandwiches.

    Okay. The cafe has good and bad days. Its no home-cooked meal by a long shot, but that is most college campuses. Also, we are always begging for better hours.

    The dining is very accommodating to students with special diets. It's great buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinners make sure the students get exactly the kind of meal they want whether the student just wants a bagel, or a pasta dinner, the options are limitless. They are also very considerate of people that are lactose intolerant, vegetarian/vegan which is important for me as a vegetarian.

    The quality of food is definitely better than at other colleges, but there are sometimes really odd options for dinner. Be ready to eat lots of cereal/sandwiches.

    There is not any greek life but if you start one on campus as a new coming student, it could be adopted as a tradition if properly kept up each year.
