  • The dorm rooms are pretty big compared to the other schools that I looked at, and they just got all new showers put in the dorms which are really nice!…

  • Wow. Dorm life is a different thing. It sometimes seems like it isn't part of the campus. Because you will have so many friends and associates that are going through…

    Food is okay, but not great. The cafeteria food is from Sodexo and it's pretty much all the same every day. Breakfast sucks, lunch is only good because of Rus, and dinner is mediocre. The Grill is a lot better than the caf, but it's only open limited hours.

    They have an excellent cafeteria that I have had the pleasure of eating in several times. It is mostly buffet style however, the chefs will make items upon request.

    There are many food options for such a small institution.

    The food is hit or miss. Sometimes the cafeteria makes delicious food and sometimes it's repulsive. They try to get creative with food choices but they're usually a flop. I love the food at the grille. It's convenient and tasty. The only problem with both places is that there is hardly any healthy choices for students to make.

    While the Cafeteria isn't always good food you can get some good food at the Grille, they have healthy food and not so healthy food along with smoothies and other extra things to buy.

    The Dining Hall gives a wide variety of all kinds of foods. They offer a salad bar, sandwich bar, international cuisine, home style, and traditional food areas. Some of the food is served bland to account for people with allergies and other needs.

    The food is fantastic! There are two options for eating at VWC: the Grill, where you can get burgers, chicken, Sandella's and smoothies, or the Cafeteria, where you get a buffet of pizza, burgers, salad, entree's and sandwiches/wraps. No matter where you eat, you always leave satisfied.

    Greek life is big here. There are always greek events and greek unity going on here. The greek townhouses are all together so we can live amongst each other. Each greek organization supports the other.

    The Greek Life is extremely friendly with other organizations. No one sorority or fraternity is dominant on campus, and the Panhellenic Council works to bring all the Greek Life organizations together.

    We do not have that many, but the ones we do have are awesome. The members are very close and they always are involved in the things that happen around campus.
