    Our dining hall has won various awards for their service and dishes provided to students. Many visitors are surprised at how wonderful our dining hall staff is and how great the college food tastes! There are always alternative meals and options for students who are within a strict diet or are restricted to specific foods. Every meal is different and each meal time has more than 7 stations of food!

    The food in the dining hall is alright. Sometimes, the dining hall can be a hit and miss experience, but they always have pizza. Java George, Martha's and Mondo's are all great! Whether one is looking for a muffin, coffee, a quesadilla or a sub.

    The dining hall is better than most colleges! There is always a wide variety of choices, but if they do not sound appetizing to you, there is always salad, pizza, and sandwiches!

    Honestly, the food isn't that bad. There are some great nights of cooking and you'll end of knowing the staff by name. Try a Cafe Mocha from Java George!

    The school could improve its food offerings. Since the town of Chestertown is small, local restaurants offer student discounts so that is good.

    Washington College has Greek life but maybe not as big as in larger universities. The organizations offer many opportunities within their networks.

    There are many options for Greek Life, for both boys and girls. All play a critical role in the school, holding fundraisers, decorating the campus, and organizing events like the blood drive. They are an integral part of the campus.

    There are 3 sororities and 4 fraternities that treat each other and everyone else like family. They do a great job of raising money for their philanthropy, and they always have fun activities going on.

    There are only three sororities and five fraternities. Greek life is only about 36 percent of the campus. However, most sisters and brothers are involved in many other clubs and activities which makes it so great. I recommend that everyone rushes!

    Greek life is only a small portion of campus life, but for anyone looking for a special bond with a close knit group of people, Greek is the way to go. Greek life is also responsible for a large number of on-campus activities open to all students.
