    Eh, it's a cafeteria. It isn't anything special, but cereal, salad, sandwiches, and pizza are always a good fallback option. It's still better than eating fast food every day or being forced to prepare your own food.

    I enjoy the food, the school's cafeteria has a Facebook page that always asks their students what they would like changed or added to the menu.

    The cafe is open at the right times and if you don't like what they have you can go downstairs to the cage and use cardinal points you get at the beginning of the semester.

    We just switched from Sodexo but I really enjoyed the services last year. I am very excited about the new building and coffee shop on campus.

    We just switched food providers, and I have not tried the new food yet, but I hear it is pretty good. My experience last year was that people like to complain about the food for reasons I could not sympathize with: I usually didn't mind the options or quality.

    The food at William Jewell is also very good. They have something there to eat keeping everyone in mind. You will always be able to find something there to eat. Also the school will accommodate to those with special dietary needs, which makes finding a meal easy for those who need it.

    The food is sometimes really amazing and it can also be really bad. That is the best way to put it.

    The caf food leaves much to be desired, but everyone on campus bonds over their distrust of it. The cage food is good, but too much of it will make you feel disgusting (very greasy). The Starperch (the 'perch' that sells Starbucks drinks) is delicious.

    The food at the school isn't the greatest but they do have a fast food restaurant open until midnight and a coffee house with the same hours. The local city square is just a couple blocks away so there's a ton of food down there.

    Greek life is pretty popular here. I'm an independent, but I have many friends who went Greek and loved it. My boyfriend is actually in a fraternity here, and he loves it.

    William Jewell has a great greek life, I hear no complaints at all. Greek housing is gorgeous and all the greek students seem so close. There are many fundraisers throughout the academic year.

    I never thought I'd join a sorority...but it was one of the best decisions that I could have made. I have made some life-long friends and connections through it and learned a lot about philanthropy and charity work, as well as about myself.

    3 Fraternities 4 Sororities These organizations are very involved on campus. Sororities take pride in academic achievement and try to be open to all who want to join.

    The Greek life on the campus is very nice the dorms are nice and also the students involved are very nice. There is absolutely no hazing allowed at William Jewell which is a very good thing because that is what most people are scared of when they thing of Greek life.

    The Greek Life is nothing like you would picture it to be. They are not like State schools. There is never any huge parties or anything. They are more about trying to help students become better citizens and leaders.

    Greek Life at Jewell is outstanding. It's not like at bigger schools; we do not haze our pledges/new members at all. All four sororities live in the same new building, so we all get along very well. The three fraternities have their 'battles,' but they act more like annoying brothers to each other than anything else. Provides wonderful opportunities and very well-loved organizations on campus. We bring a lot of the activities and projects to campus.
