Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    Wittenberg has 3 dining options, the CDR, Post 95, and the Science Center. I am probably not the best person to write a food review because I could be happy eating a rock. But, I think that it is decent food and there is no reason to be eating Ramen Noodles everyday! Some people complain, but it is cafeteria food; it is never going to be perfect. PS. The CDR is a great hangout spot if you enjoy people watching and hanging out with friends. It is also the place to be on visit days. Prospect students = Great food.

    It's college. No dining hall is going to be perfect. Our CDR has good days and bad days, but there's always a salad bar, pizza, or a sandwich line if you don't see any main courses you like. We also have Simply To Go in the science center where you can get a snack or a meal (sandwich/salad, chips/side, drink, and a cookie) if you don't have time to eat between classes. Finally, we have Post 95 and Founders where you can use WittGold to get burgers, wraps, flatbreads, pasta, appetizers, and full-sized pizzas.

    There is the main dining hall, which serves pretty good food for a campus cafeteria, and varies the selection each day. Also there is a cafe named Post 95 that serves really yummy burgers, pasta, wraps, or salads for the price of some WittGold. There is a decent amount of food choices available in the student center.

    There are only 3 options for eating on campus and the cafeteria becomes redundant after a while. The best option is Post 95 but it costs real money, luckily each student get $100 in Witt Gold to pay for it but once that is gone you'll have to pay for it yourself. The other option is Simply-To-Go which is food for students to get in between classes if you cant go to the cafeteria which is very convenient.

    We have a main dining hall and then Post 95 which is like a mini food court. The dining hall takes swipes from your meal plan (one swipe per meal) and with a meal plan you get a given amount of Witt Gold which is what you purchase food at Post with. You can also add any amount of money to your Witt Gold account online. The CDR (the main dining hall) is pretty good. There's always cereal, bagels, salad bar, pizza, and hamburgers along with the four other hot meal lines. There's a deli and a vegetarian option, which I know a lot of people appreciate. There's always dessert too. The only downfall of the CDR is that it closes early so as an athlete getting out of practice all the hot food was always put away by the time I got there at 7:30-8 pm. Post food is amazing. Every line of it. We also have a to-go station at the Science center which is nice so you don't have to walk all the way across campus for lunch if you're in a time crunch.

    The dining hall is very accommodating for special diets and will address anyone who has a concern and try to fix it.

    Greek life is a big thing here, but not the stereotypical types that you think about. All of the greek houses make a point to be very respectful and give back to the community- though don't get me wrong, they have some fun too!

    Right now we have 5 sororities and 6 frats. I think our Greek life is great and brings people together, even those outside of your own chapter.
