Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    There are several places to eat on campus including taco bell, Alfies, the terrace, and 10 elm (pizza hut, and the market). The food is about standard sometimes it's really good sometimes it's just alright. The specials at Alfies or in 10 elm are usually the way to go. They do sell food at the campus coffee and smoothie place but it's mostly just soup and sandwiches. Don't expect anything fancy we are a school in the middle of nowhere and if you want better eating make sure you get CSA or are ready to pay out of pocket for some of the restaurants in town. Nana's is one of the best and healthiest.

    Only good place is called TimberlineZ but it's completely out of the way unless you live in the Mackenzie complex. The rest of the food is very iffy or horrible, unless it's an open house.

    the food options are not the best and there aren't many healthy options if you're a healthy eater. there are some places on main street that have good food but you can't use meal swipes there. getting a crockpot and utilizing your dorm's kitchen is often the best option if you can cook.

    The Food is not the greatest but there are lots of options and is always getting better. There is dinning where all you can eat, fast food like taco bell and friendly's.

    Alfred is great for food because they have a buffet dining hall as well as Taco Bell and Friendly's options. The other great thing about Alfred is that there are various sub shops in the town that will take your meal plans so that you can eat outside of the school cafeteria as well.

    The food is okay. Be sure to watch how much you eat because the Terrace dining is a buffet setup. I packed on 25 pounds my first year and just got back down to 113 in my second year. You'll start to get sick of the food after awhile.

    I’m Sophomore and a brother of Kappa Sigma Epsilon Fraternity. I can confidently say that joining Greek life is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Not only do you become apart of a great group of people who’s intentions are for you to become the best version of yourself but it also give you a chance to network for opportunities after college.

    i am not involved in greek life but i have a lot of friends that are. it seems to be a great experience, allows you to make life long friends, and participate in many community service opportunities.

    Greek life on Alfred State campus is not great in my opinion because they do not offer more then local fraternity or sonority.

    I was not a part of Greek Life, but I have several friends who are. Greek Life here is, for the most part, very respectable. They have required study hours in the library, they handle issues within the Greek Life Community as needed, and they do various acts of civic engagement (which is a higher level of community service). The sisters/brothers I have encountered are very friendly and typically don't say anything bad about the other fraternities/sororities. Also, their pledging is about becoming a better person, not forcing them to do dangerous things.
