    There is a wide variety of food to choice from. At Mckinleys you have sandwiches, pasta, mex-american, salads, a grill and these are all made to order. At Brooks there is an endless amount of food with different varieties every day.

    What are the meal plans like? Are they optional?

    Lots of different places that have some decent food. Kitchens are evidently prevalent as well, so if you're a picky eater, just make your own meals! It's a small town type of college, so maybe see about getting friends together to make a kind of club. Have each person make something every certain day or once a week. Lots of good options.

    Dining at Allegheny is average. Brooks, the buffet style dining hall has lots of options. McKinnley's is excellent! It has great food that is cooked to order from pasta to burgers to Mexican. You will find something that you like, and that is healthy no matter where you go. Also, there are kitchens in every dorm so you can cook!

    They have a great food court style set up. Didn't actually get to eat there, but they at least seem to have tons of options. They even appeal to vegans!

    The food is surprisingly good. You can chose to eat in two different places. One is buffet style with the food choices changing all the time, and one is a place where the food choices are constant and you pay by portion. The dining service tries to get most of the food locally when it is in season, and works to create healthy options for those students that are so inclined. The healthy options actually taste good but for when you just need to have your cheese covered nacho goodness, they have you covered as well.

    At first the food tasted alright, but after a few weeks it gets old. There isn't much variety after a while. You get bored real quick. Brooks is buffet style and Mckinleys is like a food court with a pasta section, a grill section with hamburgers and chicken sandwiches, ect., a salad section, a mexican food section, pizza, and a cold sandwhich/sub section. The food is expensive for bad taste.

    Mckinleys dining hall is great, but Brooks is a all you can eat dining hall with alright food. It is something that you have to adjust to when coming from home cooked meals.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    10/10 Recommend Don't expect all the big traditions you see on bigger campuses or in southern schools. Greek life on campus is a tight knit community but it definitely isn't for everyone. I can go on and on about the meaningful bonds and lifelong friendships you make through Greek life here but it's something you have to experience to believe. My sorority has provided me with a strong support group and family to lean on and I know many fraternity brothers that feel the same about their chapter. I definitely recommend students to go through recruitment because even if you don't get a bid, at the end of the process you will have met plenty of new friends regardless of if you're going through for a fraternity or sorority. Greek life is a lot of work though. Don't expect Greek life here to always be all fun and games though.

    The campus is 80% greek. There is no pressure to join for those who are not interested. But the campus is heavily Greek but they stay pretty inclusive to all students.

    I personally won't be part of Greek Life in the near future but it is prevalent on campus. Fraternities and Sororities hold school sponsored events that are enjoyable and safe for all students and there is absolutely no pressure to join.

    Greek Life is a lot of fun! I am just now planning on joining a sorrority. They do alot for the school and community and best of all its another opportunity to make friends and become involved in the college. You can just see how much they have together as they do so many activities! I can not wait to joing Greek Life.

    I'm not a member of Greek life, but they make up either one-third or one-fourth of all students on campus. The sororities don't seem as bad as stereotyping might have you believe. Sororities and fraternities both do lots of fundraising for their specific charities each year. In short, if you wanted to get involved in Greek life, you'll probably enjoy it.
