    I'm going out on a limb and assuming the food and dining in the area is pretty great, but I would not know as I haven't been to Glenside before/yet.

    The Dining Hall food can be a little nasty and weird most of the time but it does have it good days. It could be better. The Chat food has always been good, though some food can be over cooked a bit sometimes.

    The food that I had was great. Obviously it wasn't a five star restaurant, but as far as school food goes, it was really good. I ate at the chat.

    For their buffet style food, the food is mostly good, but sometimes bland, for the other places available the food is pretty good. they also have a cafe where they serve coffee from starbucks and things like that,

    The dining hall is not the best, but it has a decent selection and is flexible to special diets.

    There are three different options but only two are covered by the meal plan. The dining hall itself has mediocre food because it is prepared in large quantities but it isn't terrible. The other options are more cafe and fast food like and offer great alternatives.

    We don't have Greek Life at Arcadia and we like it that way! We also don't have a football team so there isn't a lot of hardcore partying or drama.

    The Greek life here is virtually non-existent. There are no sororities or fraternities, so it would be best to stay away if that is what you're looking for.
