Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I was here for the old food, and now the new dining food. The old way was much better, especially since I had classes during lunch and could have a take out box. Now I can't eat my lunch because I don't have time, and they won't allow me to have a take out. It's pretty silly and not good for students to not have easy access to food when they need it. Not everyone can sit in a lunchroom each day.

    This nursing school is actually attached to a hospital, so we can enjoy the cafeteria every day if we'd like, and luckily, its great food with a wide variety (Italian, mexican, salads, homestyle) at a great price.

    Food is pretty good. There is normally something for everyone, but ocassionally there might be a time when the food isn't very good.

    Baker is connected to the hospital, and so you can go to one of several locations in the hospital (cafe, snack shop, cafeterias) to purchase your meals. Most students bring their own food from home.

    Baker will be undergoing student union renovation in the summer 2013 which included the renovation of our old fashioned cafeteria. It is transforming into a modern day cafeteria with stations and booths for common tasty foods with regular updated menu. In addition to that a new sort of coffee shop with new menus is going to be opened. Baker is going to give even more pleasant dining experience as compared to now.

    Small town with maybe 5 options to choose from. If you have transportation then you can travel 20 minutes to find many other choices.

    The cafeteria is a buffet with anything from the food they prepare to cereal to pizza to a salad bar to a sandwich bar. If you do not like what they have prepared for the hot meal then you have plenty of other options.

    Almost 80% of people at Baker are involved in Greek Life. I am not a part of it because I do not have the time for it.

    As I was a member of the Greek life (before my chapter was removed from campus), the experience was fantastic. There were so many fun and thrilling experiences with the Greek life.

    Greek life is a big part of Baker, but not the only part. Students that are not part of Greek life are actively involved in other organizations as well; no one feels left out.

    For decades, the Baker Greek community has been the most engaged group on campus, making a difference both in the classroom and the community. Sorority and fraternity members consistently perform well in the classroom, and the strong personal bonds provide them with an excellent network when they start their careers.
