    we are catered by bon appetite which is currently in the list of leading college food providers. it's cafeteria food, but it's good cafeteria food. i'm also a vegetarian, which could be a potential problem but it's not here at beloit. there are always lots of options for me, which is really nice.

    Food and dining is very small. There is a place called Commons that is under the dorm Chapin. This is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but it is only open for certain times of the day. It is also a buffet, all you can eat. I love how it is a buffet but I don't like how it isn't open all day. Commons as good food. Then there is another place that is in Persons. It is called DKs this is a retail store. It is open all day until 4pm. So you can grab breakfast, lunch and early dinner. DKs has great food. They menu that you can order food or there is food that is premade for a quick grad and run. Those are the really only two places that are on campus that serves food. That is the only down fall.

    There is very little variety in the dining hall and changes for food allergies are slow going. The food, however, is not bad. Just bland.

    Commons has experienced a change recently and depending on who you ask around campus, students either hate it or love it. Food at commons can sometimes be really great and sometimes you may wonder why you decided to eat there at all. Fortunately though their is always something pretty good to eat at least 80% of the time.

    Bon Appetit recently took over food service, and they're doing an amazing job. You can eat pizza, burgers and french fries every single day if you want...but healthy, delicious alternatives are always available, as are options for vegan and vegetarian students, as well as students with food allergies.

    about 20% of students are involved in greek life here at beloit, and it is unlike what you may have seen on movies and tv. we all have to sign a no hazing form, and we don't have a "formal" recruitment (i'm in a sorority). basically recruitment is a series of open houses, picnics, craft nights, barbecues, and other hanging out activities for potential new members to see if they are interested in spending four years hanging out with the people in that particular greek organization. it's a lot more academic, community, and campus focused as well.

    like i said before, go to recruitment events. i was super anti-greek when i came to beloit. hell, while looking at college, i pretty much completely avoided the topic. ended up going to a recruitment event for kd and fell in love with the women. greek life gets a lot of flack at beloit college and we fought really hard to change that. it's hard to remember that a group of people is not defined by one characteristic, that's why it's a goddamn group. everyone is different and looking for something unique in greek life. it's also not a requirement, so you really don't have to do it if that's a big turn off.

    I personally don't like Greek life, but Beloit college doesn't have a very large Greek life. Yes there is Greek but there isn't a lot of them just because Beloit College is a smaller school.

    I'm a sorority girl, and I love Greek life here. All of the Greeks are really interconnected and my sisters are so supportive.

    Not apart of Greek life, but from the friends that I have in it and from what I've heard Beloit Greek life is very welcoming and offers a variety Sors and Frats for the versatile student body.

    Something for everybody here, even if you don't fancy yourself a fraternity or sorority kind of guy/girl. If you love Anime and video games, there is at least one fraternity and sorority that you may want to look in to. Otherwise, the conventional, stereotypical frat life exists in the other organizations on campus. If you're into that.

    There are three fraternities and three sororities on campus, however Greek life still has a rather significant effect on the campus. In short, it is as if private houses were given to cliques of students that seem to feel superior to other cliques of students because of their exclusive privileges. (Most people will form cliques, for example, the sports teams, the Chinese students, FYI groups) Even though this is the overall impression greek life gives, a lot of the people involved are kind, and they tend to be the main sources of good parties on campus.

    Aside from one frat (and one sorority slowly going downhill), all the Greek life on campus is very atypical. If you're looking for TV-quality Greek life, don't go to Beloit; you will be disappointed. It's a great organization to be part of no matter who you are.
