    The new caf is pretty sweet and the food is a definite improvement as well. Being a vegetarian who's stomach unfortunately doesn't take a liking to dairy products the options are still pretty good everyday. The hummus and vegan pizza are pretty good.

    It's good for cafeteria food, but it gets old very soon. They serve pretty much the same thing every day. Way overpriced if you don't have a mealplan, and at some points during the day they don't have a full menu.

    Berklee has a special food plan. With this plan you can buy food at several places. The food is good and affordable.

    We recently built a new cafeteria in the new building that is exquisite. The architecture is beautiful and inviting. It is a great place just to relax. The food is all you can eat buffet style with multiple options. Berklee really caters to your needs with delicious menus that change everyday.

    The food provided is not worth paying for. Most people spend time in and around the campus to hangout and jam anyway.

    Everyone says that the food and dining is great, but I am a vegetarian so I'd have to check it out.

    Berklee does not have any Greek houses, however Boston has over ninety colleges in the Boston-Cambridge area and there are many Greek universities. It is great to make friends from other universities and live vicariously through their Greek activities.
