    The dining is OK. Stay away form the is usually not the best place to eat, but there are 2 other places on campus that have great food. Food is kind of expensive, though. Its unreasonably priced in my opinion.

    Depending upon what you like to eat/drink, there are 3 different places that one can eat on campus with their meal plan. Boomer's contains fast food like quesidilla's, burgers, salads, fries, etc. The Beanery is your typical coffee and pastry/bagel/breakfast sandwich place. And the last place you can eat is the cafeteria which is similar to all colleges.

    The cafeteria food isn't the best, but the Beanary is a great option for breakfast and lunch. Boomers offers students an alternative dinner spot as well. The fact that these two places offer meal replacements comes in very handy.

    Greek Life is very big in Bethany as there is not much to do. We have 3 sororities: Alpha Xi Delta, Phi Mu, and Zeta Tau Alpha. We have 5 active fraternities: Alpha Sigma Phi, Beta Theta Pi, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Kappa Tau, and Sigma Nu.

    Greek Life is important here at BC, however, there is a negative stigma that is displayed through the unnecessary rivalry among the houses.

    Greek life is very important on this campus. The majority of students are involved in Greek life and therefore it is an excellent opportunity to meet people. However, there is no requirement that an individual has to join and many students don't judge based on one's Greek involvement.

    About 50% of students on Bethany College's campus is greek affiliated. Bethany has 3 sorority chapters, and 5 fraternity chapters. Bethany College is also the founding location for the Delta Tau Delta chapter. All sororities are on campus, while only 3 fraternities are on campus, with the rest located in town. The Greek Life plays just as big of a role in the college as the independates because of the greek to independate ration of 1:1.
