    The dining food was not terrible, but I don’t miss it. The food youcould but with your dining dollars was amazing and definitely attributes to the freshman 15.

    There is food everywhere, so the students do not have to travel far to eat. Williams dining hall is known for its variety of ice cream while Geisert dining hall is known for its breakfast and variety of foods. The student center has an amazing salad bar and Chick Fil A, and Center Court is the place to be if the students just want a burger and fries.

    The food in the dining hall is typical college food. There are many options in terms of a salad bar, sandwich bar, pizza, two hot entrees, one healthy hot entree, desserts, and whatever the chef makes but, many of the same meals are rotated through often. We have two dinning halls. Center court which is sandwiches and hamburgers. Student center has a pasta station, salad station, Moe's, and Chick-fil- a. Our gym also has a smoothie and bagel stand. Our Student Center also has the P.O.D which is like a mini grocery store that has chips, cereal, bars, etc. The way our meal and dinning dollars work is often hard on many students because people prefer the other dinning locations instead of the halls. You can get 9 hall meals a week, 120 for the semester, or an unlimited amount of swipes. Then depending on that you get around $750-$900 dinning dollars that you can use at the other locations like the Student Center. On top of that you get Quick Cash that you can use at either location and even at some local restaurants and stores near campus like Avanties and CVS.

    When I visited there was plenty of food to eat. The hardest part is going to be stopping myself from eating too much.

    I really like how you can use your Bradley Bucks to eat at other places other than the cafeteria. The food plans are pretty good.

    The food isn't terrible. It's obviously not a fine dining experience though. As a vegetarian I am a tad disappointed with the options that I have. My main problem is with the options you have for meal plans. The only meal plans available cost 2000 dollars. I am 5'1 and 110 pounds, I do not eat 2000 dollars worth of food. If you do, it's a great deal! I do not.

    There are so many great options! Student Center is open late, so you can always get a midnight snack! I also love that the dining center menus are posted online so you can decide where to go.

    There was plenty of close access to campus dining facilities, but most were closed since I visited in the summer.

    They say it’s about 33\% of student join, I’d say it’s more like 60\%. Seems as though everyone is in a sorority or fraternity. So if you hate that culture, you may not like it here.

    Greek life is very prominent on campus. There are plenty of fundraisers that the sororities and fraternities have, and it makes just a regular day really fun, For example, one fraternity had a pie throwing contest to raise money.

    Greek life is fairly big here, but you can still find plenty of people who don't take part in it (like me).

    Greek life is huge! But it isn't so huge that you should feel pressured to join it. Everyone gets along with each other for the most part, Greek or not, but I highly recommend rushing. You meet so many great people that way!
