  • Reeves Hall (most equine students live on the 3rd floor of Reeves) is quite old. The ventilation isn't that great, the painting is peeling off and the whole buildings looks…

    My personal preference is for home cooked food, but the cafeteria has a huge number of choices and there is always something to eat. The salad bar is enormous and even if you miss certain meal times you're still able to get burgers and fries at the grill. The menu changes every day so there's always something new to try and there are frequent specials at lunch.

    I only got to eat breakfast there (which tasted good) but there are a variety of healthy (and non-healthy) dining options. There is also a small cafe at the equine center, but choice is very limited. Breakfast isn't served on week-ends at Centenary

    The dining hall makes many students sick - and a surprising amount of students opt out of eating there all together. There are many suspicions that the cooking oil does not get changed, which is where everyone's food poisoning comes from. The dining hall is also run and owned by a separate, private, entity - and is overpriced for even the biggest meal plan possible - which is less than twenty meals a week.

    The food varies in the cafeteria. Some days they have decent food and other days; not so much. On the weekend, it is not the best at all.

    I have not dine at Centenary College as I bring my own food. I take evening classes for my degree since I work eight hours a day.

    The food is okay, some days are better than others. It does get boring after a while because they usually serve somewhat the same types of things.

    The meals vary greatly from Italian to Chinese cuisine. There's is a salad bar complete with every topping including tofu for the vegetarians. Everything is served fresh as in that day. There is a breakfast section with muffins, bagels, cereal (gluten free if you prefer) and a fridge fully stocked You can even make your own waffles, omelets, etc.

    The sorority on campus puts off the image saying they are each unique and accepting, however they are not. Some, not all of the girls are extremely nasty. Its just a click.. I never see them do much. Its great to have a sorority on campus however, be nicer perhaps? I am surprised people pledge considering the things they do during pledging from what I have heard.
