    The food is excellent. We have a decent range of food in campus not just for the student that live here, but also affordable meals for commuters.

    From my personal experience, the food during my first semester was horrible but then they improved the next semester. Oh and they have now open a new dining hall uphill so that is less stress for individuals who will be living uphill.

    The food started off great but never changed. For the most part it was the same thing everyday: pizza, chicken patties or hamburgers, fries, and wraps. The salad bars for most of the week had rotten salads but when they changed it the salad was good. The most exciting part of the dining experience was brunch on Sundays. It was AMAZING!!! They did have random cultural days where the chef made food but it wasn't often.

    I cannot rate this section properly because I did not dine at CCSU. I brought my own food or ate at home because I was a commuter student.

    There are many places that sell food on the campus. Since the campus is quite small, it is not very difficult to grab something to eat. Also, the Blue Chip gives you a discount for the food there. Unfortunately, many people have reported they do not like the food there at all; however, they get used to it eventually.

    The food is okay but can be better, sometimes I feel like I am eating the same things everyday. On the bright side there is a plaza right across the street with a Froyo World, Dominos, Dunkin Donuts, Subways, and more!

    There's a chinese place in walking distance that has great lunch deals/food. Also the meal hall tends to be accomdating if you have any special requests. Breakfast is awesome if you're a morning person.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life is not overly large at Central, but they are very apparent. The fraternities hold various events on campus and involve students in their events. While the sororities are apparent they prefer to take a more classy approach and give back to the community.

    There are different fraternities and sororities but CCSU does not allow Greek houses. The good part of that is there is no limit as to how many people can be in the fraternity or sorority. They do a lot of fundraising around campus and they do require a fee to be a part of them. But that fee goes back to you in clothing and other things.

    There is a fraternity and sorority at CCSU who actively try to recruit interested students.

    None really, there is sorority's you can join but it's more of a club. The people don't live together in a house or anything, they just meet every week and host occasionally events.
