    They are continually trying to make their food better in every way possible. The staff is very friendly and they will be accommodating if you ask.

    The food is decent at its best. They recently redid much of the cafeteria set-up recently, so there has been some improvement. They now offer a deli station set up very much like a SubWay.

    The caf gets very gross after a while. My main complaint, besides food quality and lack of options, is that it has very inconvenient hours. I have missed many meals due to my work schedule that I will never be compensated for. Coe's alternative dining option, the Pub, has your typical greasy fare. I wish they had fresher and healthier options, as it is a nice place to eat/study if you are in a hurry or don't want to eat with a group.

    There is a wide range of food, and it is easy for vegetarians and vegans to have plenty of options. Occasionally the food will be sub-par, but there's always plenty to eat. Also, the cafeteria staff are very friendly, and some make an effort to learn every student's name.

    Sodexo is a good company with decent food, but it does get old after a while because you live here and eat here at least two meals a day.

    The food is average. While it's not the worst, it's not the best either. Sometimes the food options do not have the best variety.

    Abhorrent. Limited choice, low quality, way too high of a price for what it is. I switched this semester to cooking my own meals entirely, which is not cheap on top of the $4,400 meal plan and is inconvenient, considering there is 1 small kitchen for 240 people in my building. Also, the school requires you buy a meal plan until you get into an apartment (maybe junior year, most likely senior year).

    Everyone complains about the food, but that is mostly due to a lack of variety. The food is reasonably good, and there have been some efforts recently to ensure that there is a greater variety available for students. If you really want to know what it's like, visit when there isn't anything planned for prospective students.

    Sororities at Coe are not the stereotypical cliquey groups that you often see in movies. They are here to offer services to the community.

    I am apart of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority at Coe College and it is the best decision I have ever made. I think Greek Life at Coe is the shining star of the community. Greek life enhances me everyday providing me with leadership skills, social skills, and philanthropic service to name a few. People involved in Greek Life at Coe College tend to have a higher GPA across campus and constantly give back to the Cedar Rapids community. I would highly recommend at least trying it out, there is an organization for everyone at Coe.

    Decent. Most organizations are based on cliques within the middle-school-like community of Coe, but there are some with better reputations.

    Greek Life is alive and well at Coe. I went through formal recruitment for sororities this year, and while I decided not to join any of the sororities, it was still a great experience. It's an awesome way to meet people and I would recommend that all new students go through rush.

    I don't know what it means by Greek Life. If it's about Sororities and Fraternities I'm not joining any of those.

    There are some lively frats and sororities on campus, but they and the rest of the campus are never at odds. In fact, Greek Houses often hold cookouts for the rest of the school, and host other fun events.

    I love Greek Life at Coe. I'm a member of AOII and the girls are so amazing. I really enjoy being involved in the community and being seen as a positive role model. I also love that all the sororities and fraternities get along well and have a lot of functions together.
