    Food is actually decently good for being from the dining halls. The food is prepared in site and sometimes ingredients from the on campus garden is used to make some if the dishes (kale soup). Also would recommend smith dining hall, they have great sandwiches!

    We have a large dining hall and several smaller ones. I really like the smaller ones since they have better food and are more intimate, cozy settings. We also have a vegetarian dining hall, which I love. The food here is definitely good, but it gets old.

    There are five dining halls on campus and they provide tasty food almost everyday. Sometimes the meals are lacking in healthy options but on most occasions this is not a problem.

    Our dining halls are Harris (buffet style), Freeman (vegan/vegetarian), J.A.(Breakfast), Smith (cafe-style). They all feature fresh, organic, and sustainable foods from a variety of cultures. Also, unlimited salad bar and Sundae Sunday is a great treat.

    There is no Greek life. I am happy with this, but if you want it, go elsewhere.
