    The Caf food is fairly delicious. There is a great variety to choose from, ranging from healthy to international foods. It isn't always consistent in having great dishes, but overall there are always good food. DBU also has several restaurants on campus, including Chick-Fil-A, Cocina Mercado, Papa John's, Smoothie Oasis, Starbucks, and Daily Bread Bistro. DBU also has a General Store, which provides students an opportunity to but essential things and food/snacks.

    There are some yummy places to eat on campus! We have a Papa Johns, a smoothie place, CHIC-FIL-A, Starbucks, and a nice bistro that has sandwhiches and paninis. Sadly for me, I can't eat any of that since my body will reject it, which usually ends with me curled up in a corner crying because I just want a slice of pizza.

    The cafeteria is okay. When you first get here it is so overwhelming because there is so much food. Some days are better than others, but you will never NOT like something in the caf. There are way too many options to go hungry!

    If you live in a dorm you are automatically charged a meal plan. Between 7 and 8 dollars a meal for a minimum of 10 meals a week is over $70 spent on crappy food every week. That is way too much money. Everyone knows that the food is terrible. I would have given this 0 stars but you had to choose at least one.

    The cafeteria food was average. However, they have added new on campus food choices in the past year, so the choices and options are much better than when I first went to DBU.

    The cafeteria food is great! They provide multiple options every time so there's something for everyone. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and sometimes even a midnight snack! DBU also has a Chickfila, Papa Johns, Starbucks and smoothie bar located conveniently on the campus. Other snack bars are located in the library as well.

    I grew up with a mom who isn't a great cook and didn't cook much. So I absolutely loved the cafeteria food! My favorite was the chicken fried steak nights:) Now on campus the offer a Chik-fil-a and a Papa John's Pizza. So I'm sure those places will be poppin'.

    Our Greek Life is unlike most. At DBU, our sororities and fraternities are centered around serving. We do not have any national sororities or fraternities because they try to change the face of Greek Life here.

    Greek Life is separate from other schools and caters specifically to DBU. Great way to make friends and grow in those relationships.

    Very different at DBU. It is a dry campus, so sororities and fraternities are for friends and discipleship.
