  • I got to see one of the dorms and it looked kind of small. However, West Hall (an all woman's dorm) has large rooms (my tour guide said they were…

    A new policy has been put into place stating that any student living on campus with sixty credit hours or less is required to have a meal plan. In my opinion, only freshmen should be required to have a meal plan because it is not always the easiest thing to come to the marketplace and eat. Plus, the food is not always of good quality, despite the amount of money paid for the plan, making it hard to eat healthy. Also, quite a few of the dorm building have either a kitchen or a kitchenette located in each room, which we pay extra to have, but having a meal plan makes these kitchens pointless until junior year.

    the campus has a bunch of different places to eat (subway, starbucks, quizzno's, chickfila, taco-bella, two different einsteins bros. locations), and multiple different student run market places that sell food. etsu also has the buc mart which is an on campus market/grocery store.

    There seems to be adequate dining options on campus, and it isn't all junk food. The prices are reasonable. I generally bring my own lunch from home, and there are plenty of places to sit and eat inside and out.

    There's a really nice cafe in the library. I've spent good few hours there sipping tea and snacking while my father studies for his pharmacy degree.

    There are some nice restaurants on campus -like Taco Bell, Starbucks, Chick-Fil-A, Subway, some convenience stores and other restaurants. They also have a buffet style cafe. The cafe does not have the best food, but one card swipe and you have an endless amount of food to eat at the cafe, which is great if you depend solely on your meal plan. You can use your meal plan at all of the restaurants and convenience stores on campus, but you are limited to about $6 per purchase during the designated breakfast, lunch and dinner times. If you do not have a meal plan, I do not recommend going to the cafe, for it will be $8 for the buffet food without a meal plan, and the food is not worth it.

    They had a lot of dining options but they were all a little pricy. Also, the cafe is buffet style, which is good. My guide said that breakfast is by-far the best meal. They also do not force you to purchase a meal plan, and since most housing buildings have their own kitchens, it would probably be cheaper just to do a little grocery shopping and cook for yourself.

    Personally, I wouldn't get a meal plan. They have a Starbucks and a Taco Bell and an Einsteins along with a cafeteria and a few mini grocery stores that are over priced like your typical on campus grocery store. Just do your grocery shopping at Kroger and learn to cook some tasty, cheap meals.

    The food on campus is not bad, but always expensive. There are some really good, cheap joints downtown that offer lunch specials.

    there's a lot of different fraternities and sororities, and they work with the local population and other organizations to give back to the community.

    The people on the tour who asked about the greek life seemed pretty pleased with what the tour guide said, so I guess it's good.

    You either fit in to the greek life or you don't. I do not. I think it is a waste of time and money. You may be the right fit though. I would check it out just to see if interested.

    There are several sororities and fraternities on campus, but I am not involved with any. Several of my friends are involved, however, and seem to enjoy it greatly.
