    Though it's not a home cooked meal the food is very good for that made to feed as many people as it does. Many options, many one can make on one's own.

    The food in our dining hall is pretty bad, but if you want to eat at the student center that is a possibility and the food there is good. There's also a library cafe where you can pick up snacks.

    The dining hall is the one thing I dislike here. The dining hall isn't open throughout the day and the choices are VERY repetitive. If your a picky eater, good luck. The food is also very infamous for making people sick.

    It's a college. There's a variety of food, but maybe some stuff you don't always like. It happens! I never starve.

    Eastern sources a large portion of food locally and has a variety of meal options for students. Between a small grocery store in the Library Cafe, Starbucks Coffee in the student center and the Hurley Dining Hall, there are many choices for food. In addition the small city of Willimantic has many dining options from Chinese to Italian to seafood. There are many popular fast food franchises too such as Dunkin' Donuts, Burger King, Dominoes and McDonald's within walking distance, very popular during finals week.

    For Freshman, Hurley Hall is okay. Every year they are working on improving the quality of food. It is slowly getting better. An alternative option, that it slightly more expensive, is the student center. In the student center is a bunch of food vendors that have a variety of options and taste pretty good. Upperclassmen dorms with kitchens are the way to go as long as you don't mind cooking yourself food.

    Eastern's meal prices can be overpriced, but the food is good. There is a cafe located in the library as well as a dining area in the Student Center. The products are almost always of high quality and are made quickly for on-the-go students. Hurley dining hall food is not as good as what is offered at the cafes on campus and meals can become very repetitive.

    There is no Greek life. This is pretty sad because there's not a lot of partying or other fun stuff going on, but our Campus Activity Board does its best to compensate.

    Eastern does not have fraternities or sororities, there is however a Greek Life club which emulates this lifestyle.
