  • Eckerd is known for it's sense of community. There is no greek life, however a family is created at the different complexes on campus. Since the campus is in Florida…

    Triton's Pub at Eckerd College is the top dining place on campus. The staff is friendly and nice. They will spark a conversation and remember you. Get to know them because they are awesome. They are another integral part of the Eckerd community that can not be overlooked. There are friendly faces at every turn at Eckerd College. Eckerd College also offer two cafeteria's with buffet style food which differs from the made to order stations at Triton's Pub.

    The food is okay. Could be better. The pub has the better food with wraps, burgers, chicken, pitas, and milkshakes!

    I went to the Triton pub for lunch. The food was okay. It was just typical--burgers, fries, sandwiches, pizza. There aren't a lot of choices, I would probably just cook my own food after freshman year.

    The food is good but after awhile they repeat themselves quite often. The food can also at times taste quite bland.

    The cafeteria is nicer than a lot, but doesn't provide a lot of variety. Fortunately, there are three places to eat on campus, which should give you different options for whatever you are in the mood for.

    There are two choices: the café and the pub. From salads to Chinese food, The café has a variety of selections for all sorts of people. At the pub, the meal is cooked right in front of you. I recommend the turkey melt; its delicious.

    Food was average. Not many other options than your cafeteria/meal plan food.

    The food here is really great. There's a good variety of food offered each meal and the pizza is great. You can choose to eat healthy too as they have a lot of food being prepared on the spot as well. Lines can be long though. The salad bar is great and there's always fresh fruit.

    There are no fraternities or sororities at Eckerd College. Eckerd College has the sense of community you would get with Greek Life, but without any of the Greek Life house dues!

    We have none! All of our dorm complexes are named after Greek alphabet letters, but that's about as Greek as we get.

    Eckerd is one giant fraternity, there is no need for a Greek system here.
