  • I am a commuter, so I've had very little personal experience with the dorms. However, I've never heard of any student having any serious complaints or concerns regarding the dorms.…

    ok so not all the food is horrible but the food in the sub (student union building) is not always that great and often is the same thing every day. the best places to go are jeepers and the cafeteria in the dickinson hall building. there are also plenty of restaurants and fast food places around or if you're more looking for a night in there are places that will deliver food to the dorms. but again not a fan of the sub food and will often, ok always, avoid it unless my roommate asks me to tag along.

    There are three different cafe's on campus. If you choose to dorm, you are required to purchase a university meal plan. The meal plan allows you to swipe in one of the three cafes, in which you can eat similar to a buffet style, three times a day. There are a variety of foods that are offered from pizza, to burritos, to Chinese. There is even a salad bar and a sandwich bar where you can make a sandwich to go and take it with you to class. If you are not in the mood for campus food, there are many different locations where you can go off campus to eat. There is a multitude of diners around campus, as well as two malls. Also, New York City is a simple bus or train ride away, therefore you can make a trip and enjoy an assortment of foods to fit your preferences.

    The food is really good. If you get bored, you have to suggest something that you would like to have, don't just complain. There are also about 4 living options that have kitchens, including Northpointe (the most expensive building) the honors house (only honors students are allowed to live here) The Global Scholars house (for student in the global scholars program) and Linden 6

    The food has many selections, but it can be the same type of selection for a couple of days. Most of the chefs prepares the food well but there are a couple that constantly burn the food. Overall the food is good and when you are hungry for breakfast, you can cook your own food at 6 or 8'o'clock at night. There's a healthy food section and a section to cook your own food if a student gets tired if his or her food.

    The food here is excellent and is top of the notch. I am a commuter here but when I do decide to have some food at the campus there is a great variety available. Not only meals from the cafeteria but also in this restaurant called Jeepers where they serve many hot meals to the students and faculty members there, as well as a variety of vending machines.

    Greek Life on this campus is more based upon community service opposed to partying like it is known for.
