Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    If you can get a kitchen for your first year, use it. The dining hall has limited options, and the food is often frozen and bland. It's difficult to get food in the evenings and on weekends, since the cafeteria closes extremely early and there are no other options for using your meal plan. They really aren't good about making meals available to people with a number of different schedules. The meal plan is really the only bad thing about this school, so if you can afford it by making your own food, that's the best option.

    No choices especially for anyone with any sort of diet that has restrictions. Kind of terrible if you have any allergies. I don't recommend but it is convenient to get coffee during class.

    Literally the worst, the meal plan is grossly limited, and also just gross. People who live in apartment-style suites (Alumni and Kaufman halls) do not automatically get a meal plan, which is really more a blessing than anything; it's NYC, so there's plenty of options.

    The cafeteria is an experience. If you want to eat healthy, you're going to eat at the salad bar everyday.

    The food in the dining hall is decent. You have the choice to pick from stuff on a grill, deli, sushi, home cooked meals station, pizzeria, salad station and a global station. The menus changes at most of the stations daily. There is also a Starbucks that is located in the dining hall.

    One of my greatest concerns are having to take unknown meals that are probably fool of fat and unhealthy ingredients I don't know of! But FIT's dining facilities offer a range of healthy meals that put my mind at ease.

    There isn't any greek life here. Another plus for me; I didn't have to worry about frat parties.

    There is one sorority and one fraternity. Greek life isn't huge here, so if that's important to you, better to look elsewhere.

    Greek life is non existent. This school is not associated with any fraternities or sororities.
