    When we went to visit the people said their food used to be really bad and now it's ok but nothing to write home about.

    The food here is nothing special. There is some really delicious food (Cosi flatbread, caf cookies, the grille's buffalo chicken wrap), and some not so good food. But there are a lot of options available both off and on campus, especially with Arthur Ave.'s Little Italy right outside the gates.

    There are a ton of options on campus including cosi and Hale & Hearty. And there are so many restaurants on Fordham Road and Arthur Avenue.

    The cafeteria was large, spacious, and had a copious amount of good food. I even got free desert whilst visiting!

    I happened to like the food selection but most of the students don't but one thing is most definite is that the food is pricey

    The cafe offers Red Mango, and soups and sandwiches. These are meant to be supplemental to cooking in the apartment and eating out in the city. An $800 meal plan is mandatory freshman year for each semester.

    The main cafeteria is the biggest complaint on campus. That being said everything else about Fordham is great. There are many alternatives to the main cafeteria. There are three other places to eat on campus that offers cafe-styled food, i.e. paninis, heroes, and soups, and off campus is Arthur Avenue! However, the buffet styled cafeteria tends to be the main eatery, but it also tends to be a hit or miss. The food isn't great, but I would NEVER dismiss this school for that tiny detail.

    If you're looking for Greek life, Fordham is not for you. There are houses off campus where many students call home but there aren't any sororities or frats.

    NO GREEK LIFE. I was never interested, but some may be disappointed.
