Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    I have to preface this by saying that I am a very picky eater, so the dining options tend to get repetitive to me. However, there are many options for those much less picky than I am, including a homestyle food line, an oriental food line, a salad bar, a grille, and more. Personally, I just tend to stick to the same couple lines, but the food that I eat is good. The cafeteria workers are very nice and caring as well.

    There are several options for students to chose from and there are even off campus dining options that you can pay for with your student I.D.

    The dining hall provides a variety of options each day, the unlimited trips through the food line during each meal is a huge perk.

    Our cafeteria is a great place for all students to be. It serves as a hangout space for most students and the food is also alright. There are many options to chose from and students always get creative with their choices.

    Don't eat the same thing for four years or else you will get tired of it. You will learn how to be creative with the food options.

    Sodexo does a great job of keeping us well fed. If you miss dinner, you can always go pick up a sandwich in Ben's Den or get a smoothie at Jazzman's Cafe! The college also offers off campus dining at various restaurants around campus as well.

    We have one dining hall on campus along with a coffee shop and a convenience store. The dining hall has tons of variety when it comes to what they are serving and they always have something for everyone. The coffee shop is great and is very comparable to Starbucks. Our convenience store is stocked with snacks, sandwiches, medicines, candy, and drinks.

    As with every college or university, you will have your nay-sayers about the food topic. In my opinion, and after four years, I have never had a problem finding something to eat and that appeals to me on a certain day. You just have to be creative and you'll definitely enjoy yourself.

    Unlike many other schools, Franklin has a very wide variety of food options every day. The lines include a home style cooking line, a sub sandwich line, a vegetarian line, and some others as well.

    Greek life is amazing here and includes passionate individuals who work hard to raise money for their philanthropies. Greeks here go against the stereotype and strive to make Franklin a better place. I would recommend going through the process to meet both the members of your class as well as older members.

    Greek Like is GREAT! Franklin has 5 Fraternities and 3 sororities. We are a tight-knit community and we help each other out with different philanthropy events. No matter where you turn, you have someone there behind your back, supporting you every step of the way.

    Awesome! At Franklin Greek Life is more about being a greek community. We have a lot of philanthropy events and everyone gets really close. My roommate is not in the same sorority as me, so its not your typically petty greek life!

    About 44% of the campus is Greek. It is a non-pressure system, so students are not forced to go Greek. It is also not the stereotypical Greek life you see on television. The focus is on philanthropies, networking, and building yourself as a person.

    We have 3 sororities and 5 fraternities on campus. The sororities don't have houses but they each have their own suite that they meet in. The fraternities do have houses.

    Greek life is prominent for the size of the campus. It is not forced upon students, but it provides another way for students to get involved on campus and form lifelong friendships and even potential networking opportunities.

    Greek life is a major thing on Franklin College's campus. With 37 percent of students being involved in Greek life, nearly half the campus is involved with giving back to their community through philanthropy events, creating events for others to attend, and participating in Greek only activities.
