    The food is not bad but it sure is not fine dining. There are three places to eat on campus. The first is the 255 Bistro, which has pre-made sandwiches, pre-made salads, yogurt, and other snacks, along with various lattes and other drinks. Then there is Lane, which is the main cafeteria, which has sandwiches, a salad bar, soups, pizza, burgers, and a hot dish that varies with each meal of the day but every week it repeats and then changes completely every few weeks. Lastly there is Gilles, which is open at odd hours, late at night and between meals. Gilles late night is where all the unhealthy food everyone loves is, it has nachos, mozzarella sticks, burgers, waffle fries, and ice cream. They have specials for dinner and lunch sometimes which varies, but my favorite is sushi on Thursdays.

    the food is pretty good. If your looking for a snack or coffee between classes the bistro is the place to go. My favorite though is getting a black leprachaun late at night when its time to hit the books in cheaters.

    You go through and pay like you will in the real world - no open buffet. But everything from the make-your-own waffles to the ice cream machine is to die for!

    Though some complain of a lack of variety, I'm pretty satisfied with the food at Gordon. There are always the safe options at every meal where you can eat if you have no other choices - the grill, sandwiches, pizza, pasta and salad. Otherwise, the main courses are usually very good - steak, steamed veggies, fish, casseroles, and more. Specials are always good, like paninis, pad thai, burrito bowls and soup in a bread bowl! You'll always find something you like! The only downside is that the hot food line options on the weekends are a little repetitive.

    We're a dry campus: no Greek life here! (Unless you want to count the Biblical studies majors brushing up on the ancient language!)
