Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • Feb-18-2017 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I have eaten in the Cafe, and I absolutely love the food and the cooks there. They have a wide rang of food to select from, they make sure the attend to those with specific food allergies, and prepare food the way you love it. The cafe, is a big and roomy, and has entertainment centers, even though you probably wont need it, with plenty of room for your friends to be around you.

    I feel sick every time I eat in the cafeteria. The student center has some good options, but I wish there were another place with some healthier food that actually tastes decent.

    The Student Center is curently undergoing renovations but the dining in the cafeteria is not of very high quality and yet is farely expensive. The meat is sometimes undercooked and there is not much fresh fruits and vegetables available. Although, I dont believe the quality of the food to be very good, I do believe they have improved each year.

    The food at Harding isnt the greatest... The Caf (main dining hall) can be pretty iffy at times but you can also go to the stu (student center) to get things like Taco bell, chic fila, Chinese food (possibly panda express after the new renovations) or visit the mini mart. I am not a coffee drinker but I know many others are so for coffee lovers there is a starbucks on campus and a local coffee shop called Midnight Oil very close by which I have been told has fantastic coffee.

    The food is good at first, but it does get old. Luckily you have Chick-fil-a, a burger place that lets you build your own burger, Taco Bell, and another sandwich shop. There is a lot of variety to chose from.

    No. Just NO. I LOVE Harding. But the cafeteria food is terrible. The Grill is okay (mostly hamburgers and fries) but it gets old fast. There are other options like declining balance on your meal plan can be applied places on campus like Chickfila, Java City, and Taco Bell. However, you only have a limited about on that, so don't spend it all at once. The caf has good days in the comfort foods, but usually I stick to the soup or the stuff they have everyday.

    The food at Harding in not the best, but it could be worse. We have multiple different options, and of course there is always our student center you can rely on if the cafeteria isn't reliable. They are really good about making sure they please everyone's food styles.

    The cafeteria is a typical cafeteria, not great, not terrible. There is also a taco bell and sandwich shop on campus in the student center area. If you can cook, you are ahead of the game.

    Harding does not have traditional fraternities and sororities. Instead there are social clubs that do service projects and promote school spirit. Harding assures club membership to all students who desire it.

    Well at Harding we call the greek life social clubs, same things (no frat houses) just a different name. Social clubs are a great way to get involved and meet some awesome people. Only downside is that some people take rivalries very seriously, but those people are easy to ignore. GO BOX!

    Harding does things a little differently. Our fraternaties and sororities are simply called clubs. They are made from the same Greek letters and whatnot, but there is no hazing allowed, no drinking, none of the stuff that you see on t.v. about college greek life.

    There's a few Greeks, but most of them are just as down to earth as the rest of us non-Greeks. We're all equal in God's eyes.

    Harding does not do the national Greek sororities and fraternities. They have their own social clubs that often use greek letters. They are very similar.
