    Get off that meal plan ASAP! Hendrix has an award-winning caf with so many theme days and crazy dishes, you will get fat. One of the best things about the caf is the caf workers. They will learn everyone's name, including yours, and they will bring you a cake and sing a birthday song on your birthday (along with everyone else in the caf). It's a great experience for freshmen who might be homesick and unsure about their new friends for everyone to be clapping and singing with them on their birthday.

    Hendrix dining is phenomenal. Dining Services has won many awards because of theme days that are put on (Paris Day, Halloween, Mediterranean Cruise, etc). Aside from the theme days, the everyday food is also very good; there is always a wide variety of things to choose from. There are always vegan and vegetarian options as well.

    The food is great. There is always a variety of choices to pick from. Sometimes if I am not in the mood for the food the school is having that day I can easily go to the cook it yourself line and make a meal of my own. Besides breakfast, lunch and dinner, the school also has a late night meal time. Hours are from 7 pm to 12 am and the food is great. Especially after studying all day it feels great to have a cooked meal of your choice at around 10 or 11 pm. The culinary team is wonderful. They make you feel welcomed to the cafeteria.

    The food is so good and so diverse! It definitely feels like you're eating at a restaurant rather than in a cafeteria.

    There's a lot of options if you're vegetarian or vegan, and that was important to me. The cafeteria staff will learn your name and remember details about you, making it more cozy. I haven't gotten tired of the food, but some people say it gets old after awhile. Eating is a communal event and the food is always good.

    Didn't get to try the food at the school, but the town seemed nice, with lots of restaurants.

    Hendrix's cafeteria is spectacular. The food is delicious. Hendrix has a main life which alternates foods every day. There is always a section for sandwiches; Soups are always offered. Vegetarian and vegan options are always available. Some sort of international food is always offered. There are stations to make stir-fry and smoothies. The cafeteria staff is also very kind. They make an effort to learn every students' name.

    The food at Hendrix is most likely very good in comparison to a lot of other colleges. The food here is always relatively yummy, and that is coming from a major food critic.

    None! Best thing about HDX in my opinion. Every event is open to every student. It really fosters the close-knit attitude that I love about Hendrix.

    There is no Greek life at Hendrix. All special events are held for everyone in school to attend.

    Hendrix College is missing two pillars of southern collegiate life: Greek life and football. Although the school is likely to get a football time in the near future. There is no Greek Life on campus, but the dorms take the place and serve as a unique identity for their residents.

    There is no greek life at Hendrix, but like everything great. Freshman dorms act as sororities and fraternities and we host activities such as Faux Rush Week and Shirttails. Plus it is always fun five years down the road to say I was an Easy VZ girl. A.K.A. I lived in Veasey Hall for freshman and sophomore year.
