Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

  • I am researching this school and have not visited the campus

    There was so many different types of food options. Literally there is food for every ethic background. The food could use more seasoning.

    According to my tour guide, the food is amazing at the dining hall, and some juniors and seniors miss having the meal plan because of it. I take that as a good sign.

    They have some great Korean diners nearby. Besides that, they also have cafes (I can't add the apostrophe to the e) near all of the places students are most likely to study.

    Make no mistake, you will get tired of the same food after a while. But the Fresh Food Cafe has good quality food, and awesome desserts. They could do with more non-starch vegetables though. Nolans leaves a little more to be desired- aside from the salad bar, it doesn't have as many veggies (unless you count fried or mashed potatoes), and the menu only varies weekly.

    At first, the idea of an unlimited meal plan intrigued me. Unfortunately, I started growing tired of the food at FFC (the cafeteria). I don't think the food was bad; everyone was just expecting more of the food. Sure, there's other places to eat, but you have pay for those (outside of the meal plan money). On St. Paul, there's a lot of places to grab food (Subway, Chipotle, Uni Mini, etc.).

    Freshmen generally eat at the Fresh Food Cafe, referred to as the FFC. It is a standard buffet-style college cafeteria with usually delectable desserts. The Levering Food Court offers more appetizing options but is only open for lunch. Charles Street Market, or CharMar, is a good place to pick up late-night snacks but unless you're spending Dining Dollars (meal plan currency), it isn't really worth it. Sophomores usually eat at Nolan's, located in Charles Commons.

    The food is great. There are also many restaurants and coffee shops around. Since the university is located in Baltimore, there's a variety of seafood and food options.

    Hopkins offers more or less your typical college food. The Fresh Food Cafe is the go-to place for all-you-can-eat buffet style food, and it's also the place where freshman take most of their meals. Levering Cafe is great for lunch, and Charles Street Market is the perfect place to pick up a quick snack or a few groceries. Variety isn't a problem because there's something on campus for everyone, and the local restaurant scene is phenomenal. The meal plans are quite expensive, however, and you may often feel like you're not eating your money's worth.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    Greek life isn't too prevalent in Hopkins if you don't want it to be. The recent scandals involving fraternities seems to have diminished the quality and presence of parties though.

    Fraternities and sororities are a huge part of student life on campus. Even the the sororities at Hopkins don't live in sorority housing, Greek life is a fun and rewarding experience for hundreds of women at Hopkins. Fraternities, meanwhile, are the center of the majority of the social life on campus. Whether or not you choose to rush, Greek life is definitely something to think about.

    Greek life exists, but it's not the most important thing on campus (that would be studying, in case you haven't paid attention). Greek life connected me with my best friend, who in turn helped me ace some of my classes, but I'm confident I would've had plenty of fulfilling relationships if I hadn't decided to join. There are more opportunities to party off-campus if you join a sorority, specifically - all of ours have 2-3 events per semester off campus.

    Participate if you wish. Do not feel as if there are 'consequences' for engaging in opportunities outside of Greek Life.

    While you do not have to be in greek life, it makes time at Hopkins pretty enjoyable and a lot more friendlier. All of the frats and sororities are very nice to one another and it is just an option for more friends and social activities.

    I don't participate in Greek Life, but around a third of the students here do, and a lot of the social life (at least as an underclassmen, before you get to know people who live in apartments and therefore can throw house parties) does revolve around frat parties.

    25% of students participate in Greek Life. It's not a very noticeable presence on campus--people don't shun or idolize you for being or not being a part of Greek Life. Most parties are held by fraternities, but you don't have to join one to enjoy these benefits. It's a personal preference, and people respect that here.

    Umm... it's mostly fraternity driven since they're they only ones with houses and the only ones that throw parties. The sororities, from what I gather, all have their own stereotypes. Like Phi Mu are stereotyped to be bubbly and blonde etc. Frat houses are pretty dingy and gross though, and the first 2 months reek of alcohol and sweat (as most frats do) but they are so cramped with freshman that it becomes really unbearable. I mean the walls are literally dripping with sweat.
