Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    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.

    The food and dining are top notch. There are many places to eat. The main dining spot for freshman is the Fresh Food Caf���©. After a while, the Fresh Food Caf���© might seem monotonous, but students have the option to diversify and go to different venues on campus and also restaurants like Chipotle that are nearby.

    I'm a vegetarian, and there are always tons of options, but I get sick of the limited options.

    Disclaimer: I haven't eaten on campus in 2 years, and haven't been to the Fresh Food Cafe (FFC) in 4. The meal plans were rather overpriced for their value, and the FFC is a pretty standard cafeteria, so food is rotated and becomes boring pretty fast. Levering Cafe has pretty good options, but it's only open during lunch. Charles Street Market (CharMar) is seriously overpriced, and usually doesn't have great quality for fruits and veggies (but there is a milkshake machine, so that's a plus). I was happy to not have a meal plan starting sophomore year, and I never went back on the meal plan once I got off of it. Packing lunch and making dinner was not very time consuming, but it was much more cost effective (and delicious).

    While the food is still school food, there really isn't much to complain about. People do complain, of course, because of the mere fact that it is college food and your mom is no longer cooking for you.

    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.

    Your best bet is Pi Kappa, but I would also check out Sigma Chi (personally, I like AE Pi the best). Just text an upperclassmen and they'll tell you where the parties are. I'm not a huge fan of the Greek Life, but one thing that I do like is that they sponsor really cool activities. They had a Luau once sponsored by Sigma Chi, and because of how good the food was, we decided to go to their party that night. I would also go with people who know where to go and what they're doing. Otherwise, it won't be fun.
