  • The dorm life is rather nice and it's like most colleges except there are three halls from which new students can choose from. As for returning students the accommodations…

    The dining hall has a limited variety and very little signage, overall the outakes is a decent place for a grab and go meal, soon on campus we will have a new dining venue beginning in the fall of 2015.

    Our dinning hall is subpar. For a culinary school it should be better, but culinary students do not work in it. There are lots of options available though, sometimes they are not good though.

    The food here is not good. I am extremely picky though. They offer a lot of food. Pizza is served everyday. The breakfast is the best, but I'm never up that early to eat it. Outtakes which is like a shop with starbucks and a convenience store is good, but you can only use your swipe if you're doing a meal exchange, otherwise the money comes out of your pocket.

    Since we switched people over winter break, our food has really gone downhill. The school should've just stuck with the contract they had rather than getting a new one with shittier people.

    The food at the beginning of the year was really good but as the year has progressed the food quality has gone downhill and fast. But compered to other campuses we have it pretty good. Also they just switched dining services so that is taking some getting use to. The hall is kept in decent shape so the eating space is clean.

    Although this is a Culinary based school, it does not mean that the food is always gourmet. Sometimes they repeat dishes and they are not the best.

    The dining hall has its ups and downs. When it's on an upswing everything is delicious, but when it's on a downswing everything is less than what you're looking for. I'd say it's pretty average for a college, but it would be nice to have a convenience store on campus that was open more often.

    Hmm the dining hall, it has its' great days and horrible days. There is a variety but there are those days when nothing sounds good. Those are the days you go to the grocery store and cook dinner in our dorm community kitchens or if you have a kitchen in you're room, or hit up the McDonalds down the street, or even enjoy the Denver community and try somthing different like Ethiopian food.

    Ultimately no food will ever be home style cooking, but compared to most universities, our food is the bomb! It's an all you can eat buffet set up with a sandwich station, a home cooked meal station, a grill, a made to order station, a vegetarian station, dessert station, cereal bar, and even a Pepsi machine! One will never go hungry at the Wildcat Dining Center.

    Dining Hall is open 7 days a week and features a buffet style with new stuff every day! It is hit and miss on how delicious the food is day to day, but you can always find something that you like. And with dorms for no additional cost you get 15 free meals a week! Beats Ramen by far!

    There very little Greek life on campus. I think there is one sorority and fraternity.

    We do not have a big greek life on campus. We have one sorority, and while they are very happy, it is not a big part of our school.

    At the Denver campus there is only one sorority; however, I believe that there is more Greek Life at the Providence campus. The sorority hosts a few fun events, such as a Date Auction for Valentine's Day.

    Because this school is small, there are only one or two options. I am not involved personally, but I have heard they are enjoyable.
