    The food sucks and you have very few choices for food on campus.

    The food on compass depends on the night and who is cooking. For a Culinary School, the food definitely should be better.

    It varies. But being on harborside, you get sick of pasta. There are plenty of options downtown or on harborview though.

    Restaurant, fast food, and buffet styled dining halls on campus. There is a JWU app that tells the menu for the day at the buffet styled dining halls. The app also tells you the hours of operation.

    We have a couple of diners and eating places like harborview, snowden, city burger, red sauce, liberty market and starbucks. I personally can't get over the coffe in starbucks, i drink it everyday. The soups at red sauce are soooo good and snowden is my ultimate favorite place to go for breakfast. They omlettes and pancakes buffet style. Harborview has a make your own salad bar and stir fry with a burger station. It has really good food and the fries at city burger are to die for.

    For a culinary school, it is lackluster. There are a few good options throughout the week but you're typically limited to pizza and sandwiches. Most of the food is disgusting due to budget issues. The menu is on a continuous schedule so you typically eat the same exact meal multiple times a week.

    As a member of Greek Life on campus, I believe it is an excellent opportunity for students to improve as a person. It gets students involved in community service, on campus activities, and networking. Members of Greek organizations tend to have higher GPAs because it means a lot to them and they also have very strong values. I also promote Greek Life to prospective students.
