  • The dorms are some of the best in the area, you have the chance to meet and/or choose your own roommate and choose your living style. Most of the furniture…

    I don't eat at school everyday but when I do I enjoy my meal. Its not the usual cafeteria food that no one likes. It has a good flavor and the price is moderate.

    The cafeteria's in Lewis is really well made because it focuses on dining while eating. The food is good and affordable. Also, they have pool tables and games in the cafeteria's. The best thing about Lewis cafeteria is that they have a variety of choices of food to buy and eat.

    No matter where you eat on campus, the food is amazing. Everything is cooked well and it tastes wonderful. It's 1000 times better than the food you eat at your high school.

    3 dining locations and only one really changes on a daily basis, meanwhile the others would add extra food for a certain time or because of the season.

    Honestly, the food has it's good days and it's bad days. There's not really much of variety. Two of the three options sell the same meals everyday and the one place that switches it up for lunch and dinner (same breakfast items everyday) is either hit or miss. On the plus side, every so often that same place has crave events where they choose a theme: Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Seafood and serve meals based on that theme - it's pretty cool ... and yummy.

    Non-hazing fraternities and sororities. While they are secretive as tradition, the requirements and pledging process is extremely watered down.

    Our Greeks are very involved with the community, and going out of their way to recruit new members. No hazing process. Since freshman have to wait a semester to apply, Greeks are usually open to hanging out with us in order to get to know each other and see if the sorority or fraternity life is for us.
