Student Responses to Review Topic: Food And Dining

    The food at Liberty is FABULOUS! However, it is nothing like a good home-cooked meal. I really like Reber Thomas Dining Hall (AKA: The Rot) and Doc's Diner's burgers. There are two Subconnection locations on campus (Knock-off subway)..The one at Green Hall accepts meal swipes and the one at Demoss does not!

    Great dining hall with many options for any taste. There are also multiple on and off campus restaurants.

    The food is great but as after awhile I think no matter what college you go to you'll be missing your mom's food. They do have a lot of choices though ranging from pizza, Chinese food, salad bar, burritos, and burgers.

    The meal plan is great, the variety of food is massive and there are many options of places to eat. It's hard to get tired of the same-old college food.

    Campus offers plenty of food options from Chi-fil-A to Starbucks. The dining halls offer gluten-free options now and have ranked in the top healthiest schools in the country. Just be forewarned that The Rot got its nickname for a reason.

    Liberty doesn't have any greek life, but there are lots of little clubs and things people get into, and they get pretty close.
